yeah maybe a good movie if this occurred in an open parking lot and all of the BGs are armed. you just never know what your surroundings might be. Why not just be a little more prepared with an extra mag or BUG?PW said:I admire your optimism!

Getting jumped by 10 gang bangers, being able to shoot all 10 before they get you, with a quick stop for a reload in the middle, sounds like a good Hollywood movie to me.
Still not quite sure where you get the idea that I am uncomfortable carrying.... I may be a rookie, but I don't consider myself uncomfortable.
truthfully 95% of the time i carry 12 rounds of .40 the other 5% i carry a backup mag....but i recall exactly what jeff mentioned regarding the off duty LEO at trolley square said. i don't know if he ran out of ammo, but i know he was very concerned about having enough. When i remember this it does make me a little uneasy about my limited ammo. i do have an extra mag in the glove box, and an extra one at work now. i *try* to carry an extra one with me too, i just hate extra stuff in my pockets and until i can get an IWB mag holder i can't carry one on my belt.
i have a friend who carries an XD .40 with only 10 rounds (instead of the 12 it can hold) because "if he can't get 'it' done with 10 rounds, then he wouldn't make it anyway". i think he is silly.
