.44 Mag will have more energy than .357 mag, but will it make a difference? I doubt it, both are just fine. But .357 gives you either a smaller frame or more ammunition...

Whatever you get take the time to get the right ammo for home defense. You don't want a bullet that will go through your walls all the way through your house and maybe even next door.

I would like a powerful handgun that is reliable and durable. I would like to stay around the 250 dollar range but would be willing to spend a little more if it made alot of difference. I dont want a bb gun, I want one with some nice stopping power behind it. I will mainly be using it at the range but in case of a home intrusion I would want one shot to be enough to stop them from harming my family. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am well trained in firing guns but not knowledgeable at all as far as caliber, brand etc. Thanks alot in advance.
