Welcome from So Cal!
Kind of a unique county down here and it is mostly due to one man, our Sheriff. I suppose those of us that vote for him help too.

Welcome from South Carolina...
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Hello, TopCat, and welcome from Missouri to a great forum. Good people and info here!
Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, consider taking some good self defense handgun classes when you get your weapon. I also 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. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up. Very good instructional information from an expert, and free.
Here is a very good technical review of self defense ammo, for when you are ready to consider this:
