This story is a perfect example of why magazine capacity matters. Sure, most of the defensive gun uses we report on this site are over and done with just a few rounds (or no rounds fired at all). However, there are situations where you might find yourself in a battle for your life and every round in that magazine will count.
A homeowner in Georgia reportedly exchanged 30-40 shots with a home invader.
According to local media reports:
An attempted home burglary resulted in a shootout at a south Fulton County home that left a suspected burglar critically wounded Tuesday.
A homeowner on Diann Drive said burglars kicked in his front door after he declined to answer their incessant knocking around 11:45 a.m., Detective Melissa Parker told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The homeowner and the suspected burglars then exchanged what sounded like 40 shots to neighbors. The homeowner thought he wounded one suspect and police found a man “shot multiple times” in woods near the home, Parker said.
