View Full Version : Las Vegas - MP40 SMG

I was in Las Vegas last weekend, went to this gun store & shot their MP40 for $35.

http://www.thegunstorelasvegas.com/

Its $40 for 50 rounds (2 magazines of 25) or $60 for 100 rounds, but if you take them the coupon-ad out of one of the local magazines they give you $5 off.

Its full-auto btw (not switchable), but if you lightly squeeze the trigger & let off it'll pop off 2 rounds on average, occassionally 1. But I had to let her rip with the 2nd magazine just to see what it was like. I did well too. All 50 shots were hits; mostly head & chest shots.

Its worth every penny if you like guns. Its probably the nicest gun I've ever fired. I highly recommend it. Its not every day that the average guy gets to see a piece of WWII history like an MP40 in person... much less get to touch it AND fire it! So if you're ever there, go check it out! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Five dollars off a machine gun rental... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Living in a country that has a total ban on the private use of firearms, this ad looks like from another world! Not sure what to make of this...
But I must say I've never touched a handgun or rifle after I left the Army in 1987 and I never felt I miss out on something.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I'd love to get my hands on an MG42 and a full box of ammo. Doubt I could afford it, though. Living up here in the People's Republic of Canada I'll definitely not get my hands on one either!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Well, ??this is certainly a thread that will produce a wide variety of responses!

I own several select-fire weapons, as a consequence of holding a Class II Manufacturer?s license for over ten years, and I would like to point out one thing concerning the legal ownership of Title 2 weapons in the U.S.

As a group, those people who own legal, ?papered? Title 2 weapons have the best record for observing all related laws, when compared to any other group of firearm owners.

It really stands to reason: ???.After you?ve been photographed, fingerprinted, investigated, taxed, and essentially ?married? to that registered weapon, it?s VERY unlikely you would ever consider using it for any criminal activity.

Yes, ???..It very nicely illustrates the fact that people CAN own, collect, and shoot military weapons without becoming ?A Danger To Society?.

Can you enlighten us as to what the American classifications on firearms are? Here in Canada, firearms ownership is much less than in the States. Automatic weapons are, as far as I know, almost totally forbidden, with the exception maybe of genuine collectors. Handguns are also almost totally out and are tightly regulated [unless of course you are a criminal; regulations have done nothing to prevent the flood of handgun crimes lately.] Farmers and hunters are the largest block of firearms owners, for obvious reasons. Their weapons are mainly long guns, single shot actions and I think the capacity of the magazine is regulated as well. I don't know the ins and outs of the law as I do not own any firearms nor am I licensed to possess them, in spite of competency with them as a result of past military service.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

In the U.S. there are three basic weapon categories:

?Title One?, which includes all normal civilian arms like sporting shotguns, sporting rifles, and handguns. Semi-auto versions of military arms also fall into this category, but some states place additional restrictions on those.

?Title Two? includes weapons capable of full-auto fire, shotguns with barrels shorter than 18?, rifles with barrels shorter than 16?, and sound suppressors. These are sometimes referred to as ?NFA Weapons?, after the National Firearms Act of 1934.

?Curio & Relic? is a category for weapons that are old enough or unusual enough to be considered only as collectables, and not practical weapons.

A forth group, called ?Destructive Devices? covers any firearm over .50 Cal, bombs, flamethrowers, and chemical weapons. This category is a bit weird, as the restricted bit can vary from one weapon system to another: ?.For example, a 2.5? bazooka is considered a ?Curio & Relic?, but a live round for it is still considered to be a ?Destructive Device?.

title 3
class 3
is fully automatic physicatric evaluations and investigation of record are required (i only know one man with this) you must have each gun licensed for $200 tax and a 1 year waiting peroid on each gun is usaly what happens. you also lose the right to a search warrent since the police can always say they are searching your house to make sure the weapon is under lock and key with all the papers beside it. you are but on the fbi watch list for life and it goes 1 one on your file. truth is it is not worth getting this license<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I just bought a 50 Cal BMG Sniper Rifel. Id say my single shot 50 Cal is way more dangerous then a automatic weapon just because of the wide variety of ammo loadouts. Ive never had a gun that can fire standard FMJ ammo then be able to switch over and shoot a Armor Piercing Incendary round the next shot. Not only that the gun can effectivly shoot 2 miles. However for best results 1000 yards is more realistic producing a 6 inch group. Needless to say owning a gun like this comes with a great need for resposibility. Used in a resposible way it leads to as much fun as sinking ships in SHIII http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (especialy when you target propane tanks with incendary rounds) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif <---- I dont really do that you know http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Of course not. The canadian government wouldn't want to endanger the welfare of criminals. It's really a sad state of affairs.

Sorry, I take being an American gun owner for granted sometimes. It's just that I've grown up with guns all my life, mostly for hunting purposes (various rifles & shotguns), but have been no stranger to handguns either as many men in my family who weren't mechanics have either been military personnel or law enforcement officials. I was taught at a very young age how to shoot, to respect the weapon (safety) & that a gun is to NEVER be used against another human being except in a life-threatening situation (self preservation or to protect the lives of others against criminals). But just so you non-Americans know, very very few of us ever get to touch a fully-automatic weapon outside of the military or law enforcement agencies. So its not like we're all walking around carrying uzis & AK47s. Actually, I'm led to believe that is common-place in middle-eastern countries. That and grenade launchers. So if anyone wants to change the world concerning guns, that is where they need to start. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm a firm believer in the following slogans:
"If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns."
"Guns don't kill people. People kill people."

If you take firearms away from everyone, only victims of violent criminals who own guns will die by gunfire (and you would probably see this increase). Everyone else will be poisoned, beaten to death, hacked to pieces with sharp objects, crushed with heavy objects, die accidental deaths unrelated to guns or by natural causes. So removing guns from the equation only solves a very small percentage of deaths.

There are more deaths caused by automobiles each year than by firearms. Fact! So do we make owning cars illegal & force everyone to walk or ride bicycles?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Ive hit my share of animals with my truck, and never done it on purpose. I think about all the roadkill on the highways, thats allot of dead animals every year just from cars alone. I would bet that vehicles kill more animals every year then guns do as well.

CommanderFritz;

Everything you wrote concerning the ?hoops? you have to jump through to purchase a legal NFA weapon is more or less true; ??.but the reality of it all is that it is nowhere near as ?Orwellian? as you seem to fear.

I have legally owned NFA or Title 2 weapons for over 25 years; ??and I haven?t seen or heard from a FBI or BATF representative in over 15 years. Once they convince themselves that you?re just ?Joe Gun Collector?, they just don?t pay that much attention to you.

Sure, ??..If someone uses a weapon identical to one of yours to commit a crime locally, they may stop by for a brief interview: But I have to say that all of my dealings with ?The Officials? have always been characterized by extreme courtesy.

Hell, ??most of these guys will admit (once you break the ice and get them talking) that they think the stuff you own is ?cool?.

1 paper terrorist: scratch
Yeah, I killed 15 of your imaginary friends. But they deserved it. Not only were they backing up a terrorist, but they also won the Darwin Award for hanging out behind a target on a firing range while being invisible. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But you're absolutely right. You HAVE TO take everything in proximity to the target into consideration before you fire a single shot.

RULE #1: You NEVER fire on a target that has anything behind it that you don't want to possibly hit. Also take into consideration how far your bullets may travel. High powered weapons can often fire projectiles that can travel farther than the eye can see. That's why it's not a good idea to even fire into the air.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
