Hey Mas,
Which of these two calibers would you choose for a home defense weapon. Looking at getting one of these two in a Glock. Also, would you go with the 3rd or 4th gen model. Thanks for any help.

I'd be comfortable with either one. With a home defense weapon, remember it's a "pool weapon" that might be used by others in the household. If that's the case in your situation, you & they want to find what works best for the least capable shooter.

In .40, I'm comfortable with either 3rd or 4th Generation. In .45, the Gen4 G37 is quite nice -- Florida Highway Patrol is delighted with theirs -- and the Gen4 G21 feels great but I haven't shot it yet.
