    Even quieter will be the MPA Defender .45 going from Safe to Fire. The sound of 25 to 50 rounds however won't be quiet.

    More likely provide proof of the Theory.

    If you need that many rounds to "resolve a situation" you are either a VERY poor shot or have bitten off more than you can chew. (Either way, prognosis is poor!)

    Above to be taken as good humored jest, not a criticism of your abilities.

    Just sayin'.

    One of my favorite firearm faux pas was in Saving Private Ryan.
    The American sniper was zeroing in on a German sniper who was up in a tower. He estimated the range, reached up to the objective lens of the scope, turned it, and said, "Two clicks." Of course what he was really doing was focussing the scope, not setting the elevation for the range.

    I'm not a bad shot but in the middle of the night when things go bad and no one else home, more rounds available for possible multiple BGs is always good. The finger can always come off the trigger. Most home invasions in this area had 3 to 5 BGs involved.

    In the same movie towards the end in the last real battle, there is an American with a Browning model 1919 .30 cal machine gun and at one point the camera gets close enough to the gun that you can see the blanks on the belt feeding the gun.

    All explosives just burn. Some just burn faster than others.

    There is a big difference between detonation and deflagration, or burning. Gun powder deflagrates, or burns, which means that the burning or deflagation front moves in the opposite direction of the particle velocity of the combustion gases. An explosive detonates, which means that the detonation front and the combustion gases move in the same direction. Tha't why the detonation pressure is much, much higher that the deflagration pressure.

    Not true. See my previous post; it applies to black powder, too. It's just that with black powder the burning rate is essentially independent of confining pressure, whereas, with smokeless powder, the burning rate increases with confining pressure. Place a line of smokeless powder on the ground and ignite one end, and the powder burns slowly from the lit end to the other. Do that with black powder, then stand waaaayyy back before igniting it.
