H&K MP5 K Submachine Gun Demo
 
I was out at Asymmetric Solutions on Saturday with my son and they let us take their MP5 K for some fun. We could have shot at steel torso targets or paper, but there was a car just asking for a good spraying, so....guess what we spent most of our time shooting.

The MP5K is really an amazing little submachine gun. It is an HK so that means it is built like a tank, but so compact! And talk about fun to shoot. Wow. Obviously because it of the 9mm chambering the recoil is something you hardly notice but because it is full auto you do have to keep the muzzle rise under control or it can get away from you. I love the front foregrip. You just have to be careful to keep the fingers away from the muzzle.

Here's a video with some highlights from our time with it.

Great video. Shooting an MP5 always puts a smile on my face. You're in the St. Louis area aren't you?

I've had the opportunity to fire the MP5 a few times. If I were to get a submachine gun that would be my choice.

I had one for SWAT for 8 years. I swear I laughed like a kid all day after doing a mag dump.

Amen to that. My son had never shot any full auto weapon and the first time he shot it he, literally, squeezed off three, giggled, three more, giggled, three more, giggled.

Yes, I saw the origin of the phrase "giggle switch" in action!

It was pretty funny to watch. He just could not stop giggling.
