But being in a real firefight will normally be within 10 feet. So my point is 10 rounds is more then enough. And my comment was directed to those who would dismiss the HK45 right off the bat due to the 10 round mag limit.
If you can't put down an attacker with 10 shots inside 10 feet or less.....yes, you need more practice. No disrespect meant to anyone.
Yep NO 1 rule of a gun fight is to have one that is a given...
If you are letting the BG's (on the street they are like dogs and tend to travel in packs) get within 10' then there is no gun fight, you are now bleeding out or dead...
Police shoot at 10', why because they encounter all kinds of creeps and criminals at traffic stops.
However we have to pay attention, and maintain our 21' minimum safety rule. I don't care if it involves crossing the street, ducking into a store, going a different direction but pay attention and never, and I repeat never let a perp inside your radius, they can knife you, and you will die long before you can even use the 2-3 second time it takes most realize they are in deep poo and draw....
Muscle memory and practice, and I would like to encourage everyone to bit the bullet, spend the $$$ which is often enough to buy a nice hand gun, but spend it for some advanced training, and then practice for that is how you will react in a crisis...
Be safe it is you and your loved ones lives on the line out there so practice!!
