I read a 9mm is the bare minimum for stopping someone breaking into your house.

$600.00 range will get you a Rock Island model 1911 45 cal. with two clips. They are entry level , but well made and easy to shoot accurately . The 45 provides excellent stopping power and is readily available anywhere ammo is sold.

The one you feel most comfortable with and can shoot the best.

I am partial to GLOCKs and 1911, and you can never go wrong with a good wheel gun in .357 magnum.

Regardless, if you go with the 9mm, 40SW, 45ACP, .357M, etc., get hollow points.

Remember practice, practice, practice...failure drills, reloading drills, drawing the weapon, etc.

A good light as well. Remember, if you can NOT see what you are shooting at, you don't know what you are shooting at.

Lots of black fri sales on now. Women usually don't handle large guns / calibers well.

This might be a good choice. Has an accessory rail to boot.

The DW has a 4in XD in 9mm. I have a 5in XD in 45 acp. DW shoots better groups with my 45. The 9mm with the right ammo will stop most bad guys. With 17 rounds in the clip You have plenty of shots. The Springfield XD series have a safety that the glocks dont have which IMHO is safer for those who are not experienced in hand guns.

22 cal. Use stinger Hollow points.

Lots of room on person for lots more ammo. Less weight, more shots in magazine. 22 ca has instant kill with head shot 90 percent of the time using stingers. 70 percent of the times with heart shot. Multiple shots to body will cause bleed out in about 10 min.

However if you're not a great shot and easily panic under pressure I would use a 40 cal, especially if they are wearing body armor.

No such thing exists.

Firearms are not magical devices.

If you are NOT willing to train, I suggest NOT arming yourself.

Or maybe, get a good 12 gauge shotgun, but still train for fuck sake. Your life and the lives of your family depends on it.

Re: What's the Best Hand Gun For Home Defense?
The best handgun is one you shoot well. Nobody can tell you what is best for you.

For me I only like one handgun. A 1911.

Large frame handguns with 5"+ barrels are easier to control and less intimidating to shoot.

The gun should fit your hand well. If you have small hands you'll probably enjoy a single stack mag.

Caliber is less important than many think. Too small is way better than too big in my opinion. A well handled .380 is much deadlier than a poorly handled 44 mag. And the 380 is much easier to handle well.

The famous 10 rules of a gunfighter has been taught for decades and every gun owner should read them every week when they go practice. That's every week when they practice.

Here they are: 1)Bring a gun. Preferably two guns. 2)Anybody worth shooting once is worth shooting twice. 3)Only hits count. 4)Shoot until the threat is eliminated. 5)If your shooting stance is perfect then you are probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly. 6) If you can choose what to bring to a gun fight, bring a friend with a long gun. 7)In ten years nobody will remember details about guns and calibers. They'll only remember who lived and who died. 8)If you are not shooting you should be running or reloading. 9)Accuracy is relative. Combat shooting is more about pucker factor than any inherent accuracy of a particular weapon. 10) Some day some one may kill you with your own gun, but they will have to beat you to death with it because it will be empty.

Never use a warning shot.

Let me correct you before you lose in court.

You shoot to stop the threat. When the threat is stopped, so do you.

Ah fuck, I was not going to post anymore. Kind of hard for me, because I like to help people.

This really is it.

For sure Glock because you can count on them working no matter what and tht is the most important thing in a life or death situation.

Use hollow points for home defense..so your shots don't penetrate walls and kill neighbors.

No competent person will advise anything but a center of mass shot. Aim for the trunk of the body. Don't shoot them in the knee cap or the head or any lame crap like that. No trainer anywhere has ever advised anyone to do that.

It's life and death. Life for one of you and death for the other. Aim for the part you can hit the easiest and which happens to be full of vital organs.

A 22? really?
