You can always join the military or an LE Agency and play with the "fun guns" while getting paid.

There is a list of registered machine guns. Additional entries were not allowed after May of 1986. As long as the MG in question is already on the list, you can put a bunch of zero's on a check and own one, provided you are able to pass the background check and are willing to wait the 6 or seven omths it takes currently.

First, welcome to the forum. When you get a moment, stop by the intro thread and say hello.

You have two sets of laws to deal with- State and Federal. There are several states that do not permit private ownership of machine guns. The other law (as mentioned) is the 1934 National Firearms Act.

In a nutshell, you must be 21, not prohibited from owning an ordinary firearm, and have a REAL healthy checkbook. A LEGAL, TRANSFERABLE M16 rifle is selling for between $15,000 and $16,000.

You will need to find a Machine Gun Dealer in your home state, since the transfer MUST pass through such a dealer- they can help guide you in the process. It includes being fingerprinted, supplying passport photos, approval from local Chief LEO, application, paying a $200 transfer tax, and waiting about 6 months.

As mentioned, ONLY the full auto firearms that have ALREADY been registered with the BATFE by May 1986 CAN be legally transferred to a private citizen (which is why the price is so high- finite supply of them)
