You wouldn't wanna have to go looking for the key if you had to jump in one in the ...

I use flex cuffs at work because it is company policy. We all hate them, they are almost impossible to apply to a resisting subject without doing damage to the person first (ie break one of his arms). Give me good old Smith and Wesson steel cuffs anyday of the week.

Standard SMG ammo coming out of the 16 inch PS90 barrel should be quieter then out of the 10.2" SMG barrel. It won't be silent by any means, just not as loud.
