I believe it was 4 shots in the head and one to the body. Surely one shot to the lower body is sufficient to stop anyone??
Off topic, but you surly have never been put into a situation of armed self defense against a subject that is on pcp.
One shot is certainly not enough, and always ALWAYS double tap
While I'm not trying to defend anyone's actions here, a little legal advice, if you are going to shoot someone in self defense, kill them, otherwise
you will likely be sued by the criminal. Most people are not trained combatants, you don't have 100% adrenaline and anxiety and shoot once then ask if
they are ok before you shoot again. Most people in a real self defense issue will expend many shots in a short amount of time.
It is, in fact, less suspicious when home intruders are shot multiple times by handguns, then a single shot. Rifle's do not have the same statistics,
as most cases of true self defense involving rifles involve 1-2 shots fired from a location that the intruder walked into.
IE most rifle defense cases involve hallways where the homeowner established a location of defense and only fired when the intruder encroached upon
it, where as most hand gun cases, involve the home owner actively engaging the assailant.
