If the gun is for protection then I would go with a double action and a lot smaller then a large frame revolver.You need to be able to shoot fast and keep your senses about you. Try shooting a 44 at night with no ear protection in your house and see how that works!
My dad is getting a revolver for home protection as well as protection on our long hikes and fishing trips. He wants a Colt but they are 1300 dollars. Someone who works with him has a 6 1/2 M-29 44 smith and wesson they want to get rid of. They are willing to sell it for around 500-600 dollars. Should my dad wait and save up for the colt 45 or buy the smith and wesson?

Perfectly put. Like the guy last year that had to kill the brown bear with his 1911. You tell that bear it won't work. Of the 3,000 plus members here, how many have ever actually had a confrontation in their home? Heck, how many just know anybody that has had one. Way, way too much overthinking. I have always said that your upland shotgun and standard sidearm are plenty. Why is it you can aim a full barreled shotgun in the field and not hit bushes or trees, but we can't use it in a house with walls? The "tactical" fad is out of control. If you hear glass break in the middle of the night, are you going to get you tactical vest out of the closet, put it on, look for your special home defense handgun among the others, and go see what's wrong? NO! Your gonna grab old faithful by you in bed and go see what's up. Odds are that even if you have to shoot, 1 shot and they're fleeing. Remember this, even the cops, who expect trouble when you report someone in your house, only carry one standard pistol and an extra mag.
The best gun to use for home defense is one you can shoot effectively. Whatever it is.I think people create these scenerios in their mind like they are part of some kind of special armed forces or something. Arm yourself with something you are comfortable using...then hope and pray you never have to use it.
