Welcome from Florida! Personally, I’d go with the steel frame.
Welcome From Florida!! You're asking a question that has no easy answer .
I suggest re-asking your question, in the Staccato/2011 Forum, and looking through some of the existing conversations on the subject.
In my opinion, the 2019 P 4.1" with the ODS grip module is amazing!
