    A question here. Is having a Bumpski too much to also install a red-dot scope? Would having the Bumpski make any scopes obsolete because of rapid firing? :confused:

    Not obsolete just kinda pointless, but I think a bumpski or any other bump fire device is kinda stupid.

    Inaccurate (usually), waste of ammo, expensive for what it does.

    Full-auto fire is dumb. Unless you're giving cover there is NO reason to do it other than to have fun. In a real war situation or tactical situation it should never be used. You have too much potential of hitting by standers and just too much can go wrong. I would rather be able to get on target rather than spread everywhere.

    Don't waste your $.. I just sold my SlideFire because its not accurate and you run through rounds wayyy too fast. It's a TON of fun, no doubt, but like I said, I sold mine after about a month..

    when you're bump firing, your optic will not matter because you won't be able to use it. Enjoy the full auto, don't worry about optics.

    when you're shooting semi auto, yes you can still do that with a bump stock, you will have the advantages of whatever optic you mount.

    is it overkill? no. is full auto practical? no. is it enough fun to be worth the cost considering you will have no class 3 prices or paperwork to deal with? absolutely. will it burn up a ****load of ammo? ohh, more than you can imagine! is ammo cost a deal breaker? hell no, that's what they make reloading equipment for. besides, who needs groceries anyways:D

    i beg to differ. full auo when properly trained is devastingly effective and accurate. this usually is achieved by 3-4 round bursts with shoulder fired guns and 8-10 round bursts with tripod or bipod belt feds.

    the military typically does not invest the ammo and time in an individual soldier to achieve that skill level so the myth that full auto is useless persists.

    Well I would prefer semi at anything over 150-200 yrds but full auto has its place.

    yes, full auto or burst, when the user is well trained can be effective at oh 50-60 yards and closer for shoulder fire rifles. for belt fed, such as the 249 saw or the 240g. small burst, but close to being full auto is great out to 350 yards. after that it's just supressive , making noise fire. at 200 yards give me a 240g, and 200 rounds. i'll give you 20 SECONDS of fun!

    Do you own one, ever fired one? I have fired a semilar one and with practice it can be very accurate. The full auto weapons were designed for suppressive fire, not accuracy. As most people say; Spray and pray.

    Better to have the option of supressive fire ability and never need it. than need it and not have it. The bump fire stocks can be locked so as to be a regular stock. If you wait long enough the decision not to have the option will probably be made for ALL of us! :(

    I would get the stock and the red and just lock the stock when you want semi

    Bump fire can be achieved with just about any semi-auto by lighting the trigger pull enough to create a suppression fire ability.
    There is no need to buy a special stock and by lighting the trigger pull you will help your long range accuracy.
    Putting a red dot or a scope on a gun that can be bump fired can help you put a short burst on target as long as the recoil of the gun is not too much. (pay close attention to the amount of eye releaf you have on the scope or it will bite you)
    My AK74s & my ARs with scopes can be bumped and hold tight enough to get 2 to 3 rounds bumped on a 10" gong at 300yds.

    Instead of spray and pray, I believe in aim and maim. No number of misses replaces one well placed shot.

    Adding a red dot to a bump fire is like putting lipstick on a pig.

    Bumpfires are a complete waste of ammo, and time spent st the range. I spend my ammo practicing, not aimlessly pulling the trigger.
    I wouldn't bother with it.

    But that practice is very expensive.

    Depends on your definition of expensive. I can reload 223 for less than i can reload 9mm. 17-20 cents/round for 223. Spend less, shoot more
