    I currently have 3 machineguns and if 922(o) goes away, I'll have at least 10 more.

    Cyphering for a moment. A Thompson is good for about 750 r/m (please don't pick nits). A 75 round drum is emptied in something like 6 seconds on full rock and roll. During that 6 seconds I will have burned something like $20 worth of ball ammo. So for the privilege of shooting a Thompson for 1 minute on full auto I will have used $200 worth of ammo. :eek:

    Naahh, can't afford it.

    I would. I'd like a "Tommy" gun with the 2 pistol grips & drum magazine, a MP5& a CAR15.

    I believe FA firearms are legal.

    I'd own one one if ammo were free.

    I don't think shoulder fired full-autos have much, if any advantage over shoulder fired semi-autos.

    If it is the mounted MG's that you are worried about, gatling guns and hand cranks for the semi-auto 1919's and M2's are perfectly legal.

    I'd be more worried about things like tanks and choppers and jets, myself, than any small arms.

    I couldn't see FA being any more than a novelty in a personal weapon. I'd take the option of semi auto and burst modes though.

    If it were legal.......

    YES!!!
    The reason they are banned is that they are too damn much fun.


    Then it ain't legal..

    If you can't afford a $200 AK because of the $20,000 BS that goes with it..

    Then it's not legal..

    Like it's never been said before :rolleyes: ...but these limitations, laws and bans on these guns or any guns is ridiculous. Do they really think that since Sha-Nay-Nay didn't pay the jack for the NFA stamp, they aren't going to hurt someone if they want, or that the Crips don't have automatics? Just like San Francisco's handgun ban. Do you feel safe knowing that the gang ganger with his stolen Glock knows YOU don't have a gun? Me neither. Geeze I got way off topic on a rant. Sorry guys.

    HECK YES I WOULD OWN SOME.

    1. H&K MP5, select fire, for HD and SHTF, and general shooting.
    2. Thompson...JUST BECAUSE!
    3. Some .22 LR, not sure which one. Suppressed as well. :D

    Full auto is effectivly banned, while it may be "possible" to get one, it is very difficult. If you ban the production and sale of new full-auto guns to the people they are banned no matter how many are grandfathered in.:(

    Yeah, but wouldn't use that feature much. FA is highly overrated.

    LOL I was watching that dvd on tv show they show on FX. The featured movie was "Triple X" and they showed a short clip of the making of the drug raid scene. They said it cost them $165 per second to shoot the footage of the helicopters firing 20mm vulcans at $5 a round.

    ("truth in advertising". No I don't really have a BAR mounted on that PPC:D )
    But a full auto BAR would be on my list if I could obtain one.;)

    If all the restrictions, ie NFA, taxes, permits, ban on manufacturing new full auto weapons were removed, if the prices dropped to realistic levels, YOU BETCHA! :)

    1. MP-5
    2. Browning BAR
    3. M240 GPMG and/or MG-3 (7.62X51mm version of the MG-42)

    absofreekinlutely i would!start with a glock18 then maybe a krink 5.45,a milled ak47 762x39.

    for fun a norell selfire 10/22 wouldnt mind detachable cans with the 18 and the10/22.

    in mo you can have selfire, sbs, and sbr. but suppressors and dd's are verboten unless your a badge or a sot payer.

    id even pay the 200 per if i had to for the above.

    The Serbu ROF would be one of the first things on my list
    http://www.serbu.com/rof.htm
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]





    The ROF has a fairly standard open-bolt type of action, and was designed and built primarily as an exercise in building a complete gun, mostly from scratch. The only parts which were bought and left unmodified are the flash hider and the pistol grip. Those parts, as well as the trigger, safety and barrel blank, are from an AR-15. Virtually everything else, including the springs, was fabricated. The upper receiver is made from 1.375 OD, .058 wall 4130 DOM tubing. The bolt is made of 8620 which is case hardened to Rc 55-57, with a case depth of .015. The lower receiver is a weldment made from a combination of bent-up mild sheet steel and machined 1018 steel. The barrel was made from a section of AR-15 9mm barrel, though any 9mm blank would have worked just as well. The main recoil spring was wound from .041 diameter music wire. The most unique feature of the ROF is the magazine well arrangement. The vertical line just forward of the trigger guard is where the magazine well may be separated from the rest of the lower receiver. The bolt was designed to accommodate a range of cartridges and magazines; the mag well seen in the picture allows the ROF to use British Sten magazines. The next magazine well to be made will accept a PPS-43 mag, which holds 7.26x25mm ammo. Obviously, a barrel change is required to complete the conversion. So what does "ROF" stand for? Rate Of Fire. There's an implied "High" in front of ROF. The idea is that this gun was designed for a high rate of fire. At this it does okay; it fires 9mm ammo at around 1200 rounds per minute. As of when these pictures were taken, the ROF has had over 3,000 rounds of ammo fired through it. Since the ROF was built after May 19, 1986, it's considered to be a "post-'86" dealer sample machine gun which can only be bought by licensed manufacturers, dealers, government entities or law enforcement. Needless to say, there isn't really enough of a market to warrant making the ROF a production gun.

    It sucks when the very first rifle I shot was a full-auto M16 when I was a kid, and now I have to shoot semi-auto my whole life?

    In short... YES I WOULD. :)
