    Of course we should. Gang-bangers have the danged things. Why shouldn't everyone else be able to have them as well? Besides, I'm not a fan of pick-and-choose constitution rights.

    yeah but doing that, you run the risk of say in ten years having a butthole bigger than the diameter of a "bloop tube" (40MM)

    No not that way

    that would make you a Title II manufacturer of a machine gun but without a license its a federal felony under 18 USC 922 or 924 (cannot recall, the code book is sitting on my desk at work and I am at home now)

I just learned about bump firing about a year ago. What a surprise. I still don't like to do it. Ammo is too expensive these days, but still this special stock might be worth looking in to, just for the heck of it.
    Firing guns on full auto is fun, but I wouldn't want to do it if I was actually trying to hit something.
