Two MP5s, a G36, an M16, an AC556, and a Tommy Gun!

Only cost was ammo!

In New Jersey no less!

It *is* kinda like pulling the trigger real fast on a semi, except *not*.



And now I only have to wait a year to do it again!

Merry Christmas!

sweeeeeeeeeet. theres nothing quite like it. ill never forget my first expereince with a machine gun. a shooting club consisting of rather affluent doctors and dentists showed up to the local range. i was about 12 playing hooky from school with my dad at the range. one of the old men saw me staring at the belt getting eaten up by his M60. there was about 100 rounds left on the belt when he says, "hey son, you wanna shoot this?". needless to say, i dumped the belt and i was hooked for life.

Good for you! Must have been in the air because I got to shoot an actual MG-42 yesterday morning out the back of a friends pickup. He is one of the few class 3 dealers here in Iowa, mostly buying and selling from police depts. We shot at milk jugs about 200 yards away. Just walk the bullets up on them like a garden hose! Incredible experience- They don't call it Hitler's Zipper for nothing. patsue

DUDE! I remember my first time. It was at bulletfest IV. I shot a mounted .30 (100 rounds) and a mounted .50 (only two rounds) and a half clip (I think) out of an uzi. I also bump fired an AK which was cool. The uzi was pretty cool, The gun just started to steadily rise from all the 9mm rounds buzzing off. P.S. this is my first post under the name IRONsite. I was formerly CATscan.

I almost wish I had never gotten to shoot one. It was very ejoyable but since I live in a social represive state I will never get to own one.[uzi]

my first was a m1 tsmg at a dealer's range - fun but the constant buzzing around of "safety" guy was offputting - this about 15 years ago next was friend's mac11/9mm about 3 years ago BUG HIT - now 7nfa guns 2 cans later i'm waiting on another f4 to clear - multiple macs [mother imprint i guess], uzis, m16 with 223/9mm uppers, and WANTING MORE....MORE.....MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got my cherry busted while at Bulletfest 2. The first gun I shot was 1919. I was wearing a big old cheese eating grin after that. Cost me $40 to burn thru a 250 round belt. I went back a bit later and did it again. That same day I fired a Thompson, and MickeyMouse was kind enough to let me run some mags through his M-16. {Mickey...you have no idea how badly I wanted to take that gun home with me [;)]) About a year ago I met some local guys who set me on the path to full auto ownership here in Michigan (C&R only). I am currently waiting for the ATF to approve my first transfer. I have a feeling I may have just embarked on a very expensive obsession.

I just shot my first full auto the other day! The disconector on my postban mac11 chipped off and it went cyclilic. It was pretty cool... Sigh. Now I gotta fix it.

When you were ready to pull the trigger, did you see the lidless Eye wreathed in flames? Did it look back into your heart and stir the passions of absolute Power? It did to me those many years ago. I embraced the Power. It is precious to me. Bilster

I agree 100%!! My first time was at Basic with a M16A1, later I got to fire a M60, .50, M249, and the M242 Bushmaster 25mm Auto Cannon. WOWWWW That lidless eye was upon me big time.

My first was at Gunstock. Mojo let me shoot his MP5SD, shorty M16 and the M16 with an M4 upper and can. Great fun!
Link Posted: 12/17/2003 2:55:42 AM EDT
I think mine was a M240B, than M249, than M2 BMG, and lastly although its not atuomatic, the 120mm mortar is fun as hell to shoot. [sniper2]

First time for me was at the Hiram Maxim shhoot a couple o' years ago. A Dentist friend let me shoot his 1919, 250 rounds down range and giggling like an idiot! Then he let me shoot the Sten. Kind of anti-climactic, but still fun. Then another member of our club let me use his m-16 shorty, by far the loudest. I have been assimilated.

Ah, memories! My first was last fall. While inventorying the gun safe at the PD, I came across an M2 Carbine that had been given to the PD in the 50's. It had so much gunk gumming it up, it proabaly hadn't been shot since the 50's! Talked to the Chief and got permission to clean it up and shoot it. Used a couple 30 round mags I also found in the safe. It choked regularly with the 30's, only getting off 4 or 5 round bursts before it choked. But it was a BLAST(pun intended)!!! Too bad I'm too poor to afford full-auto! Bub

I got bit by the NFA bug years ago. Went as long as I could without buying an MG, but then finally broke down and bought an M11. Bitched and moaned for months about the damn $200 transfer tax and [i]swore[/i] I'd never buy another MG because I couldn't bear the thought of having to pay another $200 just for the privilege of being able to buy an overpriced bullet hose. That was several thousand dollars in transfer taxes ago. ...and I'm still buying... (BTW - anyone got a transferable MG42?)

gunham, I was driving back toward Atlanta on US278 right after Thanksgiving. Immediately after driving through Piedmont, US278 makes a left. After a few miles toward Atlanta, one comes to a series of long lakes on the right. To make a long story shorter, I saw and filmed a Bald Eagle that lake that's just across from that little store...I don't know the name. A Red-tailed Hawk was trying to chase him off which put the eagle's [b]80-inch[/b] wingspan into proper perspective. I'm a big fan of raptors, and seeing the Bald Eagle topped an incredible holidy of raptor sightings. Anyway, the bird might be a permanent resident. Has that eagle's presence been noted by the locals? Piedmont is a beautifil area. I could easily live there.

My first was several years ago. M16 with incendiary rounds at a steel plate 7 yards. Second was a M2 carbine. The only thing on this one is you need to control the trigger. It has a lot of muzzle rise.

about 2 and a half years ago, a friend of mine and I went on a "Machine Gun Adventure" from The Armory in Scottsdale, AZ. We took 10 guns: MP5, Mini-UZI, UMP .40, Glock G18, Colt M4, AK-47, H&K G36, Steyr Aug, M240, and M249. I had a smile on my face for weeks, and I definitely got hooked. So to make a long story short, I just recently completed the LONG paperwork process and got my very own Vector UZI. Hopefully the first of many NFA purchases.....
