When it comes to handguns for self-defense at home, one popular item is the Smith and Wesson Model 640 Revolver. This J frame revolver underwent many iterations before its final model was released in the market. It was first designed in the early 90s as a .38 caliber revolver with 2 or 3-inch barrel. The latter was pulled out after 3 years.

After that, a much newer model was made that fired 9 mm Parabellum using moon clips and it was named the S&W Model 940. Six years after, it was once again pulled out. In 1996, the .38 caliber was changed to .357 Magnums and its barrel was lengthened to around 2.125 inches. In all of these versions, revolvers make use of stainless steel frames, barrel, cylinder, and each has a shrouded hammer and a dual action only operation.

Another thing of concern with regards to getting a handgun to protect your family is the minimal caliber needed to neutralize thieves. Women, which are normally an average citizen, not really trained in such kind of operation, should be given a caliber that she can fire easily and steadily. This is a case by case basis and must be practiced or tried.
