machine gun?

I've seen reasons why you can't use a shotgun (not enough accurate range) or a rifle (risk of bullet missing and doing damage/harm when it lands), but how about an old machine gun? I know nothing about firearms, but my impression from WWII movies is that those machine gun bullets wouldn't go that far (or be moving fast when falling to the ground), but there are much better chances of hitting a drone.
