Thank you for the long and superbly well written explanation and advice. Very much appreciated.
Despite being hardly able to give advice on specifics on the internet, all the advice I've been given so far really points me to either the CZ we've been discussing or the Baretta 92A1 with the accessory rail. I will make time to see if I can even hold the two at a gun shop soon while my FOID gets processed to see which I prefer from an initial impression. Both have a heck of a legacy.
