You bring up and interesting point Ron. Where does the confusion come from between semi- and fully-automatic firearms? The media gets away with calling all sorts of guns full autos which spreads such confusion. "Fully automatic" are huge buzz words among the media and it is this kind of stupidity that spreads to the masses.

I have hunted with my FAL, as well as my AR. I may even get the 6.8 or 6.5 upper for the AR and use that. Not that I see a lot of hunters, but you do get some strange looks now and then.

I did get some funny looks one time when I was squirrel hunting with the AR and a .22lr conversion upper. They thought I was hunting with .223..

Browning BAR, Browning Auto 5, Remington 760 (sorry, drawing a blank on the Remington semi auto rifle model at the moment - i am getting old, but I think it is the Model 760) Remington 1100/11-87, Mossberg 9200, SKS, FAL, M-1, M-14 ... just a few of the great semi auto hunting arms.

It really is a problem. Talk to a bunch of city folks and you'll find that a large number of them automatically assume you are talking about something that would be suitable mounted on top of a tank the minute you mention semi-auto. The media is more than happy to feed them this bs, and they are more than happy to consume it.

IMO,Semi-Automatic rifles are the way to go as far as hunting goes,I fare pretty well with my Mosin..I've missed my fair share,I've wounded,I've downed with one shot,just depends on my mood and how my day's going (Aka if my wife's nagging me before hand or not)...But if I do hit..and wound,and it can still run,by the time I've fed a fresh round into the chamber,my target,is gone..and usually,I don't find it...I'm a horrible tracker..so all you guys that hunt with a muzzle loader..hats off to you gents,you're doing something that I can't really do yet!...but back to the topic..
For people that sit in tree stands with a SMG or something...thats...putting it bluntly..retarded...every weapon has it's place...SMGs and MGS places are at ranges or in war,NOT hunting deer..if were doing that,we may as well break out some RPG's and hunt with those as well..I hope that the people that Hunt with sub-machine guns and machine guns see the error in their ways before one day,something does happen to where the only thing we can hunt with are spears...
Why try and kill a mosquito with a cannon when I fly swatter does the job,and more effeciently?...I suppose to each their own right?

Default Gotta jump in here

There is no such thing as a semi-automatic weapon. A weapon is single fire or it is automatic. A 1911 45 cal. colt is a automatic pistol. You load the clip, slide it into the magazine, pull back on the slide and jack a round into the chamber and you can continue shooting until the magazine is empty. It loads the next round automatic. The next classification is machine gun. Not fully auto. I am probably gonna catch some flak here but what the hey> Every time I hear a nimrod newscaster describing a mad shooter using a full automatic weapon and shot so and so at point blank range, I get angry because the guy does not know of what he speaketh. Point blank is another term that is thrown around. I do believe that point blank for a colt 45 auto is around 25 yards. Point blank for my 308 Norma Mag is zeroed at 258 yards.

i try to use a semi auto every time i hunt!!!!!
this keeps the dems from baning them in my mind(no they are hunting weapons and not the street gang gunz)
for coyotes i use a mac 90 or better known as the AK
for rabbits and squral i use a 10/22 or a semi 12 charls daily
the semi 12 is also good for bird of all sorts
but for big game i prefer the BAR Mk II cambered in 300 WM
i also belong to a one shot club out here in the desert but they all look at me funny when i refuse to swap my weapon for like a breach gun (they also send me with a partner to keep an eye on me lol i might not b the type for there group im kinda out there and dont have the same views as many of them but they dont stop taking the meat when i give them some lol (they missed) and they do like my recipes for javelin's)

Hey, now. If hunting small game, I take my single shot 12 everytime. There is nothing wrong with having to hit what you are shooting at the first time you pull the trigger. lol
