Bump firing is when you rapid fire a semi auto...Most people hold the weapon at waist level,put their thumb in a belt loop put their finger on the trigger and fire letting the recoil of the rifle to shoot rapidlly..

Yep! What he said.

Side note... Just about any semi auto firearm can be bumped from the lowly 1911 to the Remington 1100 which will knock you back a few inches after emptying the tube

Waste? yep!

Fun? oh hell yeah!!

Practical? No chance.

you made me go want to bump something now... calling wife.

I am starting to wonder if it ain't a good idea to keep the whole bumping thing on the down low...
Those post-sunset gun grabber folks with their collective tails between their legs would just love to showcase how mastering the technique could effectively wipe out a small army....NOT!
Semi-auto rifles just got a new lease on life for us, and my thoughts are not to jeapordize it by condoning reckless shooting habits... Yea, sure I can very safely bump the shit out of an AK, 5.45 or 7.62, and even get pretty effective groupings..big whoop. The last thing we need is to
see on the news is some curious shooter in Podunk, USA wipe out a family of four at the local shooting range while trying to 'bump'.....film at 11.
If you don't know what it is, ask a friend.... have someone who knows show you in person how it all works. Shoot off the shoulder for higher accuracy; this isn't necessarily more control, but at least you can gauge where your bullets are going better... Bumping off the hip is just asking for it. And you don't look that cool anyways, trust me.

I shoot on a private range, and I am the range master when anyone else goes with me. As for backstop I got a 50ft. rock cliff with a range cut into it...so I am covered. But now that I played around with it and wasted a couple of hundred rounds getting it mastered I agree it is dangerous and in the wrong hands could cause huge problems. And it is definatley NOT for use on a public range.
