I have read so many stories of felons taking way more than two shots to go down. My planned practice is to rapidly shoot round after round until the felon is down and motionless. It may take more than 10 shots with my G17 9mm. Would this be defensible in court?

Whenever it takes more than one or two shots, those inimical toward your actions seem to make a big deal out of it. That can be explained in court, with expert testimony from the firearms side and the forensic pathology side.

You want to rethink the "down and motionless" though. If he's down with empty hands that he's waving to show you as he screams, "I give up," continuing to shoot would be a BIG problem...:cool:

The rule is, shoot until the assailant no longer presents a threat. If a couple in the chest haven't done it, it's probably time to consider alternate parts of his anatomy for point of aim instead of continuing with something that has failed.

Best,
Mas
