Why do people keep assuming that having capacity automatically implies using capacity?
If I have 8+1 (I usually carry a 1911) plus two 8rd spares, but only need to fire one shot, I can do that.
If I have 5 (my 442) but need to fire 10, I am out of luck.
That about sums it up.
I've been in a shooting where all I had was a J frame with no reload. It was enough.
Does that mean 5 is enough?
