Another downside of ï¬ring a riï¬e on full automatic is that it tends to run out of ammunition pretty quickly.
Thanks to some information provided to me by a fan, it turns out that neither Kate nor Mike could use the weapons theyâre carrying in their normal duties as Chicago police ofï¬cers. Kateâs Glock 9mm is banned from use on the force because of its unusual lack of normal safety features. It also has a nasty tendency to misï¬re, especially when dropped. Mikeâs enormous .44 Magnum is well outside the range of allowed ammunition sizes. A .44 round will go right through a target instead of simply stopping it, and the wounds inï¬ected tend to be fatal, which isnât a great outcome for any police ofï¬cer. Ah, well, itâs too late to change now.
