Also good for making flashy gun fighting scenes in movies...
Like in the movie FACE OFF, where Caster Troy (one of the coolest and slickest armed movie bad guys) hoses Sean Archer with a russian machine pistol. But the Hero jumps out of the way of course. The prop guy actually said that the gun was too cool for a good guy to have. Didn't the same actor use a machine pistol - the beretta 92 looking one... in the movie Broken Arrow? Aren't they both directed by John Woo? Woo LOVES his handguns, and there will be a lot of them in any of his movies.
