Fully Automatic Glock or Hand of God? We Report. You Decide.

File under: "In America, if it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing."

Then again, if the pistol fails you there's always the fully automatic shotgun....

Boys will be boys. Love the vid, but I prefer one shot, one kill. A well placed single shot is (usually) better than many spray-and-pray shots.

But isn't the guy Russian?

Glock Model 18. Perfect for home defense!

I have had the fortunate pleasure of shooting one of those.

I'm not a fan of guns without manual safeties, but that's me. Yes, a major tribe member swears by glocks and I have a fair amount of time shooting them. Plus, their is that geometry thing, the handle just doesn't feel right in my hand.

But then, I had the same problem with Stratocasters, they just don't feel right, and I prefer the feel of Gibsons, specifically, LP's.

(same with gurlz, I prefer Tucks over Fireballs)

Other than the fun factor I didn't see much use in those guns.

Full auto isn't all that Hollyweerd makes it out to be. Yeah, all gun geeks should shoot full auto at least once in their life to get the lure out of their system, then move on.

Again...I am 100% with you. I keep working on guitar, but marginal gains... Yes, shooting full auto is fun on occasion, especially when the guns are at my disposal at the range. Practicality??? Different story. I have always considered myself a rifleman, even over a hunter, although one skill complements the other.

I groove on developing precision hand loads that shoot MOA or better. I will not keep a rifle that will not shoot MOA.

Donald - the guy's American - lives in Georgia. The accent is for show.

I remember the article I read decades ago in SOF, a British security expert (ex-British Army) had a middle east client that had equipped his security force with all automatic weapons. Bullpups and even machine pistols.
He couldn't argue the client out of this choice so he arranged a shooting contest with the senior NCO's and he shoot a semi-automatic pistol. The first team (five to one) to accumulate so many bulleyes won.
He won. Handily. The second prize for the most noise went to the full auto team.

@Snake: "I keep working on guitar, but marginal gains"

Marginal gains are better than no gains. Think of the long term, and the enjoyment you get from the thing.

Here's a trick you'll find no where else, and it works every time.

Playing any instrument is dependent upon the player being able to "hold a tune". Most people cannot but anyone can learn.

Play a favorite song at a low volumn level and hum along with it. Pay attention to accuracy.

Turn the song off and hum it again, pay attention to accuracy.

Do that several times.

Now, while humming that song try to find the individual notes on the guitar strings. Use the lower strings, the bass strings.

Practice that a few times, then turn the song back on and try to follow along with those strings again.

Over, and over, and fucking over again. LOL

When you find the *pattern* you can then move onto the next step which is playing barr chords in place of the single note theory.

All of this is incremental, of course, as there is no way to go from novice to pro instantly.

Disabling fact of the day:
I played guitar for 10 years before I forced my self to start playing in an *alternating pick* style. Thats right. For 10 years I only picked on the down strokes. Up strokes didn't work for me, until I forced myself to do it and in a coupla weeks it became fluid.

I've been playing since I was 13 (a $35 acoustic bought new at Woolworth) and I'm 61 now and I'll always be a learner, never a pro.

If I could accurately play the intro to Van Halen's, Little Guitars, I'd die a happy man.

Full auto - one of the most efficient devices for turning money into noise.

But fun!
