    About the same here, except I have some speed loaders. I want to learn how to hide them better. I don't care for strip loaders.

    Most gun fights are three rounds or less at least that's what I've been told. I don't know the modern stats.

    Most of us will never encounter such a situation. I don't plan to work around it. You might... we each have to weigh our risks and act accordingly.


    Might as well carry a magnum revolver or 10mm.


    10mm Hornady 180 gr XTP 5" barrel

    Muzzle 1275 650
    50 yard 1146 525
    100yrd 1052 443

    At 100 yards you're beating some 40 S&W rounds. 10mm recoil is manageable.


    44 Magnum 7.5" barrel

    Muzzle 1350 971
    50 yd 1231 807
    100yd 1134 685

    A 9mm is a fine round, so is a 357 magnum or 38 +P.
