I went to the Albany (Oregon) Full Auto Winter Fun Shoot today, and BOY was it fun !
There was a crowd of about 150 people on hand, and there was everything imaginable there. I personally shot an AK-47, Tommy Gun,
UZI, 1919, and a M-16. My 19 year old son fired all those and a full auto Glock 17.
There was a guy there with a BIG (loud) 50 caliber Browning, and that thing was awesome.
I was also very impressed with the range officers of the Albany Pistol & Rifle Club.
They made sure everybody had hearing and eye protection, and were very observent in making sure everybody was observing safe gun handling procedures.

One thing I did notice was the number of times the weapons jammed. The M-16/Ar-15's were the most frequent jammers, and most of the other guns jammed occasionaly. The AK-47's however, never seemed to fail. Makes you wonder about the designs our military uses versus what the communist (or former communist) countries use for their military.

Now all I have to do is talk my wife into letting me spend a little (LOT) for some full auto fun of my own.

We don't call the M16 "Jammin' Jenny" because it's reliable now do we?

May your lead always hit center mass and your brass always land in your range bag.

Sounds like a good time. The Glock-17 you mentioned was either a Glock-18 or a G-17 modified to Rock-n-Roll.

G-18's are rare in US.

Like Full-auto? Go to http://www.panix.com/~ericl/index.html

He's got a few Full Auto conversions you would love.
