It's been pretty much business as usual, apart from watching the new boss take 24 shots of Tequila in a five hour night, and still have his silenced (apparently illegal) Macfucking10 (also apparently illegal) with the disturbingly long magazine (which in a result to surprise no-one could end up being not only legal, but thought of as good practice), to "protect" us (the business, no, the money in the safe) with. His pistol whatever the fuck it was, was enough.

Caliber .45ACP, 9x19mm Luger/Para (.380ACP a.k.a. 9x17mm Short for M-11)
Rate of fire 1100 rounds per minute (1600 rpm for MAC-11 in .380)
Magazine capacity 30 , 32 rounds
Effective range 25 meters

That's empty inside 1.75 seconds, and sod knows where all but the first two rounds went. At inside-the-back-room ranges, it'll make an unholy mess of the one target it hits (or do a respectable job on four or five with a cool ehad and some good trigger discipline) but if you're using one of them the only person you can see but probably can't accidentally hit is yourself.

At 25m, I reckon I could hit three targets and miss the innocents between them with a 9mm Browning pretty fast, and I wouldn't want to try with one of those things.

That stuff's potentially fatal a long way beyond 25m, though, and 9mm especially remains lethal 25m the far side of the first person it hits. Unless he's paying $3.20 a shot in 9mm or $3.75 a shot in .45 for frangibles, that's not a good thing to use in a crowded bar or street or any populated area.

That's not a self- or home- or any other kind of -defence weapon. That's gang warfare cowboy gottahavvabiggun culture.

Having one is a bit like running the country. Anyone who wants to probably shouldn't be allowed to.

a Mac10 can be owned, and used with a License or proper modification.
a silencer can be owned with a license.
the magazine is just a good Idea.

but no one, but a officer of the law, may have or use a firearm within a bar or other such establishments no matter what kind of gun it is or licensing they have.

but if I owned a bar I would probably have a gun in the back.

MAC-10s go beyond "gun-nut" for me.
