Way to go!

What this homeowner needs now is to upgrade to a Ruger LCR .357 magnum. Great self-defense revolver. Sweet glass-smooth trigger pull, light weight, highly accurate and deals a death blow using "personal defense" ammunition. Plus it can handle .38spl and +P loads as well as the magnum rounds. It is a good weapon for someone older or that may not be able to wield a semi-auto.
My wife has one and it's the best.
