The guy is carrying 3 fifty round boxes worth of ammo around, on his person, at all times. I'll bet that gets old.

Also, the "I always carry 150 rounds on me" guy is a cop. Different mission, different rules, from the rest of us. Part of his job is to pursue criminals, which is what he was doing during the incident that caused him to embrace the "hail of 9mm lead" strategy.

If Joe Citizen were to follow that advice, and be involved in a self defense shooting, can you imagine what the legal review in the aftermath would be like?
