    Any citizen can buy a full auto weapon if they can afford it, aren't prohibited, and pay the taxes.

    I'm trying to take you seriously but you are asking some juvenile questions...

    It may depend on the jurisdiction, but generally being a cop doesn't permit you to get Class III firearms (or related equipment) any easier than it does anyone else. Why do you ask?

    the reality of full auto is that its one hell of a lot of fun. thats why the libs hate hem so much.

    they are VERY difficult to employ correctly, takes in great deal of training and personal skill. normally for the average nub to full auto, only the first 2 or 3 rounds hits anything. the rest are wasted. thats why the us military went to three round burst.

    if you can afford one go for it. tax tamp +anywhere from 5k$ to 30k$+

    Why, is that your criteria for becoming a Police Officer?

    I was curious myself if LEO's can buy new manufacture select-fire firearms.
    I know that LE agencies can but not sure about individuals.
    It would be much more affordable for them than purchasing one that was manufactured and registered before '86

    Full auto firearms not already registered with the BATFE as of May 1986 may only be transferred to a Law Enforcement AGENCY, Military, or to another Class III dealer that has a right paperwork. Simply being a law enforcement OFFICER does not do anything for meeting the 1934 National Firearms Act.

    Yep. What he said. But seriously asking continuously strange questions like this is starting to sound a little troll like. Relax and read, you'll find most of your questions have been answered from recoil to how you can buy an NFA firearm.
