A submachine gun (SMG) is an air-cooled, magazine-fed, automatic carbine designed to fire pistol cartridges. The term "submachine gun" was coined by John T. Thompson, the inventor of the Thompson submachine gun..The submachine gun was developed during World War I (1914–1918). At its zenith in World War II (1939–1945), millions of SMGs were made. Today, submachine guns have been largely replaced by assault rifles, which have a greater effective range and are capable of penetrating ballistic helmets and body armor used by modern infantrymen.. However, submachine guns are still widely used by police and military special forces, who value the SMG's reduced recoil and noise signature, especially when suppressed..In the early 20th century, experimental machine pistols were made by converting pistols such as the Luger P-08 and Mauser C96 from semiautomatic to full-automatic operation and adding detachable stocks. Carbine-type automatic weapons firing pistol rounds were developed during the latter stages of World War I by Italy, Germany and the United States. Their improved firephower offered an advantage in trench warfare....

Ballistic trauma or Gunshot Wound (GSW) is a form of physical trauma sustained from the discharge of arms or munitions.. The most common forms of ballistic trauma stem from firearms used in armed conflicts, civilian sporting, recreational pursuits and criminal activity.. The degree of tissue disruption caused by a projectile is related to the size of the temporary versus permanent cavity it creates as it passes through tissue.. The extent of cavitation, in turn, is related to the following characteristics of the projectile..The immediate damaging effect of the bullet is typically severe bleeding, and with it the potential for hypovolemic shock, a condition characterized by inadequate delivery of oxygen to vital organs. In the case of traumatic hypovolemic shock, this failure of adequate oxygen delivery is due to blood loss, as blood is the means of delivering oxygen to the body's constituent parts. Immediate effects can result when a bullet strikes a critical organ such as the heart or damages a component of the central nervous system such as the spine or brain..Ballistic trauma is sometimes fatal for the recipient, or causes long term negative consequences...

Phi (uppercase Φ, lowercase φ, or math symbol ϕ, also fi), FY or sometimes FEE in English, and in modern Greek, is the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet..The Falkland Islands Spanish: Islas Malvinas [malˈβinas]) are an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean on the Patagonian Shelf..Finland (ISO country code, FI)..Forza Italia, an Italian political party..The IATA code for Icelandair (from the old name of the company: Flugfélag Íslands)..The Feminist Initiative (Sweden)..FI is one of the most psychologically and socially debilitating conditions in an otherwise healthy individual, but it is generally treatable..During The Troubles in Northern Ireland republican groups considered themselves to be law enforcers in their own communities. They used limb punishment shootings to punish petty criminals and other individuals whose behaviour they deemed to be unacceptable..The Red Brigades, an Italian terrorist organization, employed limb punishment shootings to warn their opponents. They used the method to punish at least 75 people up to December 1978..More recently limb punishment shootings have been employed by Hamas in the Gaza Strip to silence their Palestinian critics..Victim was also shot in the ankles and elbows, leaving them with 6 gunshot wounds... one man says to another, "I know what let's do today, let's play the War Game."... everybody Dyes..You know, H; I always wanted to ask you,why do you always carry...
