I'm going to chime in and mention I like my DB9 for carry.
From your "bucket list" however:
My preference would the Glock 26.
I enjoy my time on the range when I have the gen 4, 19 in my hand. Glocks are reliable IMO and just handle well for me.

On the range again, just can't wait to get on the range again. The life I love is shooting guns with my friends, and I can't wait to get on the range again!
