The second BG booked out the door, but the point I'm making is that multiple
attackers in a robbery situation is more and more common. IMHO, I would not
be comfortable with only 7 rounds on hand. YMMV.

Very true! 6 or 7 rounds is not what I would want to have facing multiple attackers. Always best to have a spare mag.

Good full-size 9mm pistols like the M&P or G17 hold 17 rounds in their magazines and would be much better for a multiple attacker situation.

My wife carries her Walther PPS M2 LE 8+1 with a 7 round spare mag. I carry my S&W M&P M2.0 9mm 5inch 16+1 with two 16 round spares. Works for us.

To update an old saying: "you can never be too thin, too rich, or have too much ammo." :-)

Arms discourage and keep the invader in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property...
Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of them.

Unless you're on fire, or drowning. ;-)
