I tried bump firing with my AR and didn’t get much success. I didn’t really pursue it after the initial try.
But then I was shooting my buddies MAK-90 and I realized the stiffer recoil might do the trick. I asked him if he'd mind and he didn’t. By the third try I was ripping off full mags. It was frickin’ awesome!!!

Yeah, bumping the AK is easy.

223 is a little light and I can see 308 being a little much. The AK is for Goldilocks, man...it's JUST RIGHT!

I saw a video of someone bumping a Garand though. Pretty cool.

With the price of 7.62X39 these days are you sure you want to be waisting it like that

I think I might have seen the same one. Some guy wearing shorts out in the desert? Kind of like a bumpfire tutorial?
Now that I've done 7.62X39mm I can only imagine what it must be like out of a Garand. I mean, sure...it's a little heavier but DAMN!!! You would need a good firm hold with your weak hand.

Damn, I thought you were joking. It's been awhile since I bought some.

Well, for one it was awesome entertainment for me and the others so speaking for myself I don’t consider it a waste.
And it really wasn't that much money. It's definitely not going to bite into my entertainment/discretionary spending budget.

Now the machinegun shoot I'm going to in a few months might bite into my discretionary spending budget a little ...but that won't be a waste either .

I’m not sure what this means but probably either bumpfire is unimpressive or bumpfire is lame/dangerous/stupid. Maybe all of that.

Regardless, it was my first time doing it successfully and it was really fun. It seems like you came into the thread trying to be a jerk but I don’t know why. On the bright side; you succeeded.
