    A while ago I posted about dog attacks. I finally got an industrial pepper spray that shoots out 30 feet which makes me feel better and safer than one of those pepper spays as big as your thumb. Anyway I'm going to get a place to live that might be a little away from people so it might be smart for me to get a hand auto which isn't a bad idea if I take my dog for a walk in the boondocks because I have seen packs of dogs and I wouldn't trust pepper spray in that situation. But for home protection and something I could carry if need be isn't going to be a 380 or 45 but maybe something in-between. Any ideas?

    Home protection? Get yourself a 45 handgun if you can't get
    a Mossberg 590A1. As for a .380 they're wonderful for backups,
    or pocket carry. I got both.

    i wouldnt use a 380 on a dog. they are a lot more difficult to stop than people are.

    if you cant handle a 45 then 9mm.

    Was it really 1 shot, or did he just forget about the other shots he took.....

    .9mm JHP sounds like exactly what you want. Plenty lethal, manageable recoil, (relatively) economic and a high magazine capacity for roving packs of dogs.

    First of all, where exactly do you live, that roving packs of wild dogs are a major concern?
    Second, if I were trying to defend against a pack of anything, a shotgun would be my preferred weapon. I realize you can't carry a shotgun while walking your dog. That being said, possibly a Taurus Judge would be a reasonable choice. Loaded with buck shot, I can't think of a better carry weapon against a pack of moving predators. A single projectile weapon leaves far less margin of error, than a shot gun round.
    The down side is it is still a heavy, large hand gun.
