Self-Defense Ammo for Pistol Caliber Carbines

Personal defense weapons (PDWs) are a class of compact selective fire, magazine-fed, submachine gun like firearms – essentially a hybrid between a submachine gun and compact assault rifle.

This gives the PDW better range, accuracy and armor-penetrating capability than submachine guns, which fire pistol-caliber cartridges.
