Guys who have to exit a bar at closing time into the street in search of girls not yet taken due to their failures all night long.
David got shot down so many times last night that his only chance for some action was to be a street sweeper.
(1) A 12-round revolver style shotgun originally designed in S. Africa. A weapon of destruction. (2) Any number of shotguns converted to 10+ round capacity.
Let's see how this bulletproof glass stands up to my street sweeper.
Slang for a type of shotgun that is drum fed, consequently ammo capacity is a bit larger that any other shotgun.
Street sweepers (in pertinence to firearms) are NOT submachine pistols or any other non-shotgun type firearm.
any high powered assault weapon; principally high guage shotguns and automatic weapons (AKs, ARs, etc)
I'm going down down baby,
your street in a range rover
Street sweeper baby, cocked
Ready to go
An assault shotgun, such as the Pancor Jackhammer. Comes from its ability to engage multiple targets at the same time. Also called a street cleaner.
Get a eye full of lead when I slight your lights out/
With a street cleaner, wipe your life out/
Bullets know at you're ears, like a Tyson fight bout/
The word "streetsweeper" a slang term used to describe any fully/semi automatic shotgun, but mainly the DAO-12. The "streetsweeper" is a popular choice for drive-by shootings, which is where it's name comes from.
Not all the vehicle's is long enough to stash the streetsweeper
Watch your back cuz, I'll put that streetsweeper on ya
a gun, called a street sweeper because it cleans the streets of those who are disliked or unlucky
I'm goin down down baby, yo' street in a Range Rover
Street sweeper baby, cocked ready to let it go
Contrary to popular belief, a "street-sweeper" is not just a large-capacity compact shotgun; the term also includes most automatic compact firearms as well (Ex: Uzi, MAC-10, Ak-47, etc). The term "street-sweeper" was given to these weapons because they are capable of spraying an alley or narrow street in one "sweep" (usually without even releasing the trigger or changing clips).
"...and if it's major,
hit me on my pager,
I'll load up the creeper,
and pop a clip into this Street Sweeper!"
