Can anyone provide a reason for more than 3 rounds? [View all]

Honestly, when hunting if you miss with your first shot, then you probably won't get a second chance.

I can see no reason for magazines that hold more than 3 rounds, except for target shooting. I can see it for target shooting in a controlled environment, but in the Real World why would it ever be necessary?

I don't care what kind of weapon you have, as long as the size of your mag is restricted.

I say 3. I'll compromise at 5. Beyond that, you're just looking to kill innocents. OK, I'll accept 6 for revolvers only, but no more than 3 for shotguns.

If anyone is using their weapon for the reasons they claim they are, why would they need more?
