we were shooting at a cardboard box. Nothing like watching it roll around and watching the dirt fly. I know i missed that box more than i hit it. Damn it sure was fun.

I have video i would like the post as soon as i can figure out how to post it....

If you're goin' that heavy-might as well go M60 at the hip!!! Never fired one...don't like the weight...(but I'm slobberin' all over myself for a Storm .45 Carbine....) Those old guys who used those had some muscles....whataload!!!

That is sweet !!!!

I have never got to fire anything full auto either. :(

I got to say Velvalco, you need to put some sun screen on those arms...you look like a lobster firing a tommy gun. :D ;)

That looks like fun. I had a friend, back in the 90's that had some kind of 9mm full auto pistol. That thing was a riot......I couldn't hit anything with it, but it was fun tryin'..... :D

I could have handled that too. Would love to, just once, fire a Tommy Gun & an MP5 on full auto. :twisted:

Hey, there, SgtKnuckles!!!! Good to see you....I'd like a Marlin Camp Carbine in .45--or a Beretta Storm, but I'm too old to carry that heavy a gun much...or too lazy...I'd trade the full-auto for lighter weight...I'd have a hard time feeding the Tommy Gun......

If someone real came up with a stick clip 30-round semiauto rifle under 7#...it'd be a dream....primarily for defense but what a hammer to wield...my 15-year-old was in love with the Tommy Gun on internet...took him to a cop's shop and let him hold a 1921 replica and another model real...he changed his mind...still loves my .45s...slow and heavy is a good thing.....did you have trouble holding it down? I've heard it rises and goes left in full auto....

i didn't have too much trouple keeping it on target or should i say towards the target, but it did seem to rise more on another person who fired it.

I had the 9---seemed like a toy...looking for a .45---If I remember, they used Colt mags? Had some issues with stock splitting from recoil..I'd take a chance to have a .45 shoulder arm....
