I agree with you, Simon.
It's wise to have one full magazine in your weapon, and two full ones for backup.
Even with the lower capacity 13-round mags that the .45 has, you're still talking 40 rounds of .45 ACP firepower, including a round in the chamber.
With three mags of 9mm, you're talking 49 rounds, including one in the chamber.
If somebody lives in an area where they need to carry more than 40 or 49 rounds for self-protection, I would strenuously suggest they move to a safer neighborhood ASAP.
