Today we had an end of the year banquet for the juniors, and one of the coaches brought in his full auto H&K MP5 for us all to fire. He loaded up mags with 10 rounds or so each and I got to go through three times. Man that was flipping crazy. Never thought I'd be able to fully experience full auto, much less when I was just 15.

Lets hear your full-auto stories.
 
I got to shoot a auto .50 cal and a auto 40mm grenade launcher that shoots 350 grenades a minute. Both were pretty damn fun. [devil2]

ETA : MP5's are a blast.

Yeah seriously..From what I hear they catch about $15,000 a piece pretty easily.

Funny you should mention that...Anyone watch CSI tonight? An MP5 was the murder weapon, and I believe one of the quotes from Stokes was something like: "That's a $2500 weapon...don't see too many of those around here."

$2500??!! I'd have 2 if they were that cheap.

Didn't see this part at first...

I also got to shoot a S&W 76 at MRA one day. I was lucky enough to be there when another gentleman was there who had this baby with him. He had 36 round mags and a 100rd drum that he made a mag adapter for it. I shot a 36 round mag and it was awesome!...He then told me if I could fill the 100rd drum, I could shoot it...Needless to say, that 100 rounds were gone in about 8-10 seconds. It's a C&R, so I may consider picking one up some day.
 
I was lucky enough to shoot a supressed m16 recently, have shot FA before, but never with a can, If I could get either it would be a supressor

SM,

How loud was that? Did the supressor make a difference? Did it change the recoil?

I have a buddy that's getting rid of his... He's fetching 6K for it. So, if you want it, let me know...

SW76 for 6K,what condition..

with a heavy BBL,the recoil is really negligible anyway.With a can,a M16 is about as loud as a 22...just sounds like "crack crack crack"...They get really hot really fast firing FA though...

I fired a full auto MP5 last summer. The proverbial "friend of a friend" happens to own a gun store in NH, and he had one come in on consignment.

Asking price?

$15,500.

If they were $2,500 I'd buy at LEAST three.

Now, granted, if the unConstitutional laws against FA weapons were removed it might be worth $2,500...

If I don't have to work,I will be at Harvard tomorrow with my M4 upper and a M16 lower,no can though :( Just bring plenty of cash since I now know it's Kosher to charge people for the privelage of firing FA,1 buck a round should suffice...:)

My favorite weapon was the M60...

I have about 400 rounds that are begging to be fired.

SWEET! Don't you just LOVE it when ammo talks to you!

Happens to me all the time!

I shot my first Full Auto at the tender age of 17. M16A1 and M60 MG.

I want to thank you older folks here for buying the ammo (through paying taxes).

I do love Ma Deuce, though. Very reliable, but HEAVY. At least the one I've used for Uncle Sam was mounted on a track.

I too was probably 15-16 when I shot my first MG, had my green card when I was 19 (until 1998 just had to be 18), started the paper work for my first MG (an M11/9) less than a month after my 21st birth day, and the collection just grew from there...

Funny, wife and I were watching CSI last night too...When mention of MP5 came up, wife says "hey I haven't seen your MP5 in a while" I reminded her I sold it a few years back to buy the MP44...As far as $2500 MP5's, that would be a bit expensive for a PD gun (post sample) but kinda cheap for pre-may sample, and way cheap for a transferable gun.

It was about the differience between shooting with ears plugs and not, So with ears it was NICE, Not movie quiet. The can spread the impluse over a longer period, no crack no sharp boom, doesn't sound like a gun shot

The recoil was hard to judge, Since I didn't shoot back to back without a can,
Very controllable, probably about the same

Even on semi, shooting with a can was much more enjoyable,

If I lived in a free state, I would but one on every thing
 
One of my patrol officers was a Marine firearm's instructor. Every so often he would train units at Fort Dix and I was invited to go along every so often. They had 8000 rounds of 50cal. to use up as they hated to have to return it. Too much paperwork. I used up a few of the unit's personnels allotment.

Then they had a Mark 19 and let me send some rounds downrange. An old APC was taking the hits.

The weird thing was that the only item I had to sign for was the MRE. The ammo was just handed to me by the case.

We had several MP5's in our department armory. after a while, I stopped using full auto. Kind of got boring. The old Thompson SMG was much more fun! We also had one of the first M16's off the line. The department bought it in 1962. The sn was a three digit number and probably didn't have more that 500 rounds through it. Damm department traded it for peanuts to a Class III dealer years back for a few AC55K Ruger full autos whicj never worked from the day we got them.

Sounds like a blast.
 
Kalahari, If you enjoyed shooting that MP5 you should convince your parents to take you and your friends to the Hanson Rod and Gun Club's machine gun shoot that is happening on Memorial Day weekend. All I can say is bring your hearing protection because it's LOUD!!!! Not to mention you can rent just about anything that is fully auto. Hell, if you have the cash I think there will be a 20mm mini gun there. 200 rnds in a second or two.

My first experience shooting full auto was when I was in the Navy. I was on an aircraft carrier and we were deployed to the Indian Ocean for a 9 month stint. Well, to break up the monontony the senior officers did a rafle to allow someone to shoot an M-60 off the fantail. Well luckily I won. I got to shoot 500 rounds off at the trash that was being thrown overboard. You would think it would be easy to hit those bags of trash, but you'd be wrong. With the ship moving and add in the flow of the ocean, it became rather difficult. I did tear up some bags though. I was 19 at the time and hooked!
 
There's a place in New Ipswich, NH that'll rent you a variety of full autos for (I think) $15 plus ammo. I'm planning on taking my son there for his birthday.

Hey, Rockrivr1, do you also post on THR?
 
Rockrivr1 - We thought about going to that, and we very well might, but nobody under 21 can shoot [thinking]... Be great to watch though.
