I appreciate it, sir. No rush. Be safe out there.
Claymore, sorry for the delay! Hopefully these help out with your question, snapped quickly before getting back to work.

Something a little different, my current three revolvers beside each other. From left to right, the 5 shot .38 Special Charter Arms OnDuty, 6 shot .38 Special Colt Night Cobra, 7 shot .357 Magnum Taurus 617:










Now for their fully loaded weights. First up is the Charter Arms:






Next the Night Cobra:





Finally, the Taurus:






Finally, how they fit (and look) in my predominant firing hand:

Pistol comparisons (pic heavy)

Stopped by the ol’ gun shop down in Berea, KY earlier today and took a few quick pics of a relatively newer striker fire handgun on the market. I must say that after finally being able to handle one, color me very impressed and interested in perhaps getting one. Seems like the biggest gripe on them from online reviews is that early release models had magazines that wouldn’t drop free (this one pictured didn’t have that issue, however). That aside, my initial thoughts on it are that it has a great natural point of aim, excellent ergonomics, and a fairly decent trigger. If I get one down the road it’ll definitely be the “top tier” model with night sights, three mags, and three palm swell modules (the one installed on this one was just a bit too bulky IMHO). Anyway, onto the pics...

That Stoeger STR-9 Compact looks very interesting.  8)  Have seen one online review of it, which was positive.
Nice collection of snubby Revolvers you have there, too!  :)  I'm very partial to that Colt!  8)

LTT/Springfield XDe 3.3 vs Sig P365.




Both in the preferred carry configuration.

P365 with 10 round finger extension mag H: 4.5" L: 5.8" W over grip sleeve: 1.25", w/o grip sleeve; 1.1"

XDe with 8 round finger extension mag  H: 5.25"  L: 6.5" W over safety: 1.25"

After shooting 500 rounds from each, I'm selling or trading the Sig. Both are more than good enough carry pieces. The Sig's trigger is not for me, mushy and no distinct break with a 5 pound 12 ounce trigger pull. The XDe DA pull is 7 pounds 11 ounces the SA is 4 pounds even. I get similar practical accuracy from both pistols. While the XDe is a larger pistol, it carries about the same as the P365. Recoil is sharper and muzzle flip is greater with the P365.  Both favor Federal 124gr HST for defense ammo, they both shoot most 115gr and 124gr target ammo well enough.

I probably will continue to carry my Kimber K6s most of the time, I still have a preference for revolvers and the K6s has been the best one for me.

Traded off the extra, unused Glock 26 I had for another 9mm pistol that I previously owned a few years ago and regrettably sold off. Here’s several pics of it (before a few small mods) beside my other Gen 5 G26 that I’m currently holding onto. Immediate mods will be an aggressive grip stippling, “G” conversion (decock only) with the Stealth decock levers, and an Ameriglo CAP front night sight. Eventually may look into a DAO conversion, but that’ll wait. Now, to get out and shoot it at my range, aka the backyard...

Taurus G3 full size vs Beretta APX Centurion
They are the same size essentially but the Beretta is thicker and heavier(nearly 1/4#!).  Also, notice how far under the slide the beretta grip sits as opposed to the long nose profile of the G3.  It's crazy.
