    Some good choices for home defense. If you want a .410 you might as well go with the Tarus Judge revolver that shoots either the .410 or a .45 long colt. But again with recoil and defense you would want atleast a 20ga. I would suggest either a Remmington or a Mossberg. Handguns are more concealable then a shotgun so if you want to be able to hide the gun easier then look into double action revolver or semi pistol in atleast .38. Stopping power comes to my mind when talking about defense so shotgun would be best but for concealablity go with a full size pistol to help with recoil. There really isn't much recoil to the .38 special so she should be able to handle it. Most importantly though is to have her go with and see if she likes the feel of the gun. You then take to the range to get her used to firing the gun. If you yourself have multi guns in multi cal then take her with you to the range to see what she can handle. If you do go with a any handgun though for selfdefense you get her HP rounds for better stopping power.


    My thoughts:

    1. If you're going to use a Judge for self defense, shoot the guy with a .45 colt. If you're going to shoot a guy with a .45 colt, there's better possible choices out there with a true .45 colt cylinder (less "jump" to the barrel improving accuracy).

    2. Concealment is not an issue in one's own home. Maneuverability for tight corners and hallways can be. Concealment only comes into play for taking it with you outside the house (such as CCW permits). A home owner with small corridors may want to consider a handgun anyway due to the constraints of the home. A shotgun is great for staying put and unleashing hell when cornered, it's not the best for clearing tight corners.

    3. I'd have her check and see. She may prefer the shorter trigger pull of a Glock or XD than the full double action of a revolver. You never train someone to fire single action for self-defense on a DA gun (exception going to DA/SA handguns, but I was getting at the idea of manually cocking the hammer), and a full DA pull is rather long.

    4. Hollow Points do not have more "stopping power." They're just more efficient with their power. Their advantage is expansion in the body, creating a slightly larger wound channel and (more importantly) stopping the bullet from overpenetrating, keeping all energy transferred in the target instead of losing a lot of it to an overpenetration shot.



    1)The Judge commant was suppose to be sarcastic. I know there are alot better choices out there.
    2)The concealment thing is not just for going out. If you have small children running around the house you want to be able to hide the gun from them. Not to mention if someone breaks into your house while you are away you don't want them to find your gun and take it.
    3)As I also said you have to take her to the shooting range with the gun to see if she likes it. Have her try a DA revolver and a semi-auto pistol.
    4)Since HP are more efficent with their power it in a way adds to the stopping power. Since the bullet expands after entering it creates a bigger and stronger shockwave giving it a bit more stopping power.

    Me personally would perfer a shotgun over a pistol for home defense. With a shotgun you don't have worry too much about aiming because for home defense you get buck shot.

    I'd have to agree with druid and marksman here and say if you have to ask if it's ok you should take it to a professional who knows what to look for and would know better then any of us who can't see the bow personally and up close. I'd go by the rule of if you don't know then get it looked at by a proffesional when it comes to safety.
  4. In Topic: What is your favorite music genre?

    23 November 2009 - 01:24 AM

    Well I listen to just about everything but rap. I like country music but that's my taste. Nothing in my opion though is better (exspecially going into battle) then Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries.

    That's why man created rocket launchers. It would be more of a challenge to stay alive with the different mutations.
