    Hey Mas,
    First, thanks for all the responses to us on GLOCK Talk. I was wandering if there would be any legal problems with shooting someone too many times. I'm thinking that in a life threatening situation, I could easily empty a large portion of a hi-cap magazine into an assailant. Could this be used against me later. Thanks again.

    Cops and armed citizens alike suffer from the public perception from movies that one shot is supposed to send the bad guy flying through the nearest plate glass window, so more than a couple of shots must be malicious overkill. It's refuted in court routinely through firearms instructors and officer-involved shooting investigators called to the stand by the defense.

    best,
    Mas
