Engaging multiple targets with a 5 shot snub
At this point I am about 90 percent sure I am going to promote my SP101 to primary carry. I'm ordering a super tuck this weekend and as soon as I have the extra funds laying around I'll be ordering a set of CT laser grips for it. That being said I have a question about proper technique for engaging multiple bad guys with 5 rounds.
While we all hope that the bad guy(s) are turning tail and running the second we draw our piece we are smart enough to know that may not happen. Following is the way it plays out in my head. I am hoping someone with some actual training will tell me if I'm on the right track
1 BG - Fire 2 rounds and check the target
2 BG's - Fire 2 rounds at each BG and then check the targets. I would not immediately reload as I may need that 5th round to put into a bad guy.
3 BG's. This is where it get's hairy. Engaging three targets with any weapon is difficult. My inital though was 2-2-1. But then I am empty and have to reload. My second thought was 2-1-1 and check the targets leaving one round in reserve. My third thought was 1-1-1 and check the targets leaving 2 rounds in reserve if needed.
What's the proper technique?
