Posted by afone1: Unless it is the gunfight at the OK corral, 8 should be fine.

Assume a hit rate that would be realistic for firing very rapidly during a stressful, quickly unfolding encounter with two fast-moving violent criminal actors. Assume that two hits are required to stop each one.
What is your probability of success with eight rounds?
Hint: the calculations have already been shown in this thread.
Yes, you may well be fine. Or not.
