    automatic firearms shoot, extract, eject, cock, and load. Full atomatic xcontinue doing this until the trigger is relleased. Burgess was the first with a semi-automatic that fired, extracted the empty case, ejected the case, and cocked the gun.What made it semi-auto the shooter had to close the ation and feed the next shell into the chamber. Originaly automatics were called self loading, which is what they are, check the patent papers.
