Average gun exchange happens within 10ft of each other and last five seconds. In those five seconds, five shots are fired on average with 1 bullets striking. That's 20%. With a ten round mag, that's 2 hits over 10 seconds.
Here's hoping you hit the CNS!
You are right, and I agree with you. Which is why I said one does not always do the job. I would think you can get a higher hit percentage than that though at ten feet, if you are aiming at center mass..edit on 16-1-2013 by T4NG0 because: (no reason given)
Then you have to factor in fear, panic, and a possible moving target. Or 2 moving targets. So 1 bullet is not sufficient IMO.
It's so easy for us to sit here and say what would happen in a home invasion scenario where he/she would do this or that when in reality we haven't got a clue. To become a victim is a whole different ball game than hitting a bulls-eye target at the shooting range. Just saying....
