I only had two when I was in (not counting that Vietnam Era POS in Basic), both were A2's, both were Colt.
My weapon in Basic was an A1 with the traingular grips and still had full auto, the A2's just had 3 round burst.
The most fun I had in basic was on one of the live fire ranges. We had to burn through 6-30 round magazines on auto as quickly as possible, including swapping mags as quickly as possible.. Fortunately I didn't have any missfires or FTF, etc, mine all went through with no issues. Some of the guys had to clear their weapons several times.
Well, the m60 live fire was fun too.. The live grenades could have been more fun but they were so safety oriented it was hard to enjoy it.
After basic the most fun was firing the MK-19.. That thing was bad ass.
