One of them had a BAR. The 28 is still an amazing machine. it had 50 and 100 round drums. It was a force to be reckoned with.
meh, no mention of the actual weapon they employ
Bonnie and Clyde BAR’s and Ford V8’s, I think I heard the men that finally took him down had BARs modified for higher capacity. And shotguns. And revolvers.
I read somewhere that one hit man in relatively recent times was ordinary looking (a grey man) and used a .22 to the back of the head as he walked up to the victim. Then he’d just walk away as though nothing happened. Nothing to call attention to the act.
Yep the .22 was popular with the Mob. Usual just POP POP and goodbye.
Not like todays morons who drop 50 rounds on a corner to hit one domestic terrorist and an innocent child.
Tough to beer that post
I don’t intend to justify murder with this post, but it’s the difference between a professional murderer with a specific target and animals trying to prove to themselves that they wield power and are really something special.
The choice of weapons may be about messaging as much as convenience.
Did I miss something in the posted read? The model 19 wasn’t available in the 1930’s. And no model 27 weighed under 32 oz/2 lbs.
