    If an attacker is down and out of the fight, that is a one shot stop. A one shot stop does not necessarily require that the attacker be terminated. We are talking about self-defense. If you are perceived to have crossed the line to start executing "judgement" upon your attacker, you may well find yourself being prosecuted. Don't put yourself in a prosecutable situation, but by all means protect yourself.

    Happy to live in a "Castle Doctrine" state.

I have read you must make the first shot count in a small concealed 357 because the recoil will knock you off Target for a followup shot. It really doesn't mean much if you can't hit the Target because the gun kicks so much due to the shooter flinching. My dad used a 22 to drop 1500 lb beef cattle. Shot placement is everything.
    While civilians are not expected to get in gun fights (you'd get in trouble even if you are in the right), the police can expect to get in gun fights. A gun fight might easily require more than 6 rounds, so an automatic makes more sense. It carries more ammo and reloads much quicker than a revolver.

    Just a note: Coonan came out with this gun years ago and went bankrupt. They are re-introducing the gun. There was neve anything wrong with the weapon, but you should know the history of the manufacturer.
