I was at a gun store with my father tonight, now instead of the Walther P99 we went in to buy he saw a VZ-61 Scorpion and is obsessed beyond belief! It carried a $2000 price tag, which makes me think it was semi-auto (the clerk was busy refitting the bolt to an M4 and could not be bothered for questions). First of all, I thought that by Maryland's laws this was an assault pistol and illegal. And if that is not the case, where can I find a full-auto and what is the average price? I'm trying to get a feel for the prices of both the full and semi auto versions of this gun so I can give the numbers to my father before he goes off the deep end and just buys it!
