Not "near zero" but 5% over all. How do you know which one you are gonna be in? I will still carry a reload, whether it is for when I think the fight is over or to stay in the fight. It is all well and good, but it takes little effort to carry a reload.Posted this in response to another question on related topic. . . but thought I'd share it as it's own info on the Carry board.
A guy did a statistical analysis of more than a thousand CIVILIAN shootings, and found that:
75% of all civilian shootings are resolved with 5 rounds or less
95% of civilian shootings are resolved with 8 rounds or less
With 10+1 in your gun, the chances you'll need more ammo to finish the fight are near zero.
Also, the Active Self Protection guy has stated that out of however many hundreds or thousands of shooting videos he's seen, he's NEVER ONCE seen anybody have to reload and keep fighting. Any reloads always happened after the fight wound up being over.
