Where speed of presentation=what and where it's carried
I don't see it as either or so much but to answer the question, for an average guy like me it probably has the edge in importance over capacity. If someone puts holes in my head before I can get my hi cap Glock into service I'm dead as 6 pounds of dead flounder.
We're not interested in what BG/s think, we're interested in what ccw'er who carry concealed believe, where trade offs are discussed between speed of presentation and ammo capacityPersonally I don't think the average bad guy takes into consideration what particular weapon has what capacity.
Exactly why I've got the NAA PUG 22mag "palmed" when moving through parking lots.That was fast!
IMHO, it's a far more important consideration than capacity or caliber, and even more so for civilian CC'ers than for police. If I ever have to shoot someone out in public, it will only happen because I'm reacting to a lethal threat that they're already presenting. I'm necessarily behind the curve, and would need to catch up.
Since the goal is not to kill the attacker, but rather to avoid receiving a grievous wound myself, I'd suggest that it's better to carry whatever one can draw and hit with the most quickly, even if it's low capacity or small caliber. It's said that a hit with a .22 beats a miss with a .45. I'd also say that a hit with a .22 a quarter-second before getting shot, beats a hit with a .45 a quarter-second after, even if that's followed by 12 more hits with a .45.
I'm having trouble understanding this question. Can you give an example or rephrase it?We're not interested in what BG/s think, we're interested in what ccw'er who carry concealed believe, where trade offs are discussed between speed of presentation and ammo capacity
