    i could get about 4 rounds off at an automatic rate and then i'd be pulling back on it too hard to let the trigger reset

    it could be my fault. i didnt have a belt loop on that side to put my thumb in so i had to hook my first finger on my belt. didnt feel right

    i have no idea what it is, but i'm guessing it's using the recoil to pump off the next round?

    yeah. you attach your thumb to your belt loob and use the recoil to push the trigger into your thumb which will fire it again.

    here is someone bump firing an ak

    its ALOT easer to hook your trigger finger through on your pocket, and pull back to where your jeans wont stretch anymore.

    the belt loop way is harder. i prefer the pocket of my jeans

    and yes 4 or 5 rounds is about right for beginners. the most ive gotten off is like 8-10.

    its pretty hard to get used to

    I've dumped the whole 20 round magazine with my mini14 and the belt loop.

    Get a caliber that actually has some recoil and it'll do it fine :mamoru:

    i've bumped an ak about 10 at a time but no belt loop or anything, just from the hip. i'm wondering if it would be possible from the shoulder, but not actually touching the shoulder, or something for better aim.

    You're the one here talking about "4-5 rounds is great for beginners"

    I didn't know bumpfiring was a skill that needed to be perfected. I heard to save money the police departments aren't issuing Selective Fire weapons anymore to SWAT, they're just learning how to bumpfire.
