If your get in tight enough with a unit commander, you MAY be able to beg a range trip with the unit. I'm sure you can guess, that's very much against regs, but some folks are willing to bend the rules a little...

I've had my 15-22 bump fire on a couple of occasions. It'll spit out a quick 3 round burst or so.

But I agree with Robo for the most part. Full auto wastes money. Fun? Maybe. But since when have we needed to employ suppressive fire.

Those slidefire stocks are just an all around waste of money. First off they are more expensive then what they are worth " $350, seriously!!", i can think of alot better uses for my money, and second you waste alot of ammo for nothing, but to each their own.

Wait a few years on buying that slidefire stock,you might get lucky & find one @ a yard sale for cheap. If the BATFE dont ban them first?

As for bump firing,

You want to stay safe as possible? Find your local law enforcement firing range,at anytime (even when its closed) walk right in & pick a lane.

P.S. they also allow any types of converted full autos in there,have fun!!!

I have to agree. I don't get the obsession with trying to replicate full auto. Real full auto is one thing and I can see the value of them in a battle situation and I can see why they cost as much as they do for a civilian to own (that old supply and demand thingy). Anyone who has ever fired a full auto can attest that it is not at all accurate to just blast through a a mag in 2 seconds. They are fun for a little while, but I could see it wearing off pretty fast. That and the ammo costs. But whatever floats your boat I guess, it's not my money.

Now you know all the reason for you not to do it, even though Dillinger was pretty affective with a full auto 1911, so now I'll try an answer your question, hold the 1911 with your strong hand and with a Sharpie marker pull the trigger softly with your other hand, might take a couple attempts till you get the rhythm, good luck.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

Cuba, Thank you very much for you answer, I appeciate it very much. I was not trying to stir anyone up, but I had seen a vid on you tube and just wanted to try it for the fun of it. I'm 68, been shooting and hunting since I was 10. Had 6 years of miltary and always shoot in a safe place. I would not wish to hunt or use a firearm in this method for self defence. I realize it would not be accurate and besides that the cost of the ammo would be out of sight. Thanks again! Hawk

I have 4 of them, can afford the ammo and love shooting them. We have a blast when they are broken out. At shoots we haven't found any one who doesn't like shooting them. 2-10 round bursts or empty the whole mag. But owning 350+ guns I guess I'm just a child. Some of you are just ignorant of a good time. Why does Knob Creek have 25,000 people at the worlds largest machine gun shoot? Because full auto is a blast. Try it a few times before you speak out of ignorance.
