I read the first line and had to laugh out loud. While someone may not be up on gun laws and info considering he is young, isn't it common sense that most likely a 13 year old CAN'T own a machine gun?

On that note. Talk to your parents about your interest in firearms and if they allow it, learn the correct and safe way to shoot.

The kid is 13, cut him some slack guys. What 13 year old playing call of duty wouldn't want to get some of the weapons in the game, they are awesome.

He's lucky he has the internet to start searching/learing about his interests. I wish I had that luxury of such a wealth of information at that age, and call of duty!

Tack
There is a turret that fires caseless ammo, its called metal storm technology. This turret fires over 10,000 rounds a minute

It's questions and ignorance like this that means it's up to us with experience and patience to teach and educate. NOT to be mean, disrespectful, and condescending. Matthew likely didn't know a whole lot about guns and gun ownership BECAUSE he is so young.

Matthew, as I'm sure you've read so far, full auto smg are extremely expensive and not so easy to get. A person as young as you could have a hard time even shooting one legally, as some people like to scream "child endangerment" at three thought of a kid with a full auto.

Best bet, see if your Dad would be willing to pick up a "tactical" style .22 for you to learn with.

If you treat young people with stupidity they are gonna grow up acting that way. We need to guide them in the right direction,not discourage them from something that they are interested in, especially firearms. I will always love the Ruger 10/22 as a first rifle for a youngster, although im sure that he will love the S&W M&P .22 rifle since it looks like an M4

Mathew it sounds to me like you are looking at this weapon as a toy. It's great you are interested in weapons but your gettin ahead of your self get your dad to to get you a small 380 or 9 mm you gotta walk before you run I have been shooting sense I was 6 and am now 22 to and still own nothing automatic there fun but quite impractical....just food for thought.

Talk to your parents Mathew. While you can't own the gun you mentioned, let your parents know about your interest in firearms. Take a gun/hunter safety class to learn how to handle and shoot them safely and responsibly. I got into shooting when I was 13. It's a great sport/hobby. Remember. Guns are NOT toys. Life is a fragile thing and it can end in an instant with one wrong move. Save your money and get a .22. Something like a Ruger 10/22. Be safe, and have fun.
