What do y'all recommend and how much should I expect to spend?






And can I get it in fashionable colors?

I select a revolver for home defense as it's simple and fairly foolproof. No safety, etc to worry about in the heat of the moment, pull the trigger and it goes bang. At least 6 times. That should do it....

My personnel favorite is a S&W.357, But I like'm a little longer!
I want them to think they're getting away,Before I reach out and touch'em!~!!

I have to say Norm is correct ,ya have to be comfortable and somewhat of a decent shot .You can get something for $300 -$400 on up and up and up.Basic skills training is an absolute must.

The wife has a 38 5 shot. She's pretty proficient with it. There's a gun shop up here on Spout Springs that has a really good range and offers classes. The best thing to do once you decide on a pistol is to go to the range and practice with it.
