Vincent and Jeepejeep said it best. Like Wyatt Earp said, "Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything". It's mostly about shot placement and personal preference. However in extrme curcumstances such as being attacked by a bear or something then the cartridge is also an important factor.

Absolutely but the OP is talking about home defense.

Am I mistaken?

Anyways I just looked into the 357 SIG velocity capabilities and it seems like 357 SIG special application bullets are better than 357 Magnums. It has a velocity of 2,500 ft/s. That's plenty of stopping power, ain't it?
Glock has the G31 and G32 and they are ".357sig only" i carried my personal G31 as a deputy for 5 years and loved it..i still have it and still love it, it is well suited for duty,home defense, or CC.. Would be a great choice

What is the possibility that the bad guy is wearing body armor?

The .50ae DEagle is essentially a big 'ole fat wad of gun bling. It'd be an ideal choice for "Mr. T".

If it's all about home defense, buy a shotgun. If you prefer a HD handgun, buy a 357mag (revolver), 9mm, 45acp, 40sw, or 357sig. The G31 is a fine choice if you like Glocks. Just know that the 357sig is an expensive platform to learn on. It'll run you $20/box for range ammo, vs $10/box for 9mm. And 9mm is a very capable home defense choice.

Yeah a $10 difference is not really an issue.

Probably slim to none but then again, it's tough for me to think like a scumbag burgular so I really can't say for sure...perfect reason for you to practice headshots.

As one who routinely leaves 250rds at the range on a weekly basis...$10/box is $50 a week, $2500 a year. And there are 9mm defense rounds that'll come darn close to 357sig ballistics. Winchester's 127gr +p+ Ranger comes to mind (1250+fps).

Good point. If the BG is wearing armor and you hit them in the chest twice you are gonna distract them long enough to to put one through his brain box.
