Re: New Pistol for Home Defense???
This might seem out of the standard, but besides a short barreled shotgun, for home defense, I use a Ruger Blackhawk. with 4 5/8 barrel 44 mag with 44 special loaded. Simple, nothing to break, easy to hold, shoot, clean, wife loves shooting it, was REAL easy for her to learn to shoot accurately. Never saw a reason for large cap guns for home defense. The Ruger also is my carry gun when hunting out west where there are critters that bite. Kills dear and bear with authority and is just plain fun to shoot,,,would also recommend the same gun in 45 colt caliber. Besides, not too many critters get up with 44 or 45 cal holes in em, so you only usually need 1 shot!!!
