Be careful for what you're asking. Sounds like you know the person that you plan on "defending" yourself against. Because of this fact, in the courts, it could be seen as pre-meditated homicide.

As far as stopping power for self-defense, I recommend a pistol of the highest caliber that you can fire comfortably. My wife is happy with her 9 mm S & W automatic and her .357 magnum S & W revolver in which she shoots .38 caliber.

I recommend trying various calibers at a range until you have the feel for your level of comfort. Then, if you decide to purchase a pistol...practice often.

And if the authorities can't/wont help? then i guess a gun might really be your last (and best) chance at protecting yourself or your family. My wife, like CasinoManager's carries a .357 revolver loaded with 38 special bullets. revolvers are especially good for people who are not that familiar with guns because they are so much easier to use. most any shooting range will offer some sort of gun safety/shooting class for beginners. you should definitely look into something like that before you buy something.

To be truthfull i don't know if you need the power of a .357 but when you do buy a gun i would go with atleast a .40 cal. I own a glock 22 .40 and i love it nothing ever goes wrong with it and I would trust my life that it would do the trick. My friend was unlucky and took a round to the leg as a state worker and it took him down and he is about that weight. I agree with the person below i would go to a shooting range and learn to use your weapon. Learn to take it apart clean it and fire it. just be safe I am a personal security agent and I trust my life with the glock 22
