134. LOL!!!
"I don't think automatic weapons qualify because these aren't useful in self-defense. "

How do you figure?

Doesn't the military issue automatic weapons to rear echelon personnel for self defense? What about tank crews? Their offensive armament is the tank itself, but they're issued smgs for personal defense, too.

If one person has a handgun and another has a smg at 50 yards, assuming equal levels of training, and they're trying to kill each other, which would you put money on surviving? I'd bet on the guy with the smg.
