Guided by greed and hunger for power, the mobsters wanted to bend civil society into submission so they could impose a dictatorial government and form an illegitimate state within a state. Because of the lucrative aspect of crime in general, the mafia was very often better equipped than the police who had a standard secondary weapon and sometimes, a 12 gauge pump action shotgun, while the weapons used by the mafia were more varied, sometimes military issued.
#10 The FN Model 1905
This hand gun is thinner than a piece of paper and its bullet delivers quite the paper cut. Fabricated between 1906 and 1959, it fires a .25 ACP bullet of 45 grain (2,92 grams) at 815 feet per second (248 m/s), this anemic bullet was effective within a few meters. Slim and compact, the small gun is very conceivable, and could fit in most pockets, hats, or discretely strapped around the ankle . Mostly used for close quarters assassinations, the killers would aim for the head, heart or any other vital body part.
