I think I'd like to have the FN P-90. 50 rd mags, 48 layer kevlar penetration, and all that "ergonomically-goodness", makes me feel all tingly.

OK i admit my full auto experience is limited to renting a MAC 10 at a gun range and shooting a USMC M16a2 on a tigerr cruise years ago.. i must offer these two opinions...

Man maybe I watched too Much Combat with Vic Morrow and Rick Jason.. but Cpl. Kirby's BAR sounded WAY cool. Ane the idea of shooting a full auto 30-06 at 400-500 yards with 172 grain MG bullets or 150 grain tracers just makes me drool. Last gun show I saw 3 BAR full autos ranging in price from 18000-25000 dollars depeding on manufacture. (They even had a colt NAVY model)

As far as modern guns go... the dimunutive Bizon SMG from Izmash. a 9mm Makarov smg with a 66 round helical magazine in a shortned AK based reciever.. tasty. (would probably deafen you with that ak74 style muzzlebreak)
But it looks cool.

Ahhhh well maybe someday...

Well folks I have shot more than my share of full auto. All have been fun to shoot, some have been just plain exciting. The GAU GE mini gun, was the most, shall I say PLEASURE took me awhile to settle down after that one. It is something to put 1800 rounds of tracer down range after dark, looks like molten metal flying through the air.
Well, you said one gun though, that would have to be the M14E2. That is one firearm that has earned its place in the heart of anyone who ever used it. It shoots well and accurate out to several hundred yards and can fire burst fire as needed. It takes a very well trained individual to fire it in sustained fire though.
By the way for those of you who are interested, I am told that there will be an M60 tank at the Knob Creek shoot this October. The private owner has a couple of real rounds to fire from the main tube as well as live small arms on board. I am looking forward to this show as I love armor, the bigger the better. BTW one of the rounds is a HEAT round I am told. I am bringing my video as well as my still cameras, and hope to see some of you there.

Only one?! Then the only one would be the HK G-3. Unlike the M14E3, it doesn't take four months of training to become proficient with the G-3, and they use the same ammo.

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

Well, a picture is worth a thousand words....

A Steyr AUG. Or, of course, an MP5. As last resort (despite the fact
I'm Swiss) A SIG 55x series. They're also fun.

And - silence them!
