The Next Time Someone Says A Civilian Doesn't Need More Than A 10-Round Magazine . . .

You can show him this video:

Video is courtesy of Scholl Security Group from their Facebook page.

Note that it took over a dozen shots on Mongo, and he kept on advancing towards the victim even after absorbing a dozen hits.

Now imagine you're the victim on the ground and the police aren't there and all you have is a firearm with a 10-shot or less capacity.

Still feel comfortable with a 5 or 6-shot J frame?  How about a 10-round mini-wonder-nine? You likely are going to come up quite a few rounds short.

Do you ever practice reloading a revolver or a small semi-auto while prone and fending off an advancing attacker with your offhand?  

I'd posit you will most likely be unable to reload the revolver and get it back into action in such an encounter, and probably also unlikely to get a spare magazine out and reloaded in such a situation, even though such a reload is easier than that for a revolver.

Well, you've got the rest of your life to figure it out.

Magazine capacity limits do nothing to stop a criminal, and instead hamper a law-abiding citizen's ability to effectively defend themselves.

You don't need a gun, until you NEED a gun, then you need it bad!

juvat: That's for sure, not to mention having enough gun.

Racist bastards shot a peaceful Black man.

He waz just Mindin' Hiz Own Bidness and they shot him.

Your point is well taken though.
I was taught to ""shoot 'til the target changes shape or catches fire" when stopping a threat.
It is why I practice reload and Malf drills constantly.

Concur with Juvat... STOP the threat! And there is NO guarantee that 1 or 5 or 10 shots WILL stop them.
