I don't just shoot my guns for defensive means. I also shoot for sport and target. There are some serious gems in the DA/SA world that you'd miss out on.

I shoot 2-3 times a week so just defensive style would bore the hell out of me after a while.

Not that hard to switch between Sao, da/Sa and striker. The irony of what you want to do is the striker is the perhaps least fun to shoot at the range assuming you shoot regularly. Maybe you don't. The striker and Sao offers you the most risk of failure minus restrike capability. Either way good luck.

If you are looking for advise, here's mine; I only have 3.8 handguns. In order of purchase, Mosquito, P226 EE in 40, Barsto 9mm conversion barrel and a P320 full size in 9mm with a carry and compact grip module. I would not part with any of them. My 226 is a work of craftsmanship and reliable as the day is long. My Mosquito, I can't sat enough positive about and my 320 is the one I shoot most. I like the variation and uniformity of my selected firearms and each has its merits but I find no set backs for either platform. I have my eye on a 357 revolver next but don't se it making any difference how I feel about my previous purchases. Maybe if I had a collection, I could part with some, but thinning the heard because of a preference just sounds wrong to me.

I am bad about going in streaks. I know it is bad, makes no sense... I did the da/sa, the striker fired... for some reason the SAO Sigs and 1911s keep getting worn...

Dump the DA/SA stuff

I'll give you 50 cents on the dollar for all that junk.

I must admit that I have recently purchased a P320 Compact 9mm (my first striker-fired pistol) and, after replacing a few parts, have really learned to like it.

If you do happen to have a P239 you want to get rid of, let me know.

On the flip side, being a entrenched DA/SA shooter, I still like have a few 1911s and striker fired guns around.

Try Sig with DAK, they are difficult to find but beat striker fired guns. (IMHO). Mine is a P239 in .357sig and a CT grip. With a 6.5lb pull its like a DAO revolver. I keep on the lookout for other DAKs. ps: don't sell your current DA/SA guns.

I tend to love hammer fire guns. Let's say a few years ago I got a G19 shot the heck out of it. Then came a XDm and more G guns. I am back to buying 226,229,938,1911's again.
I do have on order a 320 X Five and 320 X carry. I believe there is a place and purpose for every type.

FYI 19 year this November to my bride.

I can't justify the investment in multiple platforms of handguns. I've been a classic P-series sig shooter for the last 5 years and was getting geared up to switch to gen 4 glocks(pistols, mags, tools, spare parts, etc..)when the wife, who carries a G26, finally fired my P228. The phrase "can I have it" was right up there with "I do" or "we're having a baby" for me. No more Glocks!

I find a Sig Action Enhancement worked classic P-series sig and 19lb main spring really makes the DA a non-issue. It is sooo smooth. The trigger resets in the same place, whether DA or SA, so I personally don't have a problem with it.

If the investment value doesn't matter, rock on and keep them all. If you can't invest to the level you want in the striker fired guns, sell as many of the DA/SA you need to, to reach that investment level.

I'll never sell my semi-custom 1911s. I love those things..

I think I might have to just bite the bullet and do this on a couple of my Sigs. I've got a P229 and M11-A1 that I would love even more if their DA was as you describe.
