Anyone ever fired a full-auto Glock?

I shot full-auto M16, and I had trouble keeping it on target. I don't see how it would be humanly possible to control a full-auto Glock, so I'm wondering.

I had the chance to shoot on of these once at a range where you could rent them. As I remember it was a compensated model and went through ammo like crazy--spent most of the time reloading the mags. As far as controllability, it wasn't near as bad as you would think. Instead of a lot of rise, it pushed, more or less, strait back into my hand. Granted you still had to hand on tight, but after awhile it became pretty controllable with short bursts.

I got to put two of the long magazines through one when I was a guest at the CHP Academy in Sacramento.

I had a pretty strong Weaver Stance in those days but it still climbed on me (range was about 10 yards). Eventually found a slightly canted stance, signting down the right corner of the slide, allowed me to keep 4-6 round bursts on a silhouette. Certainly not in the middle but mostly on the cardboard.

Interesting experience but I wouldn't have one if they were legal and available.

I've not shot one, but I've seen videos. Yes, I'm just a weenie when it comes to the 18. Anyway, if you've got the time to search for the video, there is one at consumptionjunction.com that shows a guy shooting a G18.

hey that website is sweet. It's going to take me a while to work through all the videos...

A month ago I found a video of someone shooting "full-auto Glock". He has excellent control over the gun. I watched it again last night and it finally dawned on me: he's shooting an Airsoft Glock 18 (no gunpowder, shoots plastic BB's, battery powered).

ConjunctionJunction has a video with a full auto Glock with a FSS-G attachment, but I couldn't find any Glock 18 video.

Looks controllable. I imagined worse.

Look how the guy has to hold it.
that's not a normal grip.

also it looks like his muscles are going to pop out of his arms if he holds it any tighter.

Nothing but novilty.
