Don't buy a small caliper gun ( 22,25,32,etc.). You want something that has stopping power. A S&W 380 semi-automatic is good. It is small, light weight but it will stop someone.

Oh, boy. You've stirred the caliber war hornets nest up now. I do carry a .380 regularly (.45 ACP occasionally), but expect the 9mm and .45 ACP contingents to soon show up here to deride the .380 as a mousegun.

Re your # 6

Would 22 long rifle hollow points.... in a Ruger semi...Each tip filled with mercury, do a nice job if four or five of these hit the target in extremely rapid succession?....Kind of a poor man's dum-dum?

I like the 12 gauge pump best but think the latter is a nice (probably illegal)more friendly alternative for a lady.
