    Is it not the case that a round that does not pass through an object transfers 100% of its momentum into that object? Isn't that one of the objectives of firing upon a body, in addition to rapid exsanguination?

    Higher velocity (+p) helps with hollow point expansion, which maketh bigger holes in Ye Bad Guy.

    Really though, shot placement is key, moreso than any distinctions about caliber or bullet type. A 9mm through the "golden triangle" (the triangle formed by the brow-ridges and the chin) is better than a .454 Casul through the gut.

    Mmm, I see. Makes sense.

    Bigger holes in bad guys is good.

    For yourself, I'd say a small frame .38 revolver would be best. Decent enough calibre and they have a tendency not to jam. Plus if you need more than six shots, you are in serious bother.
    If you are talking about CCW you need to be able to conceal it. In order to do that you need to think about what you wear. And a large gun means a severe restriction on wardrobe choice.
    And forget about carrying it in your handbag. Ever try finding your keys quickly in one of those?

    I'd add that you should save your pennies for a box of frangibles (more expensive) if you are going to keep it loaded in the home. You can use cheaper rounds at the range during practice.

    But most importantly, don't trust anything you hear (even from the likes of me). Take a class in firearms safety and handling.
    Ask questions.

    I've already taken a class in firearms safety and handling (hunter's safety). I was only trying out that gun because it looked like fun.

    You are correct. I'm not familiar with that type as I'm not licensed for that calibre.

    Which is why I suggested same. It does the job and it's a good novice pistol.

    A 9mm would be a step up in effectiveness. There is a pricey but first-rate option, the Rohrbaugh R9, which is truly tiny and very lightweight but has six or seven rounds of 9mm. I consider the improvement in ballistics to be worth it, but the J-frame .38 would be a good "starter concealed-carry gun".
    That's the issue. I took from GND's post that she was starting on a budget.

    I carry a compact .40 on a daily basis, but that's just my personal preference.
    I don't even own one anymore.
