    You should have enough “spare” handguns that you should not have to rent.
    Why is your safe so empty?;)

    I don't understand gun owners that argue how many rounds you should have on you at all times, yet have never had to use one in defense, let alone many.

    Can't recall who it was know, but one of the famous gunfighters always said "It is not the first shot that wins the gunfight, it is the first hit."

    Everyone has to weigh the probabilities and find their comfort point with regards to how many rounds. Otherwise, we would all be lugging drum mags around. And several guns as well.

    Carry with what makes you comfortable. I carry to keep me out of bad situations, not to continue a bad situation. If I felt I was in an area where I need an arsenal, I'll be asking myself what the hell I was doing there in the first place.

    While I agree, are you saying bad things can't happen in "good" places?

    Not at all, but one can't be totally prepared for every situation that can possibly come. Although I do carry an extra magazine (at times it's in my car), I would look to get out of a shootout rather than maintain one.

    So do you carry a gun that only has 2 or 3 rounds in it?

    Just because one guy was able to drop a bad guy with one shot, doesn't mean that will always happen.

    We are talking about pistols here, there are LOTS of cases where people take 4 or 5, even more COM hits and keep on trucking

    Ask any halfway decent instructor why they don't teach students to just pop a target 1 or 2 times.


    Stop being such a fudd
