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." :-)

The worst government is also the most moral.
One composed of cynics is often very tolerant and humane.
But when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression.

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