Don't overthink it. 25 rounds is going to be plenty, as long as you're as proficient as possible. HOWEVER, I have read of shootings where the good guy ran a 7 or 8 shot 1911 dry and the fight wasn't over. I like at least 12 in the mag, with one spare mag. The 1911 is a classic but for the size and weight for it to only hold 8ish? Meh.
