.38/.380/9mm instead of .357 for HD?

This thread has me thinking maybe for the purpose of a car gun or home defense gun a .357 just has too much muzzle flash & report.

I was looking at a .357 SP101 Ruger in 3" for the above purpose, but maybe I'd be better off (should I ever actually *need* it) with the .38 Spl version? Then we won't all be deaf afterwards too. Also easier to clean the cylinder out since I'd be shooting .38s out of a .357-length cylinder 90% of the time anyway.

Or, since semiautos tend to be quieter than revolvers, what about a compact 9mm or .380 for the purpose of car gun/HD? Better still than the .38 snub?
