Well guys look at it this way. I havn't had a flat on my car in something like 20 years, so should I haul around that extra weight and burn up more gas? On the average....

Or should I put in a fire alarm in my house as so few per 1000 homes get burned down?

Should I have health insurance since most people don't get so sick they would spend on medical care what the insurance cost for many years!

Ok, the chances of needing a weapon to defend your self are actually low. The chance you will have to actually fire the weapon is lower still. And the chance you will have to fire LOTS of ammo very remote. But as for how far you need to prepare.... that's up to you.

I drew the line with my Glock 27 (11 rounds), spare mag (10 rounds) and Centinial .38 (5 rounds.) Plus lots and lots of H2H training (it's my avocation.) Will I need it? Probably not. Will it be enough? I sure hope so!
