Well Glocker, you get your house breakers and of cause your bigger ‘professional’ groups that rob shopping centres with AK47 type rifles. My opinion is that the common house breaker shoots in a direction to kill – but do not shoot that well and they run as soon as the first shot goes off. I’ve been in the security industry for about ten years. Most shopping centre robberies were over within 3 minutes. Any shootouts if any, over within two minutes. You get your hard-core criminals that rob and kill often, but they are the calm and in control ones. They are not like the nervous “unprofessional” criminal that is trigger happy.
The police and armed operatives may be doing mag chances. The general house breaker does not even carry his weapon in a holster never mind an extra mag.
