Hello, Chester, and welcome from Missouri to a great forum. Good people and info here!
Since you sound new to this handgun, self defense arena, I recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor in handgun use and self defense, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting.
