i have had an idea i got from a youtube comment. let me say i am in no way responsible for anything done with the information i am about to share. Had to say that incase anyone tries this.....

That being said would it be illegal if i bought a gat trigger ,mounted an electric motor on it with an on off button to make a simulated full auto? because it is not really full auto considering it uses the gat trigger and one round is fired each time the trigger is pulled.

that would be diplomatically correct but if the fbi ever found out they would find a way to punish that person. A couple of months ago I heard in the news about 4 guys in jackson ms that somehow got there hands on a tank round . So they got the bright idea to cut the round open with a torch (for the bullet the powder who knows). Needless to say the dam thing went off and put 3 in the hospital. The last one got questioned and now all of them face felony charges.
I say all this to get a point that no matter what laws are in place fa guns explosives etc will make there way in places where there is a demand.
Some people purchase these guns for way below the legal but know nothing of the history of it.
My best advice would be to find a camp or establishment( if one such exist) that, would allow civilians to fire legal fa weapons for a fee. if it hasn't been done that would be a very good idea for gun lovers and a good thing for our economy. Gas companies get enough of our money

To the posters just before me-

1. The electric trigger has been done. It is illegal if pressing switch causes more than one shot to be fired.

2. There are a number of firing ranges that RENT legal full autos for use on the range- for ridiculous prices. Or get to one of the MG shoots, like Knob Creek. Or, if you are 18 yrs old, raise your right hand, say I do, and I can send you to a place that will let you shoot full autos for free.

Jon- there are worse reasons. In my case, grew up listening to jump stories from an uncle that went into Normandy with the 101st.

Back in the 60's, can still remember hearing a drill sgt, frustrated with a clueless basic trainee that could not sort out left from right.

"Who ever told you that you could be a soldier?!?!?"

Well it wasnt the only reason. We had just started the buildup to operation desert shield and i had an epiphany sitting in us history class. I got up called the proffessor a g-damned communist bastard that didnt know his @ss from a hole in the ground when it came to life and history and left. He had started in on a us troops being baby killers in vietnam rant and how a desert war would be no different.

Went that night with my mom to play bingo and told her what happened and i was going to san antonio meps the next day.

I thought both she and my dad would be pissed at me for leaving college but they werent. Three weeks later i was in anniston alabama at fort mcclellan

My only regret was not going at eighteen

JonM, you have my deepest respect for your bold move. it's easy for some to criticise those who were or are there in a conflict, from the relative safety of classroom or anywhere but where your life is in constant danger. but you stood up and made a statement and enlisted in military and for that you have my respect, just as i have very much respect for all who have or are serving. thank you for taking a stand.

The war ended before i was done with training. No one expected it to be so fast. I ended up serving in hawaii

To this day i have almost no tolerance for socialists or communists

And i still love firearms for the freedom to stand up to tyrants they give. Whether that tyrant is an aging communist in a classroom or a woodchipper using dictator in a sand blown slice of hell.

well Jon that doesn't matter or lessen my respect for you. you still stood and and enlisted.
