    What would it be?

    Your budget is $20,000.

    I'd have to pick the MP40, they aren't making anymore of them, so I figure when we someday change the laws, it will still be worth much more than anything that can be manufactured new. Plus the history to it.

    No ? At all, an original B.A.R. Some good old fashioned full auto 30-06 fun!!

    MP40 first, and the M45 Carl Gustav (Swedish "K") as a second choice.

    9mm is still a LOT cheaper than everything else, and always has been, even back when it was all pretty cheap.

    HK MP-10, if I can dream - 10mm was made for subguns. If just for grins and giggles, either an MP-40 or a PPsH-41.

    Some guy on Florida Gun Trader had an M2 Carbine selectfire for only 4 grand.

    PKM. Ma Deuce is a close second but feeding the PKM is a lot cheaper.

    Tough choice. I loved shooting an AK-47 on full auto in Iraq. Lots of fun.

    Not nearly as fun as Ma Deuce, however, which would have to be my pick. Not sure if it falls under 20K.

    Certainly not the M-249. didn't care much for it.

    If I could find an authentic Sturmgewer, that would trump the AK, but ammo being a bit hard to find, the AK would still probably win out.

    the MP-40 though, might squeeze past the AK, but right now, I'm sticking with my original gut answer.

    If I could only pick one it wouldn't be free now would it? But regardless:

    If you were in a free state, the cost of a MG would not be so high because you could buy new - the only reason we have such high prices is that we can only trade with pre-'86 registered guns.

    My choice would be a burst-equipped M4 though.

    Thompson M-1. Accept no substitutes. :evil:

    I'd go for a full-size Uzi in 9mm; good for HD and SHTF scenarios. It's not as exotic as the previous choices, but eminently practical.

    I would say an AK-47. With wooden stocks, and looking all nicely beat up.

    Ze wife says ... "Tommy Gun"

    I've got a semi auto ma deuce and that's more than I can afford to shoot. I would probably go with a thompsan m-1.

    AR-15 lower. Spend the rest of the money on a bunch of uppers.

    I've shot them, they are fun for a second, I do live in a free state where we can own but I could not afford to feed one.

    I would have to say I would like a American Arms 180 M2 22LR Sub Machine Gun. Price around $10,000.00 but at least the ammo wouldn't send me to the poor farm to use it.

    Seen this demostrated years ago at Williams Gun Sight in Davison, Michigan during their LEO equipment show. Because of it's high rate of fire and low to no recoil, it bore a hole right through a car door in no time at all.

    Addition:I forgot that I had $20K to play with. The other $10K I would use to buy ammo for this toy. Seeing that I can get a brick (500rds) for little under $15.00, that equates to approximately 333,333rds. of fun! :D

    If one could be had for that price, a H&K MP5.
