    I have to say, I am not so impressed.

    There were about 20 AR-15s and a hand full of M16's. Not everything was full auto. There was a silenced MP5 which was cool too

    TONS of supressors on anything from a 308 to a 22 and everything in between. Its really cool to shoot without ears and not worry about it.

    The 22 rifle I played with was so silent I wasnt actually sure if it fired or not.

    I have some video and pics but dont really want to be roasted so Im not going to bother posting them.

    I will say my ability to chase a bottle @ 50 yards with an M16 in single fire was amazing! in Bursts it was pretty descent too..
    :p

    I have always wanted to do this, but rental is sooo expensive, the placed I have seen wanted $50-75 for the rental and 100 roudns which on full auto last what? maybe a min?

    It depends on restraint, I used 2000 rounds over 8 hours but most of the time was reloading. I'm not a big fan of just spraying as fast as you can, im a big fan of spraying as fast as you can when you can actually hit a target.:bigthumb:

    This was a FEDERAL DNR range and since the parking lot is closed for repairs it didnt cost us anything.

    Never found the fun in just shooting an auto down a range. Give me something to tear apart like a reactive target/watermelon/TV set etc.

    It was pretty taxing on the rotator cuffs but lots of fun.

    There was a steel plate @ 110yards that was ringing under full auto fire. It was a very cool sound when you cant hear the weapon!

    Neither of those look like bad cans!

    Not when he said that they had a suppressed MP5 and lots of cans. That's not Bullseye.

    Full auto is a waste even the U.S. Military thinks so.
