Is an FN FAL on full auto just not a good idea?

Yes. You'll struggle to hit much with with the M16s 5.56 cartridge on full auto let alone the FN-FALs much more powerful 7.62 cartridge. There was a very good reason why it was originally designed was use a much lighter intermediate cartridge before America got stupid and threw it's weight around to get others to standardise on a cartilage that was too powerful for the needs of a rifleman.

what do you think the A stands for?
Fusil = rifle
Automatique = automatic
Légère = light (weight)

No its a fine weapon, auto or not.
The heavy barrelled versions are quite suitable for extended full auto and sport bi-pods. The light ones have too much muzzle climb.
