Why does anybody need more than 7 bullets at a time? [View all]

There shouldn't be any rational need to have more than 7 bullets loaded in your gun at any one time.

What if you're facing multiple bad guys? You can't expect people to defend against 3-4 bad guys with just 7 bullets! - this seems to be the primary argument from gun nuts.

What if, indeed.

What if you're facing an onslaught of meth addicts trying to break into your house? What if you have to face an entire street gang? What if civilization collapses, and you have to take on a roving band of marauders? What if the zombie apocalypse happens, and you're faced with a yard full of walkers?

What if?

The problem is that you can always come up with a reason to rationalize whatever you want. But how often are people going to be faced with situations that require more than 7 bullets?
