Going full auto

I want to go full auto. Where would I start. I live in Alabama. Who do I call, what do I say, to be able to legally own a full auto gun. Ive had my eyes on a PPSH and A MG34, but before I even go gathering up the cash for these beautiful peices of equipment, I need a full auto permit.

Check the NFA section.

Read NFA FAQ for information on owning machineguns.

Your odds of getting a PPSH are about zero. You might find a MG 34 for $50,000 to $100,000.

A PPSH 41 can be had for $12,000 to $15,000 if you can find a transferable one. There are very few out there but I have seen one for sale before.

You buy the guns first, then you do the paperwork to possess them, like others posted you have picked about $60,000 worth of guns for your first purchase, so if you don't have the money now I don't imagine you will be saving up for them.

Here are a couple dealers in your state that can find you a gun and get you started.
