Is there any place in central Texas, that I can rent a Glock 18, to shoot? I've always wanted to to try one.

I doubt it... there are only about 6 in the whole country IIRC. At least transferable ones.

An FFL/SOT, which is what a rental place would be, does not have to have a transferable one.

Exactly. I don't want to buy one, I want to rent one. You can rent post '86 mgs, you just can't buy them.

They're fun, for the first few mags or so. The novelty of a full auto handgun wears off VERY quickly. I'll keep my ears open for anyone in TX renting them.

This is why handguns shouldn't be full auto.

Oh please. Just because one guy mishandled a firearm doesn't mean anything. Sarah Brady uses that false "logic" in regards to all firearms.

I didn't say that there was anything "wrong" with having one. It's just personal opinion that they shouldn't be. There are better systems for full auto.

+1

There are tens of thousands of school age boys running around with fully automatic weapons that manage to not shoot themselves.

As long as you are properly trained, the chances of an accident with anything are reduced to a fraction...

Please explain why. Maybe we all should believe the way you do.

There are also "better systems" for shooting S&W 500 Mags than using a 4" S&W revolver with beautiful, custom wood grips. Many people have gotten their face smacked by them. Should we get rid of those, too? There is no sane, logical purpose for carrying a 4" 500 Magnum by many people's definition.

I'm just saying you're treading on dangerous ground by many people's standards here. I know, I've done it, too. But I can see their point. If we start getting rid of firearms we don't personally feel a need for, we're acting just like the anti-gun crowd.

I'm not giving you a hard time, brother. I love firing full auto rifles. A Glock 18 interests me none whatsoever and I don't care about shooting one. Having said that, if one of my buddies had one and offered it up, I'd see what all the fuss is about. :)

Although it’s not a glock 18, my dealer brought the full auto glock, in the photo below, down to our farm in east TX last 4th of July. With the stock it’s not violent at all. Runs like a sewing machine.

I'm not advocating that at all. No where in any of my posts say that we need to get rid of any gun

I feel that for a auto handgun to be shot practically, it pretty much needs a buttstock, which throws it into the SBR catagory and is no longer a handgun. Even the MAC pictured above has a buttstock.

There is no such thing as an SBR machinegun. Once it's FA you can do pretty much whatever you want.

Sheesh! This one sure wandered miles and miles away from the intent of the thread...

Funny... I vaguely remember someone asking somthing like:

Is there any place in central Texas, that I can rent a Glock 18, to shoot? I've always wanted to to try one.

Are "Viewer Discretion Advised" and "There Are Better Systems For Full Auto" the names of SOT3 dealers or rental places in TX? If not, we may have strayed from the original question. :scrutiny:

If anyone comes up with the name of a shop that has an 18 or a converted 17 or anything related to the OP's question, PM me and I'll open this back up. Otherwise, if you want to argue the shoulds and shouldn'ts of machine pistols, start yer own thread. ;)


[Art and I seem to share an opinion...]

R3dundantC just sent me the following:

Glock 18C rental

Nowata Firearms, LLC.
Nowata, OK 74048

Might be a bit of a drive for you, but they have a Glock 18C.

A C-class USPSA/IPSC shooter can keep a full magazine on an IPSC target at 15 yards with a Glock 18. It's pretty controllable.

Jmorris passed along the following info:

Rcs Unlimited in Anna, TX has the one in the photo on my post. It's north TX but closer than OK.

Cool! :cool:
