Hey now, I watched the last Rambo movie and he killed a couple hundred guys with that 50 caliber in a minute All kidding aside, when I had the gym there were a group of a half dozen guys who all had full auto weapons. They invited me to go with them many times, I never did, but if you pay the tax, or stamps, whatever they call the fee down here, you can own an auto or suppressed weapon. Getting a judge or high ranking local LEO to sign off in Florida, isn't a big deal. It all depends on where you live and who you know, "like everything else". I don't claim to know the exact procedure or cost, but it's not that uncommon down here as in other states. I never went because the cost is prohibitive, you can spend a grand on ammo for an hour of shooting. It's a little much for the average guy, but if you have the bucks, it must be fun to have one of those.
