PDWPDW, meaning Personal Defense Weapon. This acronym almost always refers to a very short, collapsible, folding rifle, or submachine gun. The definition should technically include any weapon that one could use to defend oneself with, but the term PDW has come to describe small, very handy little rifles. A PDW would be used by someone like a secret service agent, or undercover Law Enforcement officer like an FBI agent or DEA agent.
