I would ask "defense against what?" I think that if the guns are the same platform , I would like the .44. I would also consider easy access to ammo, in that case .357 gets the nod, as .44 spl is not readily available in my area. John

Well, if you're talkin' something like this, I'd say in the Awesomely cool category they score about a 9.3 on the KG59 scale. However, and I am sure you know this, they ain't small and SA ain't the best option for SD. OK, it's been said, on with the show
Something like this is way cool...Cimarron Thunderer with Birds-head Grips and 3.5" barrel length.
BTW, recoil is somewhat of a help with SA revolvers...

Single or Double Action, the answer is .44 Special. Yes, I reload for this caliber, but if limited to factory ammo, I could find enough Buffalo Bore ammo to stand against the forces of evil.

the main thing is being able to handle your weapon and to be able to re-aquire your target quickly. if it's kinda close say 7 to 15 yards or so, i would go with the .357 even if it were closer than that. but if you can handle the .44's recoil, suture self.
