I don't know how to post a multiple choice question so I'll limit it to the major choices. My concern is two things.
The first is noise in a bedroom.
The second is do you use a different gun in winter when people are wearing heavier clothes ( like Carharts) vs what people wear in the summer. Heavier clothing is an issue in the northern states.
I believe most people use
38 Special
357 Magnum
44 Special
9mm
40 S&W
45 ACP

Start with these then if you use something else, say so. I've never shot in a house room, but shot on a range with the sides open but a metal roof and that was bad enough.

Thanks for the input.

M1 carbine, and 5" 1911. The .45ACP, being a low-pressure round (compared to 9mm and .357, etc.) is "relatively" quiet.

My own testing with a decibel meter showed me that the M1 carbine is similar in sound level to the 1911. (Note that this is NOT true when the .30 carbine round is fired in a shorter barrel such as the Ruger Blackhawk.)

This old 1918 Warhorse. It fought a few wars and probably has at least one more fight left in it if needed :)
