My mother approached me and expressed her wishes to purchase a handgun for home defense/personal protection after my youngest sister moves on to college. I suggested a DA-revolver, most likely a .357 stoked with .38s, a women-only handgun class and a .410 shotgun for the house. What do you ladies think of this? Any information or suggestions, or even personal experience choosing would be helpful. My mom is 50 and has limited handgunning experience.
