    I often refer to F.B.I both in studies and "PRACTICAL" F.B.I says 3 rounds but every F.B.I shoot out I know of like Bonnie/Clyde, Miami and a few others 1000`s of rounds were expended just from "Law Enforcement" so if the F.B.I says 3 and they send 1000`s Study that fact perhaps like the rest of us NO ONE HAS A CLUE........At current where/when I can 10+ rounds all times when challenged schools, work, church and anti gun establishments it is less smaller package deep concealment. With 2-3 extra mags just me but no one can answer that ridonkulous Question how many rounds is needed for personal defense? As many as it takes to get me clear or ends the threat.

    Personal scenarios five or six is probably enough. Instances of mass shooting you may be trapped in like say the theater in Colorado where the shooter may be 25 or 30 yards away, well 6 rounds may not be near enough. Plan for the worst, you can always take them home.

    You're welcome. Thing is no one can tell you how much YOU need to defend yourself or others. There is no real number to prove how many is "sufficient", seeing every situation is and WILL be different. So for someone to tell YOU how much is "acceptable" in THEIR thinking to protect YOUR (not theirs or even their family members) life is daunting to relish.

    My own personal opinion based on what I consider a realistic scenario for me, considering my lifestyle and based on the fact that I just like wheelguns. Ten rounds. In my imagined confrontation with an armed assailant, five rounds will get me and mine out of the fireing line, behind cover, or through the exit. Reload, and I have whatever I had left and five more to put more distance between me and my assailant and discourage pursuit. Now my imaginary scenario I'm getting the heck out of there and not sticking around. If my imagined scenario was that I'm going to save my fellow man by going toe to toe with someone bent on shooting up the place with an AK, and I'm going to pull my pistol and fight to the death, I need a lot more than ten rounds. Lucky for me, I only need ten.

    Just proves you can't predict or prepare for every single scenario. You just have to do the best you can which in most cases is carrying a gun and a spare mag......or 10.

    How many rounds you need depends on how good a shot you are.
