As governments attempt to make more guns and gun ownership illegal, they succeed in doing so. It does not mean that fewer criminals are armed. Overall crime does not drop when controls are implemented. One of the reasons is that guns are fairly easy to make, and the materials to make them are virtually impossible for an industrial society to control. An unintended consequence is that submachine guns or machine pistols may be substituted for ordinary pistols. They are easier to make, because they are a simpler mechanism.
The above machine pistol/ submachine gun, based on the MAC design is
homemade, as is the silencer/suppressor. Both are illegal for the nearly everyone to possess in Canada. This machine pistol was taken in a drug raid. From globalnews.ca:
Officials said the two busts resulted in police seizing large quantities of fentanyl, meth and crack cocaine, along with seven handguns, and tens of thousands of dollars.An identical version was seized a year ago in Alberta.
We have taken significant amounts of drugs and firearms off the streets, RCMP Insp. Robert Thorainson said.

Hmmm...I wnder if I could help making a Swedish model work?
I think the military went to the 9mm round because that’s what NATO uses. It’s easier logistically if you only have a couple of different ammunition types.
One would think that standards would follow those of the country with the largest standing army and that also footed the vastly larger portion of the bill...right?
Very true, Japan during WW2 had so many different calibers that logistically it was a nightmare for them.
I keep a good set of ear muffs by the bed, ones which amplify sounds below my hearing level but block any sound above comfy decibels. IF a fool or fools break into my house, those ear muffs go on even before I rack the slide ...
147 grain 9mm is subsonic in barrels shorter than ten inches. You can buy an adapter to screw on a oil filter to suppress the sound to a pop. Youtube has Hickok 45 demonstrating it ...
Hearing protection is a lot cheaper than a new set of ears.
The “boom” is a sharp crack along the trajectory until its velocity drops below mach 1.
