    I know exactly what you're going through.
    I got back into guns a little over a year ago, and just had to have a Sig 226 [was my service weapon] Picked up a new one, then had to have a 220 to go with it, grabbed a new 220 carry sas gen 2. Then a 220 Legion, Then a 226 Legion, 938 , 290 320Rx and 365.

    While i was collecting all these nice Sigs, i won a gen 4 g19 ... And man was it lite, felt pretty good in my hand and i kept shooting it as i added more Sigs.
    Once i bought the 320rx compact , and then put the xcarry grip on it, that was all she wrote for the Glock. Sold it and never looked back.
    For a year however, my wife never let me forget that i sold it,and how much she liked it.
    So for her birthday this year i bought her a midnight bronze g19.4 .
    She loves it, and while handling it i felt a little jealous that i didn't have one for myself.

    In the last year i found that i didn't need two 226's and sold one, then went the 220 carry, then the 290, then the 938. Finally the 226 Legion. Down to my 220 Legion and my 320rx xcarry.
    Learned that i really like Czs and replaced some of my Sigs with them.
    Sp01 Shadow,75b, sp01 tactical,p07. All wonderful guns...

    Then a few weeks ago we went to the Gun show , me looking for another CZ and a set of grip for my SA 1911 RO , Walked out with G19.5 MOS.
    My point? I like a lot of guns, Glocks just work for me, and i can't seem to stay away from them.

    Before i won that g19.4 , i had knew nothing about them, other than to watch out for that Glock 7...
    YMMV...

    In the transition to polymer guns have you considered the in-between polymer hammer guns?

    HK USPs are my darling.

    These days polymers rule, though strikers leave me cold.

    I have had about 10 USP HKs. Three presently.

    Maybe?

    I pretty much feel the same as you, but have you tired a PPQ? It really closes the gap between hammer and striker fired guns.

    For hammer fired polymer framed guns, I've been a fan of the Sig Pro for awhile now. Not sure what it is about it; I just shoot it very well. Other people who I've let try it shoot it well, too. The CZ SP01 is also quite good. The FNP deserves an honorable mention in this category as well.

    Speaking of which, there is a very nice Sig P2022 for sale (not mine) over in the trading forum right now.

    And the worst* of the hammer fired poly pistols is the Kel-Tec P11. I mean it's reliable and accurate once you master the 8.5 lbs DAO pull, but the hammer is hidden in the slide and you can't do anything with it other than watch it as you pull the trigger.

    *by worst, I mean worst of the acceptable spectrum. not counting utter garbage. The Kel-Tec is a decent pistol.

    Cz makes a hell of a hammer fired polymer.
    I had the p09 which is incredible, however I wanted something a little smaller and easier to carry.
    So I sold that one and bought a P07. Really good shooting gun.
    DA/SA trigger , very good trigger i might add, extremely accurate.

    Thanks for all the feedback everyone but from everything I have so far concerning polymer and revolver pistols I think I am going to put them both on the back burner for now and revisit them in the future.

    In the meantime I will be continuing to expand what I have now with a mint condition mid 1990's CZ-83 that I just purchased and a Wilson Combat Centurion Tactical that I will be getting very soon.
