While I enjoy shooting them both. And if both are 100% reliable. I prefere a Semi Auto for reasons aleady mentioned.
Some people say that 5 or 6 rounds should
get the job done? But In my area, I've been hearing about too many instances where there have been 2 or 3 intrudors. So 13+ rounds makes me feel a little more comfortable. It's been posted and makes good sence. Ammo capacity is like insurance. You can never have enough.
