There is no practical use of shoving 100 machine guns into a box, and saying "LOOK I CAN SHOOT A MILLION TIMES A MINUTE" when the enemy will simply shoot 100 times less than that, from 100 different locations.
Ok going back to your statement that a hand gun can shoot 180,000 rounds per second....well I decided to do some math, because I knew this was ridiculus...but I didn't realize it was THIS RIDICULUS HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA.....
Your statement basically says that for one second, I can walk from here to wherever the bullets end up.
Because as we all know light travels 186,000 feet per second, and bullets 1100 feet per second (about probably 3000 feet or something).
Considering how fast you'd have to be firing, that means each bullet would have to basically be nose to back!
Now one thing I don't know though, is the length of the bullet in question, but I bet times it by 180,000 and it will damn near reach the end of its trajectory, maybe even surpass it, which basically would mean you'd be firing a string
Your going to go through way to many bullet's. It's too costly to blow through 180,000 bullet's in one second, for one target. What's the point? If you wanna tear him to shred's...shove a granade up the enemies bottom instead
Then theres the interesting, although rather unlikely and as yet compltely unproven, story of yours from vietnam.

But, for the fun of it...How exactley do you see this weapon being useful in a wartime situation? Where do you see it as fit to waste ONE MILLION round's of ammo PER minute? For some reason...I can't get past seeing this as a waste of ammo, when I can just bomb the target instead....
