My next gun is going to be somewhere in the 5-7 round range. Currently I carry a 19 and don't ever feel like I don't have enough ammo, except of course when I leave it at home, which happens quite often. If I get a 5 round, it will be the new xds 45, otherwise it will be one of the various 6 or 7 round 9mm slims. Either way, it doesn't feel like much ammo. I think I would be comfortable taking on one guy with 5 rounds, (comfortable being a relative term) but 2 guys? Or 3? And what happens when you run out? Before you shot at them, they may have just grabbed your wallet and roughed you up, but now that you shot at them, they are gonna curb stomp you. So what is your plan?
