Just curious who here has experience with Class 3 Weapons.

Not the B.S. Spring trigger or anything like that, but a REAL fully automatic rifle, pistol or otherwise...

Post up!

So far I have fired:
-HK MP5 in 9mm (Single, 3-rd, Full)
-Spainish CETME (HK Clone) in .308 (Single and Full Auto)
-Mac 10 in 9mm (1-full)
-Colt AR-15 (M-16) in .223 (1-3-full)

I'd haveta say my favorite so far was the MP5.

Just wondering if anyone else out there has/had the same interest :)

Is there a place in Dallas to shoot/purchace machine guns?

-Sean

I count myself fortunate to have fired:

mp5 in 9mm
M-16A2
M2 (Ma duece) in .50

and my favorite of all.

Bowling Ball mortar. :D
(Short barreled tube, add a LOT of tamped down black powder and a brunswick 18lb bowling ball on top. Stand back and ignite with a model rocket igniter. If you thought a black powder rifle was loud, try 10 ounces of it in a cannon.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

Bowling balls literally whistle / shriek as they fly through the air for around 1/2 to a full mile or more. Yes, we were waaaaaaaay in the country :D Nothing to hurt/damage for miles.

Probably the coolest thing I've ever shot in my life.

Fullauto is against the law and I know no one here would break
the law......now hell fire devices are legal. Besides full auto is in
most cases useless. The barrell rises up to fast.....rambo movies
lie. Single or three round bursts rule......full auto fun but inefective.

I have:
Glock 9
Mac-91
SKS
Shotguns & stuff

I want a FAL I shot one once they ROCK!

my father is a "gun nut"

he owns a .357 target pistol, and goes to plate matches. you shoot 5 plates (elevated about chest level at 10 yards distance) as quickly as possible. VERY hard to do!

he also benchrest shoots, which is his love.

now, that being said, my father has been friends with many other "gun nuts". Hal was kind enough to invite myself and my father out on one of his "auto-days". hal happens to collect things like automatic weapons and a liscense to own them.

i had alot of fun that day!!!

as long as you have the correct qualifications and liscenses, you can own an automatic weapon. the liscense is expensive, but it can be obtained.

I stand corrected I guess but please explain what permit you are
talking about.

I have NEVER seen a legal Fully Auto non-military firearm?

Come on with it? Cause now your talking fun!
Machine guns, suppressors (silencers), short-barreled shotguns, short-barreled rifles, and any other weapons (AOWs) [e.g., flashlight guns, pistol grip short-barreled Mossberg-type weapons] are classified by the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934 as Title II weapons.

Generally, you must meet the following FEDERAL requirements to own a Title II NFA weapon:

-You must be a U.S. citizen over 21 years of age.
-You must live in a state that allows Class 3 weapons.
-You must be clear of any felonies as verified by an F.B.I. background check.
-You must submit a fingerprint card and two passport photos, which are kept on file by the BATF.
-You must obtain a signature from your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer verifying that you have no local felonies and are mentally stable.
-You must pay a one-time $200.00 federal tax for each full-auto weapon or suppressor purchased.

To put it bluntly, no you can't go to Walmart and legally have them order you a M16/m203. If you do want a legal fully auto weapon you're going to be one more name on a very short list with the BATF.

alot of larger gun stores have automatic weapons. they are not diplayed and you need a liscense *obviously* to purchase one.

the liscense, if i am not mistaken, has to be given by the local law enforcement agency.

Learn something new everyday...............I was not aware of this.

I have owned AR-15's and such but never thought of having
a true M-16A3 (A3 isn't that the new one?).

Has anyone here ever fired the old Springfield M-14 on fully
auto. I did once as demo on why you don't.........yup I'm that
old they were still handing those out when I first went in.
I had my left arm pressed across the top of the stock and
let it rip and that thing came up so fast. The spray was
at a range (port Heuneme CA) by the ocean and the rounds
went from the beach to the water to the sky. M-14 good
weapon TONS of knock down power on both ends.

Crap, forgot about that one. We did a trial firing one day, just to show us how it felt to shoot something like that compared to the M16's of today. I wasn't expecting such a kick from it.

The only time was when I was in Boot. I know about morons, those idiots swinging weapons around like they were dancing with them.

Did you read my post on "Have you come close to dieing?" We were doing training out in 29 Palms I think and had some idiots in tanks firing 50 cals about foot above our heads. :eek: Scared me half to death, I seriously thought I was going to die.
