To shoot in automatic gun shoots. Many cops, x-military and civilians like my self shoot in these events to keep our skills sharp just in case there is an invasion and the military needs back up. And these are semi-auto not full auto. Please know what you are crying about!
I used to shoot competition full auto, my take is full auto is one of the most useless weapons there is.
Unless you are going into combat,,,PFFFT,,,just a waste of ammo.
Even combat, my choice would be semi auto or bolt repeater.
Why does anyone need a Rolex watch or diamond ring? Why does anyone need a fir coat, speed boat, ultralight plane or motorcycle? Why do you need a car that can go faster than 80 mph or can quarter mile in less than 18 seconds? Why does anyone need 140 channels on their TV? It is not a case of what people need. This is the USA. If you want something and can afford it who is the government to say they can not have it because they do not "need" it? No one needs an automatic rifle but if you want one you should be able to get one.
