Hey guys, so I'm getting married in April, and my fiancé is pregnant. We live in a neighborhood where the cops are here a few times a week and we have helicopters flying over the house almost every night. She has had her car broken into and nothing important was stolen thank god. So my main question is which gun (semi or revolver) and which caliber would you folks recommend for me so I can feel safer in protecting my family or when I am not home, she will be able to defend herself? I have been to the range and have shot a couple of guns: Colt 1911, Glock 22 (40SW, I believe that is the correct model, was my grandfathers), and a S&W revolver (can't recall the model of it, but it shot 38 special). I feel comfortable with both 45 ACP and 40SW, as well as the 38. Since I have not shot a 357 or a 9mm, which I'm pretty sure I can easily handle the 9mm. I'm willing to spend a decent chunk of money if I need to. But if I can keep the price range pretty decent, the better. Also I am open to other makes besides Glock because of the no thumb safety. Any and all suggestions/opinions are welcome.
