Is there a better/cheaper caliber/round? I don't know a whole lot about ammo but I want it to be a good defense round without being to expensive to go out shooting.
Well, I won't speak of what's "better" but if you were to go with a Glock 22 it is chambered in .40 S&W which gives you a decent sized round and you can pick up a conversion barrel for about $90 and shoot 9mm out of it. If you do this you will also need a G 17 magazine ($25).

If cost of ammo is a concern this is a good way to go.

But if you really want a .45 then you should go with that.

Good luck!
