Even though I live in an NFA-friendly state, I have yet to even see a machine gun in person, much less shoot one. They used to do a nationwide full-auto shoot up in Northern Maine every year, but the same year I became interested in guns, it was shut down by the founders indefinitely.

never held one, never fired one

You need to

They wouldn't let us select "Auto" when I qualed with the M-16.

Link Posted: 12/13/2005 10:59:59 AM EDT
Never.

I certainly would love to. I'll set up a donation site to get $3,500 so I can get a MAC-10.

They can be fun.

I got to shoot up all the leftovers when my unit did our annual qualify with our 50cals.

I have felt the power, and it is GOOD!
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:01:14 AM EDT
The only MG I have ever shot is my MAC-11.

I shot M16A2s several times in the Navy, but with the selector never on anything other than semi.

Shoulda joined the Corps...

I'd be in your shoes, Roboman, if it weren't for a pricey rental my brothers, dad and I did in late Winter '04. We rented a full auto 9mm AR subgun and an MP5 for an hour.

It was sweet. Pricey but sweet. I personally preferred the MP5 but wouldn't have kicked either out of the bed for eating crackers.

I thought I never would, then a friendly guy with a WWII MP-40 let me have a go.

Then a fellow ARFCOM member let me fire his Uzi and MP-5.

It's a great experience.

Occasionally, when my SKS goes full auto on me.
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:02:59 AM EDT
I never have, but my AR15 bumpfires well enough. Just can't aim at shit real well. I can hit the mountain purdy well though!

If the former is true, then it is pretty safe to assume the latter must be true.

I have just shot some of CMMG toys a M16 M249 and P90
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:03:51 AM EDT
the cloest ive been to firing/ holding one is down the road from some guys shooting a mac 10
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:04:31 AM EDT
You all that haven't fired a real machine gun (bump fires and occasional multi-round burst fire doesn't count) you need to go enlist in the Army or Marine Corp right now.
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:04:48 AM EDT
Unfotunately, only semi for me
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:05:02 AM EDT
Never fired one. I just don't have the dough.
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:05:15 AM EDT
I highly suggest NOT ever handling one, much less shooting one.

If you DO get to shoot one, consider yourself warned. You will be looking for all kinds of ways to refinance your house, sell your semi-auto toys and anything else not absolutely needed for survival... Just so you can buy your first MG.

If you could have only one, I'd suggest a RR M16.
If you can't afford one of those, go after a Cobray M11/9. Still the least expensive MG available today, and LOTS of fun to shoot when using a suppressor and MacJack.

In that case, the closest I've been is to when my AR-15 kept double-firing and dropping three-round bursts after having not been cleaned in a while.

Scared the shit out of me when it happened a few times in a row. Broke that sum' bitch down right there and cleaned it.
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:05:36 AM EDT
never fired a MG. I did get to fire my buddies Reising .45 that was F/A though.

Seeing as I have yet to leave this dammed state (other than visiting family when I was younger, and going on a few cruises) I have never even been able to fondle anything that even looks like a machine gun.

My machine gun fund (for when I leave this state) is piling up as we speak though!

Hey, bumping from the shoulder (as I've done with my AK) is somewhat similar....
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:06:43 AM EDT
The SAW is teh suck.

I still had fun though
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:07:00 AM EDT
They're especially fun when someone else is paying for the ammo.

Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:07:33 AM EDT
Held many (M249, M240, M16, MP5, M2, basically anything the military has in quantity), never fired any.

I have fired an original 1928 thompson on Full auto. My friend has a few thompsons with the happy switch.

Once - an HK51 at Miller's Campground here in Ohio. Some guy (not an ARFCOMMER) showed up with all sorts of cool toys, and that was one of them. The muzzle blast was strong enough to make my sinuses feel pressure.
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:08:13 AM EDT
Never fired one. (sad to say!)
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:08:31 AM EDT
unfortunately no.

No it isn't. And if you have never fired F/A, how could you make a comparison?

Wishful thinking on my part.

What do you need a machinegune for?
Nobody NEEDS a machinegun.
They're only good for killing people.
You can't hunt with them.
If you want to shoot one, join the Army.

Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:10:25 AM EDT
i have!
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:10:41 AM EDT
About 2 years ago I sold my UZI sub-machine gun. Bought it new from Vector Arms for $2,700 + tax stamp. Sold it for $6,500 because I needed fast cash. As soon as I save up, I'll get me another class 3 weapon. They are fun as can be!!!

Never held or fired one, I have drooled over alot of them though.

For those of you who have never held one:

Hold your AK and a shoelace at the same time.
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:22:21 AM EDT
Most of these were dealer samples....
MG34, M60, Sten, M16, Reising,
Remington 1100 12ga ( this one leaves bruises)
Tec9, 1919, sks sbr, Ak47, Mac 10, Uzi, Ruger 1022,
American 180.

Never did understand how that works though.

who needs MGs when you can bump fire for much cheaper?
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:27:11 AM EDT
Seen M16, thompsons, ak47, m1919, 50. cal, and many more at gun shows. But never shot a full auto, unless bumpfiring my ar-15 counts

It's a lot of fun but for me... Unless it was like a $100 option with no silly licensing or I won the Lottery or something, I won't own any.

I have a pretty quick trigger finger. Not 600 rpm quick, but fast enough for me to think "That was just $8 worth of ammo I just fired!"
Link Posted: 12/13/2005 11:31:57 AM EDT
Done it a bit (See Video this thread)

I have tried to fire one of each type in the USA (foriegn or Domestic manufacture). Still a few I have not shot that I know of but the list is getting much shorter
