    Body armour lead to them being replaced with PDWs, better body armour killed the PDW too.
    As for civilian use a SMG is peak home defence but you don't get the giggle switch because your life isn't as valuable as those that can afford body guards with SMGs.

          Who the frick is wearing level 4 body armor that can defeat +P black tips in ANY scenario where a SMG would be used? They're basically relegated to CQB and naval exercises where over-penetration and ricochets are primary concerns.
          Somalian pirates are now rocking Level4 plates?

          The REAL reason people stopped using SMGs and switched to PDWs is because of the AR15 industrial complex heralded by the Rothschild conglomerates of Northropp-Grumman, BP, and PepsiCo.

            Everyone. You are not defeating modern IV plates with a PDW or even an intermediate cartridge.
            That being said, civilians don't really need to concern themselves with this sort of thing. a PDW or SMG would be great for home defense because your average crackhead robber is not wearing armor.

              I hate to break it to you, but 5.56mm, especially out of some tiny ass barrel, is not going to ever defeat modern level 4 either.

              SWAT, police, etc. all over the world still use SMGs. The reason they are not popular on /k/ is purely LARP fantasists dreaming about how other people a. posers without "muh real deal load outs," where as their 8 identical AR-15s are "SHTF " and ""Boog" approved for all the people covered head to tow in level 4 they will face...

              ...even though their weapon is also infective against that same armor and they have reeeeeed over 6.8mm precisely because they think even a full powered round will be equally ineffective against armor, that BABT isn't relevant, etc.

              Of course, the whole thing is contradictory cope to deal with cognitive dissonance. If 6.8mm is stupid because it simply can't defeat armor and what is actually important is having more rounds with less recoil so you can hit where the target is unarmored, then the same logic that makes people suggest that 5.56mm > .308 and 6.8mm for armor says PDWs are superior to 5.56mm "meta."

              It basically comes down to "SBRs were the meta of GWOT raids and I gotta be equipped like the Navy Seals for my LARP."

                Except 5.56 weighs less than 9mm does, while giving you actual better wounding, and has low recoil still, whereas 5.7 gives you worse terminal effects, and is worse for civilians because of limited projo selection, limited projo availability, limited weapons that fire it, and weird coatings on the cases that make reloading an adventure. 5.56 fits in pdw sized guns too, you're just a humongous snowflake of a homosexual.

          Body armor is good enough to reliably stop 5.56mm now.

          You don't really get significant BABT with it either. If armor is what makes PDWs and SMGs obsolete, and level 4 that will reliably stop 5.56mm is getting cheap and can be found on Syrian rebels, etc., what exactly is the argument here.

          What's the weight difference between armor that's going to stop 5.7mm and 5.56mm and more over what is everyone likely to wear if 5.56mm is the norm?

      They're in the special forces armories for the guys who're attached to do something like explosives work and are required to carry a "rifle" but the entire team knows that if they're actually required to shoot something, things have gone majorly fricked and as so it's better for them to carry the lightest thing possible to make room for their specialty gear.

        The concern with using a 5.56 black tip at 2,800fps is that it'll go through your target and hit other people, not that it'll damage some wires. Do I need to give you a one-on-one lesson about deep penetration?

          Also, bonus round; even if the target isn't wearing armor, PDW wounding is fricking terrible and takes far too many rounds to stop the target as reported by multiple users which is why everyone who actually shoots people has dropped them for carbines.

            Oh now we're talking about drywall? Anything goes through drywall, even .22LR will penetrate multiple sheets of basic 1/2" gyprock. If you're raiding a house made of drywall it's probably an American home in which case everyone inside can die without any real problems arising. Police raid the wrong homes and murder people in their beds without consequence, it's just part and parcel of being American.

            Aiming for heads and genitals are the new meta for CQB, you'd know this if you operat8ed hard enough. A few rounds of 5.7 into a man's penile region will put him down instantly. 2-3 shots of 9mm directly into his face will incapacitate him as well.

              The P90 disagrees with a 50 round mag and very high rate of fire.

              Real life isn't a video game where the bad guy gets hitstunned upon taking damage and can't shoot you anymore, and if you have to spend a large amount of rounds on a single target, that's time and ammo not being spent on anyone else in the room.

              >When employing the MP7 up close, you literally use it like a fire hose and sprinkle 4.6 all over the torso of the guy you want to reduce (usually on Auto, which is a CQB no-go anyway), and you have to keep hosing him down with bullets until his brain figures out that you are filling him in. Usually this takes longer than shooting a NSR with a rifle, so by the time that your brain figures out that the guy has quit and is crumpling, you are almost out of bullets and any other threats in the room have most likely started to engage you. IF your team is on their **** and everyone grasps the true importance of primary/secondary sectors of fire, then perhaps you can get in there and all of your guys can sprinkle 4.6 liberally on all of the bad guys in an efficient manner, but if you fail to do that, then bad things will happen quickly.

                Anecdotal evidence vs actual research.
                This is why the FBI went on a 30 year quest to try to develop a better pistol cartridge after the 1986 shootout in Miami. They went "Damn, we shot this guy 12 times and he didn't die! Our guns must be too weak!"
                In the end they settled on 9mm anyway. That was because all that fricking research just lead them to conclude that shot placement is king and penetration is queen, so they never needed a new cartridge in the first place.

                SF especially CT have different requirements. The MP5K and now the MP7 are popular choices for SF because they checked several boxes SF needed that army doesn't: they're more concealable, accurate, select fire, allow both operator and ready weapon to fit in tight spaces, and have less chance of overpenetration, which is a key concern when for example shooting a terrorist in the middle of a roomful of hostages

                any issue of lethality and range is mitigated because SF train much more than regular Army and can place their shots more accurately, in heads for example; and most use cases are typically for close quarter battle
