1. Acronym used by the United States Armed Forces for 'squad automatic weapon'. A SAW is a fully automatic machine gun (as opposed to an assault rifle) that is usually issued to one soldier of a team of soldiers.
Generally used as a reference to the current machine gun designated as M249, or the FN Minimi machine gun. This gun can carry 100 or 200 bullets in a single magazine and fires between 750 to 1000 rounds a minute.
Previous examples of squad automatic weapons in combat are the M-60 during the Vietnam conflict, and the Browning Automatic Rifle used in World War II.
2. A horror/suspence movie made in 2004, starring Leigh Whannell, Cary Elwesk, Danny Glover, Dina Meyer and Monica Potter.
"Did you see how the saw just RIPPED through that guy? It was better than Chainsaw Massacre!"
"You never really saw the movie, did you?"
