At this point, since this thread seems to have steady, if not frequent, contributions, I should restate the question: Is full auto or burst fire a practical and useful thing for an infantryman's rifle? Ths is not about machine guns (light, medium, heavy or sub) nor about civilian use.
Most seem to think it is a Good Thing while others think it is never used and probably some think it is even a bad thing, wasting ammunition and so on.
Let the opinions continue to come forth.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
