    Everyone needs to keep in mind that for most people that are being shot at accuracy goes out the window. Your heart rate is up and so is your adrenaline... As you try to quickly get off shots and then back behind cover. The average criminal is not going to stand his ground nor is he going to take the time to practice with his gun. Most are more concerned with there illegal activities to practice shooting. They subscribe to the spray and pray mentality that if they fire enough shots sooner or later one will hit. Mike if you really want to see how accurate you are shoot in a IDPA match or a defensive pistol match. Its timed and you will see how well you shoot under pressure of the clock and with your heart pumping.

    I thought that guns that held more bullets were somehow more deadly than those that held less.

    I lived in Henderson for 4 years & this is not surprising. the town is known for failed education, drug abuse, & the numbers of people who milk the welfare system, this extends beyond race. Its a town that has become a joke

    40 shots and only 1 fatality? I bet they were holding their guns sideways. This is a great argument for more gun control. My definition of gun control is hitting your target. I practice regularly with my 5-shot snubbie S&W. If ever confronted by more than 5 punks I guess I'll be up a creek without a paddle. Oh, better practice a little more with my speedloader.
