I went shooting with my the local SWAT team, a good friend of mine is the team leader. I shot the MP5, the .40 H&K, M-4, AR competition snipe rifle, Rem 700, a couple of their handguns. One guy has a Desert Eagle did'nt like that one very much. And believe it or not, I took my Bulgarian AK semi and Russian WWII M-44 and they loved them!! We ran out of 400 rounds of the 54r for the old Russian!

2 hours of shooting, I put through 9 mags of MP5 9mm...the M-4 actually put some nice cherry streaks on my shoulder, brought my own ammo and mags for it. Great day at the SWAT range and...I learned to shoot and load the "right" way, learned how to correctly use a shoulder sling, lots of learning for me today. I have decided top go through their CQB class now. Amazing what a little info and tactics will do for you. Oh yeah...I love the MP5!

I shot a couple of mags through a DE .50 AE.

The recoil did not bother me, but I kept hitting the slide release with my thumb.

I consciously tried to keep that from happening, no luck.

About $1 a pop too, glad I wasn't paying for the ammo.


Sounds like you had a good time!

I have never had anyone show me how to "use" the shoulder sling correctly, guess because I never saw a need for it. We shot full auto standing up and attacking, so he taught me proper stance and how to hold the weapon correctly. Again, after how many years of owning a myriad of these guns I have never had a "tactical" teacher showing me what to do. Where the gun rest, where your shoulders and arms need to be to buffer the MG. Then the sniper showed me a different way from the MG way, of course...great day of learning, I just soaked it in and felt like a total moron on gunplay after today..I know nothing except that which I read or have seen others. Today was different.

The M-4 had a trijicon on a rail, collapsible w/ M-4 handguards,,I used his 30 rounders and had 1 of them jam on round 25-27 going fa. Not sure why that happened..they were LEO mags.

Very good day for me today.

Yeah..I thought about that, but I thought it would be kind of odd asking the SWAT team would they taking action pics of me shooting their government weapons. Maybe when I go through the class, I know I will take some pics. That H&K .40 felt like a Tommy gun...rat,tat,tat,tat,tat. The surefire grip and light on it probably cost more than the gun.

Could the team leader correctly identify the difference between an SKS and an AK?

Whats that supposed to mean? Good lord..don't start that stuff tpnight please.

The M-44 was the prom queen today..everyone wanted to shoot it, and is suprisingly accurate..even the sniper commented on it being very accurate.

Well you shoulda been!

Their police range down the way is always filled with automatics. That's the nicest part about it.
