Today a couple of friends and myself were bumpfiring our Ar's and Ak's out in the country on 50 private acres. Practicing from the shoulder. Well, one of the neighbors about a mile away called the sheriff and reported that someone was firing automatic weapons and they responded. We were back in the wood's shooting at a hugh dirt pile that we made as a backstop. I saw the deputy walking up, to where we were with his hand on his service revolver. He was nervous as hell. I asked him what the problem was and he said he had also heard the auto fire from a distance. We had shot about 600 rounds. He inspected our guns and then asked if we could show him how we bumpfired. We each showed him and he had a great big grin on his face. He said he would inform the neighbors that we were not doing anything illegal and there was no reason for concern. He was a 18 year veteran of the force. Just a good cop without a chip on his shoulder.

You should have handed him a mag and let him try.

What is the purpose of bump-firing again?

Heck, even real full-auto is over rated. To each his own...

ArfCom blasphemy! Unbeliever! To not bump is to not belong.

You should have let that poor cop try it out, its the least you can do for him, I would not want to respond to full auto fire with only a revolver.

Most cops will react in the same way if you be smart about it (which you were). You should've offered for him to try it

I have not got tired of it yet. Getting pretty good from the shoulder. It's like Nascar racing. If you get into it you'll understand it. If not, you'll think it's just a bunch of roundy rounders. The ammo bill does suck though...........

Full auto is leagle in fl. I just can't afford a DIAS. The cop told us they have to respond to make sure that all the NFA paperwork is in place. I think with enough practice you could bump almost as good as a full auto. I can put 30 in a 3 foot area from 25 yds. It's addictive.

The same thing happened to me at a friend's ranch over Christmas. No problem. It was funny watching the cop try to figure out if my AK and AR were full auto. He didn't know what he was looking for... He was nice about interrupting us.

It's all fun, man. Firing one round, two, three, or thirty in one squeeze is a kick. If your line of work is to shoot people, then I understand, but the point of bump firing is fun. If it's not fun to you, you're too serious of a guy!

I'd like to do a comparison of me bumping an AR from the shoulder, and a F/A UZI....I'd bet you'd eat those words....or at least rethink how accurate bumping can be if done looking down the barrel instead of holding from the hip.

Somewhere between 45-50 cases of Q3131, by some cocktail napkin math I did during a recent cost/benefit analysis of NFA vs fast shooting semiauto. Still trying to save up for an MG someday, though.

At least he was nice about it, I had the atf try to purue charges on my for bump firing. He was convinced my WASR10 was "3 shot burst" because I was bumpfiring it at a private range.

Oh yea and don't try bumpfiring while standing on a fallen tree or anything where you don't have a good foot plant. I did it once like a dumbass standing ontop of a huge tree that had fallen and was laying on its side with my M1a and a 20rd mag once, and almost ate it big time

I'm sure some of you have seen the vid of a guy bump firing FAST from the shoulder, his name is Rickinvegas. Anyways, someone had one of those round counters that time the gun and i think he managed something around 1050 rounds per minute bump firing an AR15.

there is a post over in the AR discussions with pictures and instructions on how to bump.

my first ar is the 2005 sebr. i was at some family property and was trying out bumpfiring for the firs ttime. it used to be seclueded there, but houses have build up all around his 40 acres since then. i fully expected a sherrif-mobile to pull in and check us out, but i guess noone made the call. i know it must have been heard at at least 25 houses.

I think it is the most pointless thing I have ever seen, as well as being stupid.
If people would just man up and say "its a fun way to burn off a mag" I'd not care.
The problem is, some claim it has a real life/serious purpose, and that scares me.

Ok, who claims that and why are you "scared"? Are you cowering scared like Jason is after you or are you just looking over your shoulder scared? Are you running scared because you claim some folks claim that they can bump accurately?

Have you ever seen someone bump a Beretta storm into a man sized target at 25 feet and keep all the rounds on paper?

I have.

Are you really "scared"?

Wrong word.
It "scares me" to think that there are people who consider "bump firing" to have a real world use.
I don't care if you think it is fun to burn off a mag - hell, I agree with you.
But I can't take you seriously if you think bump firing has real world applications.

On the way back from a service call in My company supplied van, I pulled-off of I-90 at a local access next to the Jellystone River East of Livingston. I decided to take a little break & enjoy the Great Outdoors by doing a little bump-fireing with My 7.62 AK. I locked & loaded a 30 rd mag & then looked up-stream & saw the coast was not clear as a drift boat was approaching with 3 fish-killers aboard. I contemplated putting "Boris" back in the van...but no, I stood on the bank about 10ft above the waters edge with My trusty black Polymer friend hanging at My side in full evil Black Rifle profile. As they drifted by I contemplated a friendly smile & a "How's the Fishin'" comment...but no...just My best "Steely-Eyed-Defender of Democracy" stare as they floated by barely 30ft from Me. I noticed they had stopped casting & stared back. After They had gotten a hundred yds downstream, I did My first perfectly executed 30rd bump from the hip! It created a 6ft diameter white, frothy hole in the river about 30 ft in front of Me with a 20ft high geyser. I looked out of the corner of My eye towards the boat & saw 3 pair of eyes the size of dinner plates! I was hoping that at least one of them was some Libtard Flat-Lander! I then got in the van & drove away & got back to town just at 5PM & went straight home & not back to the shop. Perfect timing on a Friday afternoon!

The (Wiley) Ol' Crew Chief

Note: The joke was on Me as I was down-wind & the geyser soaked Me head to toe.
