    I don't carry anything that has malfunctioned, because there is a reason it did. If you can't trust a weapon, don't carry it. Only use magazines that have never been in a gun when it malfunctioned. Once that happens, I mark them and only use them for practice. They are one of the most common causes of feeding problems, second only to limp-wristing.

    Backup guns are OK, but they're not a cure for an unreliable primary.

    Understand the context of an extreme close quarters gun fight is that your gun maybe run perfect until you make a contact shot or someone has a grip on the gun and makes it malfunction. Then it doesn't matter how reliable it has been. If you cannot immediately clear it, beat him with it, just don't let him have it. If you feel that you are going to lose control of the gun, then dropping the magazine and chunking the gun may be an option. This is a good reason to carry a back up gun or a good fixed blade knife.

    Thats #1 self defence for anyone in a fight(so long as ur attacker is a dude). You bet your a$$ I am going to kick, bite, poke, jab, rip, tear, etc. I am fighting for my life...im not worried about a "low blow" or being "unfair".

    I was always told, the only rules come with ropes, and neutral corners.
    If you don't see those.... anything goes

    Yep, any gun will make a good bludgeon when it is run dry. If you can't get the job done with the bullets, beat 'em with the gun.

    He may not worry about bullets, but even Superman flinches if you throw a gun at him....

    The mag itself is a bludgeon weapon especially if loaded with a full and heavy set of ammunition.
    The gun itself empty with no rounds is a functional bludgeon as well.

    I wouldn't give up nor throw anything away untill either the attacker(s) is stopped or I am dead.

    Being disabled and a woman, it is the thought of malfunction that keeps me carrying a revolver. Hubby wants to have me carry a semi auto, but the thought that it might malfuncton bothers me. Even without a weapon, I am not the type to give up without a fight, but I am limited. I know I only have 5 shots with my revolver, but I know it will work when I need it.

    Thankyou all for your responses. The wife unit will hate me now as I think I must go buy a revolver for a bug... (she got the last gun so now i guess it's my turn anyway)
    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.
