for more info
I carry a 38. as a back up weapon good gun for close work. But more important is that not only you practice that your wife practices,and maybe even your child. Because you might not be home to protect your family.
Im not sure though that you would want a revolver for home defense though. If its a snubby then to be accurate you have to be relativley close.
Also thank about something with a saftey so if you do accidently pull that trigger hopefully you had the saftey on.
So what i suggest is go to the the gun store tell them your requirements. Hold and get the feel for some differnt types of guns and i suggest you do the same with your wife. Because what is nice for you might not be nice for her. In worst case trade the snubby in for a little bit on 2 guns or one.
I cant say this enough you need to practice your wife needs to practice and even your child if your so inclined to do so.
Nothing worse then somebody that is ignorant carrying a gun. I suggest you and your wife both take the ccw class.
good luck and good shooting
