Unloading a clip is one thing but, you should train to shoot multiple rounds for self defense. You should also train for unholstering your weapon from your concealed location.

It is worse to shoot and injure someone than to shoot and kill them.
Cashtown is correct. In fact, the accuracy will help you in criminal and civil court instead of harming you.

Well, it could under some circumstances but, you would of had to unloaded the clip in someones head from 20 yards away or something. At that point it would hurt your credibility towards your self defense case because obviously you are a marksman and obviously the supposed threat was outside the range of what would be considered harmful.

:laughing6 :laughing6 Ummmmm. I would never go for a head shot at 20 yards anyway. Shooting someone in the occular cavity is a very last resort kinda thing, as in failure to neutralize shots or hostage shots. I was always taught to shoot at the biggest area possible. This means center of mass. Because your body is in fight or flight mode in this situation, your skills / IQ drops 50%, so your marksmanship will help you. I would be more worried about collateral damage (other people or property that has been shot because you missed the bad guy) than worry about credibility in court because I'm a marksman.
And BTW, it's a magazine, not a clip. Not to be an jerk towards you, but there are so many out there who claims to be a firearm enthusiast, but can't even get the simple terms right. Just bugs the out of me.

Yeah, it was meant to be lite hearted. I doubt your ability to shoot accurately will matter much when defending your life.
