OK, so its a new year and the planning can begin on the "big buy" for 2005. I've been toying with a class III gun for a while, but have just never made the leap. What do the experts think is the best way to cut your teeth? Try a cheap MAC? They seem to be the cheapest way to get into full auto. What about reliability and investment value? I hear they break. STEN, S&W 76, ? what else is an "economical" full auto? I REALLY want a Thompson, now that I've shot one - but boy howdy! they are proud of those!!
