are you willing to consider shotguns??? if so, consider the Remington 870 home defense or the Stoeger Coach.

Nothing quite like the sound of a pump shotgun. If I was breaking in the sound alone would make me stop.

I have and use both the Kimber and Glock, the .45 has the best knockout power but it is subsonic. The .40 is supersonic and what most police departments are going to because the .45 is a handful. Will other members of your household be using these? That would also be a consideration, I started my wife off with a .38 S&W Model 15 revolver very easy to use and shoot. We gave her the Kimber Custom II for Mothers Day and she can now out shoot everyone with the .45. When I say everyone I mean Marines, ex-Marines police officers and everyone else at the range. When picking ammo use what your local PD uses. I use Hydro-Shock hollow points, Police only use their weapons to stop not kill, my attorney told me to do that because if you use some exotic ammo you meant to kill who you were shooting at not stop them.

True that! Not to mention it doesn't carry near the liability due to over penetration. Plus you don't have to be terribly accurate to make an impression..

I vote shotgun.

i am not real big on guns but have been thinking of getting a shot gun, maybe a stainless steel defender, put a slug in one of those and there is much you wouldnt stop.
i would hardly ever use it but would like to have one just in case.
