A smaller caliber handgun, if you are a proficient shooter, would serve as a better option or, my favorite, the shotgun. For a home defense weapon I would move away from a handgun, especially a large caliber one. If you are not an avid shooter, you may pose a larger threat to your environment and others in your household. One must remember, firing a handgun is different from firing a rifle. The reason I recommend a shotgun for home defense is that, in many cases, the sound of a pump action shotgun racking a shell speaks volumes to someone that is in your home and is not supposed to be there. Also, your point of aim isn’t as critical because of the spread pattern. Remember, always be aware of your background before you pull the trigger in any situation.
