The number of shots can easily be easily explained. This "engagement" clearly occurred in a 10-round mag limit state, and Mr. Huaco was clearly caught with only a single mag for his weapon, leaving him in a position where he did not wish to expend his last round EXCEPT in the most desperate of circumstances. A tacky purse embroidered with a dollar sign, while boorish in the extreme, would not be considered such an emergency. Rather than being castigated, Mr. Huaco should be commended for his superb tactical technique.
