Thanks...I was thinking revolver too.<quoted text> HiPoint = get what you pay for. Ruger .22 I have never had one that I couldn't hit with..25 Can't hit and if you did it would just piss them off. 1911 = expensive but if you want to hit with it even more expensive. Home defense, easy use, low maintenance, good accuracy Taurus, Ruger or S&W medium to large frame revolver in .357. Drop the few extra dollars and get the stainless.
Probably the Taurus given it seemed to be the less expensive. I'll probably not opt for the stainless but they're nice.
