Hk Ump-45

Went to Totally Awesome Guns in Utah during my vacation. Rented an H&K UMP-45 submachine gun, and put 200 rounds through it.

I loved it. It's light, it's handy, and is controlable on full auto. Hehehe. That made it worth the trip alone!

Oh hell yeah. Weighs about 5lbs loaded with 25 rounds. Safe, semi, two-round-burst, and full auto. Cyclic seemed to be around 600 or so rounds per second. Pretty controllable if you leaned into it.

Good ghost ring sights, too. Stock had a bit of a corner on it; could've used a pad of some sort on the end, or a least a little dehorning.

The bolt only locked back once when the last round was fired; the last magazine that I ripped on full auto. I guess the reloads I was using (cheap stuff) weren't powerful enough to do it all the time, though it cycled each and every time.

And, the UMP-45 is strong enough to handle .45 Super loads. Heh, heh, heh. You know, for really laying on the hurt...

Somehow I doubt that.
