Magazine limits? Ask this guy.

Why one cop carries 145 rounds of ammo on the job

This cop's experience and the 56 SECOND shootout that ensued would make a GREAT TV movie but the anti-gun left would never produce it.

I'd quote the article but it's all riveting and is a quick read.
Please note that this article is o a site devoted to LEOs so it's obvious to me that cops DO understand that magazine limits aren't a good thing.

Old military pilot saying: "The only time you have too much ammunition or fuel is when you are on fire."

Another takeaway from the article was the Dr.'s willingness to condemn.

So much about the .45 legends? Cop switched from .45 to 9mm.

Isn't quite the pithy saying, but one soldier essentially once told me that you always have to too much ammo when you you have to carry it, and never have enough when you have to use it.

Exactly!
From the article:
“At one point Gramins heard a doctor exclaim, “We may as well stop. Every bag of blood we give him ends up on the floor. This guy’s like Swiss cheese. Why’d that cop have to shoot him so many times!”

Answer:
“Gramins thought, “He just tried to kill me! Where’s that part of it?””

Not to mention the guy did not stop until the last 3.

As to the .45 vs. 9 mm...in this case it boils down more to the fitness and determination of the offender. The big FBI Miami Shootout had two such determined bad guys that each had more than one lethal wound. The point made in this article about giving CNS incapacitation against offenders this motivated a try is good advice. The Mozambique drill originated with two chest shots that showed no immediate effect. Fortunately, the third round hit the spine and ended the threat.

The only problem I see with the Mozambique drill for returning fire is that, if you are already under fire, you need to be on the move and quickly or you're dead. Its really hard to pull off a head shot while on the move.

That said, if you are close enough to get the shot off, the T zone is an instant off switch.

I wouldn't adhere to the drill. If opportunity presented itself, then take that shot.
