    When carrying the following:

    380 = 14
    9mm = 12
    45 = 8

    Don't figure I will need any more than those and probably not even close to those in reality.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    You do realize that the single largest cause of a malfuntion (by a HUGE margin) is a magazine failure? I dont carry extra mags for the ammo, but for the reliability. Even when just running out - I have a pocket mag holder that gets one stuck in it....

    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
