So if I get a handgun I want it to have a chance of stopping the aforementioned creatures. If it will do that, a human should be no problem. I really don't care if it is a revolver or semi-auto.

What would you recommend?
You don't currently have a handgun, right? Or previous skill with a handgun??

Heavy recoiling rounds (particularly .44Mag) are POOR choices for beginners.

If you are a beginner, I'd recommend getting a .22LR and learning to shoot a handgun well, THEN go looking at a bigger, more powerful round.
(in normal times, that's the way to go. Currently with the shortages of everything, get something you can get ammo for, and go from there)

No handgun is going to stop anything if you don't hit it, and hit it in the RIGHT place.

Unless you are one of the rare "naturals" learning to shoot a handgun accurately takes practice and learning to do it FAST and accurate is toughest of all. Lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) are not impressed with what it says on the barrel or the size of the hole in the muzzle.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
