The best weapon to carry is the one we are born with and it travels everywhere we go.
Using it wisely is a different matter and not everyone knows how or has the strength to do so which is why some people rely on guns instead.
First, thanks everyone for the input on this I really appreciate it. So looking at the suggestion I've come up with the following list of potential candidates. The other suggestion we struck off due to caliber, weight or simple aesthetics.
S&W M&P compact
M&P Shield 9mm
S&W M&P 80 40cal 15 +1shot
S&W Governor 410 2 1/2" shotshells, .45 ACP or .45 Colt
Sig Sauer P938
Sig Sauer .45ACP AKA P220 or P227
Sig Sauer p220 .45 caliber or Sig Sauer p226 9mm
Sig Sauer P250 sub compact
Sig Sauer P938
Beretta* PX4 Storm
Beretta 96 or px4 storm in .40 s&w
Taurus 38 five shot revolver with 2" barrel
Ruger LCR 4104 or 4130
Ruger SR9c or the SR40c
Guess the next step is to narrow this down some more at the gun stores for comfort and handling. Then off to the range if they have some demo's available. I'll admit to favoring the S&W M&P.40 and Sig Sauer .45ACP so far.

Thanks Brotherman, the Springfield XD Sub Compact .40 comes in at the edge of the weight requirements I'm looking for. Adding it to the list.

Yeah, caught me on the Glock's but they're so ugly... sorry. Not a hater though, just an aesthetic.
So you (from the video) suggest the Classic Schofield Top-Break Revolver? Actually that appeals to my old school sentiment but shy of wearing a western hip holster it's going to give me grief (I just know it.) Looks accurate as hell though.
I'm not a fan of Glocks either,
