    If you want a fun gun, we have talked about the Judge from Taurus. It shoots the 45 Colt and 410 slugs or shot shells. Its right around $600.

    Didn't you just say you wanted stopping power?

    Yeah, but I've read that the .22 to the head is unbelievably deadly because of its speed and the way it bounces around... I don't hunt, so my guns are only for self defense and defense of my family, and living in MA, I'm not going to shoot an intruder tin the chest where they may survive.. I'm going for head shots so they can't sue me... Would a .22 pistol provide this protection'?

    The bouncing around is a myth

    A 40 cal glock is a good choice for an auto. I'm a revolver man. I always have a 357 smith with me!

    Aiming solely for the head is not a way to defend yourself. Smaller target, less to hit. A heavier caliber to the chest will drop someone just as easily, and it's much easier to hit. If you're forced to shoot a hopped up PCP head in the chest with a .22 your just going to piss him off even more.

    I have a .41 Magnum Revolver that I inherited when my dad died. Fucker kicks like nobody's business.
