I always shoot 6 or 7 rounds as fast as I can. so really double tap is senseless. If I ever have to defend myself with my 380 I will unload.
I thinks it's helpful to practice both but I don't plan on a mag dump from the start. just be ready for whatever the situation brings I suppose. I practice a lot of 2 and 3 rapid shots mostly. I like to hit one target as quick as I can twice then get an accurate shot on a second target (preferably at a different distance) for a third shot.
You guys got me thinking. Yes double taps are better than singles. Triples are better than doubles. But taking on three bad guys with seven .380 rounds?
I'd use the first magazine to keep their heads down while I find some cover. The second mag for some well placed opportunities when their heads pop up.
One round in each of the first two bad guys, two in the third BG, then come back with a second round in BG's one and two, or two and one. Each BG is hit once in the shortest time period, with follow-ups with your remaining rounds with one round left over for whom ever's still wiggling.
Double tap actually makes great sense, even with multiple BGs. I've had friends involved in DGU situations with multiple miscreants, and when the first guy starting leaking that influenced the others to cut and run, in every situation I've had close knowledge of. Granted, these were crime-of-opportunity situations, not personally targeted. If someone is coming after you for revenge etc., that would probably change the dynamics significantly, as would the effect of certain drugs. But, in general, I think that an effective action against the most immediate threat (nearest/biggest BG) will probably bring about the desired result: a removal of the overall danger.
Just based on what friends have experienced...
Double tap....sure! It needs to become a motor skill....with a muscle memory aspect also. I end up every shoot with double tap practice, then head shot. We are creatures of habit...and this one might just save my life.
Double taps with Elsie is not very effective for me past 10 feet. My sr9 is another story.
