Whatever you are most proficient with is the best choice, me personally the 40 Cal.

I hate "what if" type posts.

They make me appear that I have not thought of such in planning my self / home defense.

I would choose a .357 Magnum DA revolver. This is based on the cartridge and the reliability of the platform. Ideally it would be loaded with the 158gr lead SWC or HP SWC.

Now let me give you a choice. There's a hot tub party Friday night. You are given a choice of the following:

1. You can attend with Jessica Alba

or

2. You can attend with Janet Reno, Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Nancy Pelosi, and Michelle Obama.

Which option do you choose? Me? I'll go with quality over quantity every day.
