    I have been carrying a Lightweight Government 45 lately, which is nice because it shoots more like a full size gun but carries more like a Lwt Cmdr -- at least in terms of weight. I'd like to have a Lwt Gov in 38 Super but currently the only company I know of that is making one is Nighthawk Custom and I'm not currently committed to funding that purchase. That could change however.
    Get a DW Vigil in 9mm and fit, or have fit, a .38 super barrel.

    Yeah the Guardian in 38 Super has been around a while, but I am more interested in a lightweight 5" gun. DW makes the Vigil but not in 38 Super. The 9mm could be converted but I'm not sure I want to go that route. Nighthawk Custom will make one but of course that's an expensive option.

    My Lightweight Government 45 carries really nice and shoots like a full size gun should. It makes me wish I could find the same thing in 38 Super.

    I had DW build a custom gun for my dad for his 60th birthday a couple years ago. I wanted a 5” Valor in .38 Super, but they don’t have 5” .38 barrels. I had them build a .38 Super VBOB instead. Great gun.

    I also had a Guardian in .38 Super that I really liked.

    I can testify. Your statement is very

    One day recently at a store I noticed they had some striker fired guns. I was surprised they had some on the shelf. I thought about buying one. I've been carrying 1911 and LWC exclusively for almost 2 straight years. I held on to it, moved the trigger to take up point, checked sights. I was very surprised...at how much I was underwhelmed.
