Daddy would have gotten us Uzis....
An iconic 80's movie. Night of the Comet. If you are of a certain age, and your parents got premium cable, you've this movie a bajillion times back then. Along with Red Dawn (WOLVERINES) and Dreamscape. The rotation was heavy.
Now, see, unless I had some hard data I'd have stuck with a MAC10 over the Uzi. At least in the original formulation with integral silencer. Something to hold onto and make the thing a bit more controllable. I'd have used the wire shoulder stock too. But yes, as is, the bare bones Uzi might have been preferable.
When is same "unless I had some hard data" I'd want to know the actual failure rate of the MAC10 vs whatever. Were the FTF we see in the clip typical? Was that due to substandard magazines or something else? Note it was near the end of the stick, when the spring is at full extension and getting weaker. Just a guess.
I like the authority of a .45, and the MAC10 came in that caliber, but for machine pistol work I prefer the controlability of the 9mm. Based on personal experience shooting full auto, at least. But going up against cosmic dust disease zombies like the ones in this movie, and given a wide selection, I'd eschew rock and roll all together, and recommend you do too, except for in some narrow situations. Like defending a tight door way where you have non-headshot zombies clustered together and you need to "repel boarders."
