I spent the weekend up north shooting and relaxing. Thought I would share a pic of my brother and me bump firing. He is on the left with an AR and I am on the right with my SLR-95. Yeah.....its a waste of ammo but it's also a hell of a lot of fun.

Lumpy how long can your brother bump his AR? The best I ever got was 2-3 rounds out of mine. Or does he have a better than stock trigger?

He has a Colt with just the stock trigger. He was getting full mag dumps on a regular basis. I was able to dump full mags a couple times through my Bushmaster but my bro is better with the AR than I am. There is a technique to bumping an AR and I intend to perfect it at Bulletfest.

Just look at how much more mayhem the 7.62 is causing compared to the tiny .223. ;)

If you have Kazaa, search for bump fire video. I have 2 on there, Bumping a Mak-90 and an HK93.

use the happy switch, luke...use the happy switch!


No happy switches on this young Padawan's rifles. Guess I may have to seek out such weapons at Bulletfest.

Pardon me, But what the hell is bump firing? And how is it done?? Also have any of you used a "hellfire trigger" and are they legal, do they work good?

bump firing is where you let the recoil of the rifle 'push'the trigger against your finger. You hold the forearm loosly and slightly foreward, and let'er rip. Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy and you can do it on demand. AK's are easy once you get it, HK93 are GREAT, HK91's...well, you find out how 'big' a .308 is, but AR's are hard for me. Ak's and 93's I can empty a clip

Here are some short videos bumping an SLR95 and an OLY M4. The M4 is actually a lot easier to shoulder bump due to weight but the AK is is easier to dump full mags. The SLR is a REAL pig on weight. Stamped AKs are real sweet!

As for the "waste of ammo" argument, with a little practice you can put rounds right on target even with out sighting. Just walk the fire onto the target. We have dumped 75 rounds into a 100 yard rifle target and counted 55+ hits. One thing though, just be careful who is around because you WILL attract attention.
