Machine guns whooo hooo!

As the proud owner of a legal machine gun, I would love to see a thread on that subject.
I own a Stemple 76/45 full auto sub machine gun shooting mags of 18 .45acp rounds.....lets talk machine guns (as long as it does not violate forum rules...if so, let me know!

Our range allows them, so we will have a class three shoot every couple of months, when you can see a whole ton of full autos. I will post some pictures after our next shoot.
here is my Stemple:

Our range allows full auto and will rent a full auto to customers. Full members get to shoot a full auto for free on their birthday.

That has always appealed to me....We have this older guy come to the range every Saturday morning with a sub and 10 minutes later he leaves like clock work...

He puts the target out about 10 yards and shoots a circle around the bullseye...When he reels the target in the whole target is intact except for the missing bullseye....

Have always wanted a full auto especially a Thompson.
I wanted to be like Vic Morrow in TV show "Combat." Only us old guys will know who and what I am talking about.

I grew up watching "Combat" reruns as a kid, loved that show. Especially how the exclamation point after Combat was a bayonet.

I was an automatic rifleman in the army and carried a BAR. Life expectancy in combat was four seconds and the added weight of the BAR with bipods and extra magazines didn't impress me at the time, but I would love to shoot one again.
Did get to shoot an experimental automatic while in the service ( believe they called it an M2 ) but it was too hard to control so they never put it into production.
We have several neighbor's who have private firing ranges and we hear automatic fire all the time. I've been told they are licensed for this.
Our clubs firing range does not allow full automatic but we have had problems people reporting automatic fire late at night on our range.
I personally don't have a problem with automatics at our range as long as they are legally owned.
Would also love to own a Thompson.

It was early sixties, a couple years before Vietnam blew up. They had m14's with select fire before I got discharged but by then I was in headquarter's as a squad leader for 4.2 mortars.
I only weighed about 150 lb's back then so when fired from the hip on an assault I would have to brace for each burst and on the ground with the bipods down I would have to crawl back up after each burst.
I know it scared the hell out of those on an assault line when I would fire the damn thing and I don't blame them. I was never in combat but came very close to going to Vietnam before I got out, had a lot of friends that went though.
Really didn't like carrying it at the time but like I said it would be fun to shoot today.
Never got the opportunity to shoot a M-16.
