there are several choices for full auto or burst firing pistols that would have been availible in the sixties. The Mauser Model of 1896, known as the C96, was produced in .30 and 9mm calibers.
.30 caliber is 3/10th's of an inch in diameter while the 9mm is actully a little larger being .355 inches in diameter. It was made in full auto bersions in the 1920's and early 1930's. Some were used in WWII by the Nazis. Some Colt Model 1911's were modified to fire bursts or be fully automatic during the same time period. The 1911 was the pistol issued to US servicemen in .45 caliber. The Russian produce Stechkin is a 9mm pistol that fires full auto and was developed in the early 60's, it also took a wire stock that was detachable and was used during the infamous 1984 coupe de etat of the Afgani goverment by Spetnaz commandoes. The British modified the Browning GP35 9mm pistol of 1935 during WWII to fire full auto and issued small numbers to clandestine operatives. this pistol is famous for being the first to ever use a high capacity magazine and held 13 cartridges when 7 or 8 was the norm.I hope this helps, if you have questions please ask.

it takes a lot of practice to use a full auto weapon well and even more experience to use on well in combat. The KGB assassins of the cold war were notorious for using poison delivered by serynge. They did this so much it led people to believe that they were actually blowing air into arteries going t othe brain. They developed several pens that held a subsonic .30 caliber bullet that fired rather quietly and was capable of penetrating 5mm's of mild steel armor at 3 meters. what constitutes mild steel armor is questionable as they never clearly defined it. the pens were used on occassion in assassinations in south america, africa, and china that have ever been reported. it seems the technique ws to get in position to actually be able to touch the target in an inobvious way and shoot him in the heart or head. the KGB also made use of terrorists to hit targets for them. they tended to stay away from knives, garrotes, unarmed techniques, and so on becuase they didnt want their agents to consider using techniques that were to "unsure" in their unintended consequences.

draw, drop, sight, fire.

draw the pistol from the holster
drop the safety, i.e. put the weapon in firing mode
sight in on your target, focus on front sight then on the target
fire by sqeezing the trigger

repeat until all bad guys or ammunition are gone
