    Well,

    Since nobody has started a thread here yet then I suppose
    I will.

    My little gem is a IMI UZI Sub-machinegun which I also
    have the 45acp conversion for it, rate of fire is approx-
    600rpm. and a ton of fun to shoot.

    What's your favorite and which ones do you own or have
    fired in the past that you enjoyed?

    I don't own any, but my favorite to shoot is the good ol' M60 - kinda like them belt feds.

    Both Uzi's and M-60 are fun. How about the M-16 ? Those are fun.My neighbor has a 1918 Browning. Fun to shoot. Sten Gun, not too accurate, but fun to shoot. Anyone shot an MP-5?

    Best full auto I ever messed with was the .50 BMG while in the service. Had one mounted on the M-47 tank as anti-aircraft and also had a couple of ground mounts stowed in the turret for it and the bow gunner's .30 M1A3. We'd use the .50 to target mark for the 90mm main gun. Always liked the way that thing spoke with authority and the range it had. Great weapon!
    Keep off the Ridgeline!!

    I noticed Debo has a M-16 carbine up for auction on GB,
    a really nice piece, I would love to have that baby but
    the only way I'd be able to buy that is if I sell the UZI
    and he'll have it sold by the time all the paperwork
    got done on my end with the transfer.

    Man did I get a rush when I saw that puppy, oh well one
    day I hope to get one.

    Shooting machine guns is about the only thing I miss about the Marines (don't get me wrong - blew my knee skiing, out I went).

    Loved shooting the .50 & M60, got to shoot a tripod-mounted 50, single-fire, with a starlight scope, fun poking holes in discarded jeeps on the range.

    Also once selected during a fam-fire to shoulder-fire a SAW - Im a good-sized guy, 6' / 215lbs (then!). Instructor had me shoulder the piece, while standing, then kept instructing me to really lean forward / into it. He told me this three times, til I was practically falling forward, then he gave me clearance to fire - I squeezed, 800rds/min squirted out, and I was in a huge hurry to let off the trigger before the muzzle pointed at the sky / I fell backward. Not the safest thing, sure, but a hell of a way to keep 350 Marines focused on what was going on.

    Living in Kalifornia, and not having the cash / inclination to own machine guns, the only way I get my fix now is during semi-annual trips to Vegas - there's an indoor gun range there that rents SMGs - have fired a Thompson (thudthudthud , Uzi (kinda 'clackety'), and an MP5 (sweeet, smooth, soo easy to put fist-sized groups in the silhouette).
    $50 gets you 100rds. Expensive? Very. Worth every penny

    You bet Rayra, it can get pricey that way but oh
    so much fun it is!

    Every once in awhile I covert the UZI over to .45acp
    and it ain't clackety then, it's Brrrrrrrrrp and it's all gone!

    saw your Uzi discussion, sounds like a stiffer spring or lighter .45 loads would slow things down, but would it be enough to make a difference (and do you really want to?)
    what's the controllability on that thing shooting .45?
    Thompson is meaty enough to help, but must be using the stock on the Uzi? Can you get tight groups?

    Rich,

    Control is ok but nothing to brag about, if you aren't
    positioned right it will dance you back a few feet lol!

    If I could get the rate of fire down to about 600rpm
    that would be perfect, it's much higher than that now,
    or if I could get the rate equal to a thompson then
    that wouldn't be so bad.

    Grouping is not too bad considering the recoil.
