Got an email from Ruger today, they introduced the "LC9s", a new version of their single-stack pocket 9 with a striker system rather than the DAO trigger setup on the original.
Supposedly it has a much better trigger and fits in LC9 holsters. More importantly (to me,) they deleted the crap-tastic LCI flag and just went with a little viewing port. Still has a mag disconnect (darn) but they've included an "inert magazine for safe disassembly."
Looks like a good option for a small gun.
