General Discussion / Guns, eh, don't you just love 'em?
« Last post by Jesso Yewno on Yesterday at 08:46:19 PM »

The footage shows instructor Charles Vacca teaching the girl how to use the weapon. He had her fire one shot on 'S' (single shot) before shifting the weapon to automatic ("A").

He then tells the girl," Alright, full auto.”

9-year-old girl accidentally kills shooting instructor with Uzi

This video stops just before the fatal shot occurs.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfMzK7QwfrU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfMzK7QwfrU</a>

Vacca was standing next to the girl when she pulled the trigger. The gun recoiled and it went over her head. "

Very few children, boys OR girls, have the physical strength to control the recoil while shooting on Full Auto.The same can be said for many adults.

The website boasts that at their range, "you can shoot FULL auto on our machine guns. Let ‘em Rip!”.

Others refer to Full Auto as 'Rock n'Roll'.

Youtube has dozens if not hundreds of videos showing 'accidents' at weddings and other celebrations.The majority are in the Middle East where everyone and their dog, make that goat, has an AK47.

I wish more people would comment on my posts or make their own posts.

I wish more would comment too. I refuse to believe everyone's on twitter and FB. But every now and then something in the paper says social media is busy with people talking about local stuff. Where???
