This is some real good bump firing.

    Im having problems bringing the video up (im at work). There is a device you can mount in the trigger gaurd that "helps" you to bump fire. Im not sure, but I think its called "Hellfire Trigger ". Can you notice anything mounted in the trigger gaurd on the video?

    I don't see anything attached to the trigger.

    They are obviously training to kill Americans with their evil AKs.

    I like the "And this is the policeman that came out to arrest me... He's going to show us how it's done!" part.

    Bump fire

    Bump fire is where you use the recoil of the rifle to reactivate the trigger, so the rifle moves back and forth a bit, and keeps running into your trigger finger.

    Bump firing is a way to try to mimic full auto in a semi auto firearm. It is accomplished by constantly pulling forward on the rifle, to keep constant preasure on the trigger. The recoil will pull rearward and reset the trigger for the next shot.

    Bump-Fire

    Ya'll realize that things like this gives the antis yet another reason to double their efforts to ban all semi-auto firearms...rifles as well as pistols.

    "Why, all they have to do is practice this bump-firing technique a little, and they can turn ANY semi-automatic weapon into a *gasp* machine gun! We MUST do something about this!"

    ...and they will...

    You can count me in as one of the group who thinks bump fire is irresponsible. There is the political reason, and then there is the fact that it's an inaccurate waste of ammo which involves giving up a fairly significant amount of control over where your rounds are going.

    Not to further fuel the anti's, but any idiot with a string can also turn a semi auto into a "gasp" machine gun, albeit more feloniously.

    Bah, in my opinion they don't need a reason. And then they'll go after any repeater, including the bolt, pump, and lever action.

    Respectfully, I'll exercise my freedoms without fear--or else they don't exist.

    Just my two mites.

    You make it sound like the only "purposeful" way of using a gun is to shoot benchrest.

    What tuner is trying to say is. You don't "kiss and tell" You especially don't put it on the net where it can be used against you legal or not.
    I don't care what someone does with their own firearm as long as the anti's can not use it against us as a group.

    Read my tagline. It isn't totally true.

    Some people here seem to think that way :scrutiny: . Lighten up and have some fun, the antis want your autoloaders regardless of if you bump fire them or not, some of you people amaze me with your paranoia. I rarely bump since I have had the local sheriffs dept show up before on account of a nosy little troll down the road calling them, and its a hassel to show them its not really auto.

    Amen to that.

    I can pull the trigger fast enough to mimic a machine gun anyway, if I'm not concerned with aiming. Unless we're talking belt-fed, there's no practical difference in the effectiveness of full versus semi fire for cover purposes - it just sounds more insidious to the antis to think that I can empty a mag in a few seconds with one pull of the trigger versus emptying a mag in a few seconds with multiple pulls of the trigger. :rolleyes:

    Bumping isn't practical, neither is full-auto, both are fun. Look down on bumping as "inappropriate" all you want, it just means we can trot out the old line about not needing a car that goes faster than 70MPH.

    Fun

    Got zero problem with havin' fun with guns. I do it all the time. I do have a few issues with moronic gangsta wannabes and snot-nosed idiots behaving irresponsibly and dangerously with guns...and puttin' it on the WWW for all to witness said behavior so that "they" can justify their approach of:
    "Yeah. We're doing the right thing. it's for the children and whales and stuff."

    And full-auto that isn't under full control is dangerous. Not long ago, a kid in a swimming pool at Carrowinds was killed by a 7.62X39 round that was fired from nearly a mile away. Seems some dipwad let his Hellfire device get the best of him...round went over the backstop...threaded its way through the chain link fence...and into a little girl's body. DRT.

    So, yeah...I gotta problem with crap like that.

    No. I don't have documentation handy, but you can probably google it up.

    The paranoia expressed by some of you makes me want to:barf: .

    You guys are the same people who will thump your chests and scream "from my cold DEAD HANDS!!!!" yet you whine over the anti's discovering bump fire.

    Bump

    Monkey...They're already aware of it. I'm just trying to point out that film clips of idiots actin' like idiots while they do it ain't gonna help.

    Googled the story. Later investigation revealed that the boys had pooled their money and bought a Hellfire at a Charlotte gun show. Need to have both hands on that rifle when it's tickin' along at 600 rpms.

    Sounds like a group of really intelligent, really responsible individuals. :barf:

    The video was about ordinary guys bump-firing, and then a police officer doing it too. Maybe you should stop projecting your own psychological issues or irrational fears onto everyone else. Banning bump-firing or banning semi-autos isn't going to make every jackass a safe shooter. There are idiots out there, always will be. If you cater to them, the lowest common denominator, then guess what - you're one of them now.

    re:

    I'm not projecting anything, Lucky. I'm pointing out the simple fact that the practice is dangerous, and the police officer was being as irresponsible as the other guy. Though the clip may well have been taken in a completely safe area with a 50-foot backstop...others that try it may not be so responsible.

    I'll stand on what I wrote. THR's mission statement is in promoting the safe,*responsible* use of firearms. Nothing that I saw in that clip qualified as either. If they want to shoot full-auto, they should go to a full-auto meet so they can learn the right way to do it.

    I can understand and respect the opinion that responsible gun owners need to be, well, responsible. If you're not responsible for where your bullets are landing--bump, semi, bolt or single--then you shouldn't be shooting.

    I also understand the idea that we should be aware of the image we project.

    The anti's have been beating our pants off on the propaganda front for years.

    I do get awful frustrated with the "skeet and trap crowd" not covering my back in regards to my black plastic guns. (Why the heck don't they just use single shot shotties anyway? It's just a clay target! :neener: )
