    Good home defense calibers: 9mm, .40S&W, .45acp, 10mm, +p.38special, .357magnum, .41magnum, .44magnum/.44special. Keep in mind that some of these come in loads that are more suitable for hunting than defense use, and can therefore be difficult to handle by some. IOW a full-house .44 mag would not be a good choice, but a low-level load or using .44special is fine.

    As for brands - take a look at Beretta, Glock, Walther, Browning, Steyr, Sig Sauer, H&K, CZ, Smith&Wesson, Ruger, Colt, Springfield, Kahr, FN, Kimber.

    Right now, your questions really should be where to get training (check with your local gunshop and the NRA site). Once you have fired many different types of handguns at your local range, then you will be able to answer these types of questions yourself. After all, the best handgun for you is the one that you shoot the best, and only you can tell what handgun you can fire better than others, and what fits your hand better than others.

    are you looking for strictly home defense? many, many people will suggest a shotgun is the best weapon for home defense, loaded with some buckshot or maybe a slug

    A shotgun is good for static defense, but if you have to move around or use another hand to call 911 or hold a flashlight, then a handgun is the better choice, IMO.
