    We'll pose the idea that the 86 MG ban and '34 NFA are revoked... full autos are the same price for you as for LEOs. We'll say that the courts allow them to be used in the last several cases.
    What full-auto would you pick for home defense?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH omg you have to be kidding...I love this scenario thank you. I would probably pick up an m60 or a BAR possibly an mp5 with the navy trigger group.

    MG42.

    It was good enough for the Germans, right?

    A Browning M1919 firing through a slot in each of the four second floor corners of my house.

    I can't think of any situation short of numerous invaders in which a full-auto weapon would be required, safe or practical.

    We've had this argument on THR recently.
    Summary:
    Most think MGs for home defense are useless, if not detrimental.
    Some of us, noting that select-fire guns actually cost the same as semi-only, want the option anyway.

    My take:
    I'd prefer an M4 with 11.5" barrel + suppressor. Compact, effective, tolerable noise level, make lots of holes fast if situation* warrants it.

    (* = Just because you (the objector/cynic) can't think of a suitable reason doesn't mean there isn't one. Better to have the option and not use it, than not and need it.)

    Anything that shot well in semi mode, after shooting in competitive machine gun shoots I am of the opinion that full auto is only good for converting dollars into noise.

    Atchisson Assault Shotgun (USAS) with a 20 round drum Magazine. Either OO or slugs. It would kick really hard. But it is just a fantasy. Not the best looking gun. Not even the best working. But it would be cool.

    somthing small and controlable. enforcer version m2 carbine. add a light to it and your set. i like the cartrige, its like a rimless .357 magnum. softpoints or hollow points of course.

    maybe a full auto shotgun would be cool but id assume hard to manage.

    Riot situation, home invasion, zombies. The list goes on. Besides, a shotgun is, in a way, close to a machine gun - it's spitting out a lot of lead with one pull of the trigger.

    Not limited to one FA item - you can have one for each member of the family. Give the kids American 180s, the littler ones the Vz 61 Skorpion in .32, etc.

    Good choice. If I were to go with a rifle caliber then the bullets would be soft point or similar.
    MP5 in .40 and Thomson are good choices as well.

    I'm with ctdonath. Give me a suppressed M4 with a burst setting. Can't think of much better than that, especially for preserving one's hearing while shooting machineguns indoors.

    I'm with Biker on the Thompson for home defense.

    Just for fun, would probably be a BAR or a BREN.

    I wouldn't pick a full auto for home defense, regardless of the price of the weapon. There is to much likliehood to overexpend ammunition (fire more rounds than is necesary), and expose oneself to increased civil liability- I bet a lawyer would have a field day even if the shoot was justified, especially with a sheeple jury that he only needs to convince a majority of.

    Hahahaha!:D This thread reminds me of funny things.

    How about shooting full auto all around your house screaming "Ju think you can take me! Ju nee' a whole army to take me! I burry you cock roaches!"

    Good times.:)

    Yep.

    Either a Thompson (with a light, somehow....that would be odd. Not for "tacticool"--I have a dark house at night), the P90, or the M2. Easy enough to use, "weak" enough rounds (not rifle calibre).

    Or maybe a FA 10/22 or something. Silenced.

    Actually, silence all of the above---I like my hearing.
