So the micro Uzi under the car seat was a tad too much?

5 shots enough? Maybe. I don't know what the rated stopping power of a +P round is, but I would guess it is significantly better than a 9mm or .380. Given that, you would need fewer shots on average to stop an attack.

But don't give up on reloading. Speedloaders are wonderful. A friend of mine shoots competition against police regularly (He gets invited by the chiefs to show the rank and file how it should be done.) He shoots a .38 to their glocks. He often wins even though he has to reload more, in part because a 9mm won't always knock a steel "popper" down at long range. And of course accuracy counts.
