Pretty much unanimous in the replies that a drum like this is an ungainly, unreliable attachment in every or nearly every self-defense scenario. For amateurs who want to spray & pray til they're shot down.

That’s a version of the 100-round drum magazine that enabled the Dayton shooter to kill and injure so many people in under a minute. Think of it as a stylized totem to a particularly bloodthirsty god…

Garry Wills, in the NY Review of Books, “Our Moloch”:
… Adoration of Moloch permeates the country, imposing a hushed silence as he works his will. One cannot question his rites, even as the blood is gushing through the idol’s teeth. The White House spokesman invokes the silence of traditional in religious ceremony. “It is not the time” to question Moloch. No time is right for showing disrespect for Moloch…
It has the power to destroy the reasoning process. It forbids making logical connections. We are required to deny that there is any connection between the fact that we have the greatest number of guns in private hands and the greatest number of deaths from them. Denial on this scale always comes from or is protected by religious fundamentalism. Thus do we deny global warming, or evolution, or biblical errancy. Reason is helpless before such abject faith…
… Molochism is the one religion that can never be separated from the state. The state itself bows down to Moloch, and protects the sacrifices made to him. So let us celebrate the falling bodies and rising statues as a demonstration of our fealty, our bondage, to the great god Gun.
The Dayton gunman killed nine people and injured 26 IN LESS THAN ONE MINUTE. #DaytonShooting

This cartoon is not new.
What's so fucked up about America in 2019 is you don't even know which shooting this was after pic.twitter.com/FjhxrpVBya
