Thread: New Sig 5.56 for 1200 bucks...

What is a 3 round burst considered to be when talking SA or FA (I've always been under the impression that SA = one trigger pull, one shot fired)? Or is it it's own separate thing? Is it any easier for a civilian to get a gun with a 3 round burst option than it is for one to get FA? I did a google search and couldn't find an answer. If anyone has a "basic gun terminology and mechanics for idiots" website and wants to give me a link so I don't **** your forum up with retard questions, that'd be great."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

That may be true , but it's still a waste of ammo IMHO . I think ( in theory as I have never shot anything with full auto or with 3-5 round bursts except airsoft , bb,and paintball guns . ) something with the ability to throw alot of lead in the air is good . But the ability to shoot the same number of rounds in short controlled bursts everytime you pulled the trigger would be more usefull and less wastefull than a full auto .
But then again what the **** do I know besides I want to shoot something that has full auto one day ... but it is wastefull so I will control my satanic urges and go do something to protect the children from reality and harm .
* sighs and goes to pander for more strict gun control * If I can't do it right now , I don't see any reason why you people should be able to .

The HK UMP was nice when doing close in shooting, 2 rounds into a target head with a single pull was nice. Very easy to control, but it is a pistol round.
Full auto is really not that impressive until you get up into 7.62, then it becomes like a mythical weapon to smite the enemies of your nation and what not. But, I get all geeky over 7.62, especially in the M-14 version. I like it much better than any M-16 derivitive.

Fully Automatic, for the purposes of what can be owned by civilians, is defined as anything which can cycle and fire more than one round without releasing the trigger. Hence, a 3 round burst is still FA.
BTW, A standard Issue M16A2 can only fire single round or 3 round burst.

Why are we poo-pooing full auto? It has it's place - in a crew served weapon. Generally speaking, it's not to kill a lot of people, but rather to deny and enemy UNIT manueverability. It's called "suppressive fire," making the enemy put thier heads down, and reducing the accuracy of thier direct fires. US Army doctrine calls for the use of three-round burst mode once the enemy is on the verge of breaching the lines.
As far as full auto ARs and SMGs go, they have a very narrow tactical application, and anre generally reduced to "spray and pray" use in untrained hands.
You want a bitchin' AR, look up the Barret M-468, sexy, sexy rifle with a sexier round.

Also Garbanzo there is no shame in being gun iliterate as long as you will freely admit it AND not attempt to deny dangerous people like myself from owning atleast 15 firearms.
SFG the 6.8 is one of the sexiest rounds in a long time but it is yet to catch on with anyone but the speical forces guys and Barret. I would own one if it wernt so damn expensive to own and operate. Please talk to everyone you know get the US military to adopt it as a standard.

Some of my fondest memories as a kid involve plinking cans using a .22 with my dad. He isn't much of a gun person, but he taught me how to shoot a variety of rifles, and how to shoot safely. Love 'em or hate 'em, I think everyone should at least learn how to use them responsibly."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal
