    What is parabellum?
    Look like John did not die, will he revenge?
    Did Winston really turn against John?
    I think there will be John Wick 4, right?

    Yes. Imperative singular of paro, parare, paravi, paratum: the verb prepare. But it should be two separate words, not one, I think.

    What is" 9mm parabellum"?

    Oh sorry, just realised, it will be some ghastly US euphemism for a handgun.

    In a European handgun, how many fingers fire at the same time?

    actually
    9mm parabellum refers to the cartridge
    " designed by Georg Luger and introduced in 1902 by the German weapons manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) (German Weapons and Munitions Factory) for their Luger semi-automatic pistol."
    so
    German---not US
    ...........
    quite often 9mm parabellum is used for the pistol as well
    "Parabellum. n. proprietary name for a type of automatic firearm, 1904 (Mauser & Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken)"
    .........................
    as to how it is used in a john wick flic
    I ain't got a clue

    The movie uses the phrase. Nothing directly connects to parabellum bullets.
