Hey chameleon,

Are you the fellow I met at South Shore Sportsman a number of years back when we were in business?

Mike was the owner of that store.

Just curious. . . . . .

Hello Eric,
It was many years ago around this time we met at SHOT, I gave you a ride back to Rio.

Well, Iím still carrying my R9, it is in my pocket at this moment.
I was carrying the Sig 365, a great pistol, but striker fired. I still have a foundness for the R9.

I have been carrying my R9 for the past few weeks every day.
I ordered more 115gr Silvertips and have a range session planned.
Not many tiny 9mm pistols out there with DA and exposed hammer.

"Not many tiny 9mm pistols out there with DA and exposed hammer."

Exactly.  That can be a significant feature should you come across hard primers using a striker-fired pistol when the chips are down.

I carry my Rohrbaugh though there are others that take its place depending on the circumstances. Sometimes something smaller and lighter and sometimes something larger and sometimes something that Iím not as concerned about getting wet.

That is jus one plus.
 Striker fired pistol is cocked 7/8 and ready to fire, no turning back. Exposed hammer gives you a visual and an actual feel what position it is in, and when in my pocket, I want it at rest.
