I am sure this has been batted about already but being a N00B here I thought I would put this question out.
Forgive me if this gets longer than I would prefer, sometimes I tend to babble, says the wife.
I recently purchased a 5 shot 2" 45 colt revolver because I got paranoid after my son says "dad do you really want to lose that .45 Colt Commander you carry, they will take it for at least 6 months".
I know a lot of folks like to carry a box of ammo on there hip and say never carry the minimum 4 that they say the FBI states is average in a personal shootout.
But I question that for no other reason than I have enough trouble keeping my pants up with all that weight of just that ultra-light .45.
In addition being if the distance is 5-10 feet, per the FBI, and I got to get that thing out, I like that little snubby now, it comes out VERY VERY quick.
And thanks to Uncle Sam trying his darndest to get me killed I know pretty much how I am going to react under fire and with a gun in my face.
So I say isn’t 5 more than enough?
I mean if I hit them with that big ole .45 slug, they're going down no matter where I hit them.
Besides if that thing goes off I would like to think that they will turn and run and other than a combat situation, the Boy Scout in me has an aversion to shooting a man in the back.
Just been on my mind so I thought I would ask, maybe point me to the original thread.
I thank you and please forgive the ramble.
