It’s probably safe to say that most readers are convinced they must have 30 or more rounds in a magazine for effective self-defense, at home or away. The reasoning seems to be that “you never know how big the threat is, and changing magazines can get you killed.” Pretty logical, on its face….
But a lot of the same people use the argument that low capacity magazines used by people bent on “mass killings” aren’t a limiting factor because magazine changes can be so quick, no one has time to tackle and disable the shooter. Doesn’t the speed of reload point out that high capacity magazines aren’t really necessary for self-defense?
