    One of my goals was to choose a gun that would be lighter and smaller than my current EDC Glock 19. Would the Colt feel smaller while carrying?

    I think my G19 is about 30 ounces loaded. What is the Colt?

    This. A detective Special? There are probably guys here just drooling at the thought of getting their hands on one. I am not sure how the 38 compares to the 9Mak but it's more powerfull than the other 2 choices.

    I'm late but the Colt Detective Special is the best choice among the ones offered.
