They're only a problem in some semi-autos.

+1 what Microgunner said.

Load up and fire away. Just bear in mind your particular rifle may not like them as well as other hi-vel offerings.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

What is the issue with semi-automatics? I haven't shot stingers in years and can't remember if I shot them from a bolt or a 10/22? But I am curious now that the point was brought up.

The Stingers use a slightly overlength case which may cause chambering or extraction problems with some firearms.

nbg22092 - as a prior insane person (Navy&Army) I'd caution you of a few things before you get your first rifle...

If you live on base, all firearms AND AMMO must be kept at the base armory, not in your quarters...
hence its a PITA to go sign 'em out, go to the range, have fun, then take 'em back thru security and then to the armory...
not to mention what sorts of hades you go thru if you get found with a firearm or even ammo in a barracks...

On the upside, if you have an on-base range & armory combo, you can sign out a lot of FUN STUFF if you get in good with the Armourers
(That means full-auto!)
But start small...get a shotgun first...go shoot some skeet...ammo prices from the armory are LOW!!
(NAS Millington has a top-flite skeet range...for example)
As they get to know you & you show responsibility & respect to the weapons, they let you do more & more...
take every weekend class they usually offer qualifications and training prior to quals on a regular basis...

Also, when you move, the Military will transfer your firearms for you in CONUS from Armory to Armory...
which keeps those schmucks in moving from stealing 'em or otherwise screwing 'em up...

And Good Choice in picking the Military for a career!!
Think of it this way, you are probably around 18-ish after 20 years, you're looking at a Government Pension at 38-ish!!
Then you no longer are working to pay the basics...your retirement covers that nicely...
so then you're just working to pay for your bad guns or redheads
