thanks for the tip on how to recognize the 'switch' difference.
as a youngin', i was exposed to many fully-auto shooting adventures, but mostly verbally
i did get to see a Tommygun in action but i certainly didn't 'learn' anything about it.
by the time i was interested in guns, the assault ban was well underway and i didn't know anyone who would teach or share such info.
last year i read about a local event i'd like to attend this year if they do it again.
it was a (for the lack of exact info) gathering where owners of fully auto units shared them with the public who wanted the experience.
kinda like gun appreciation day with autos

That is perfectly legal in New Mexico, too, with some restrictions on where.
I don't know that I would try it by myself. Maybe if there was some sort of group organizing to make a point..
So...Shall not be infringed, IF you can pass our mental competency test?
And I believe the right answer is, "There is no such thing as a 7.62 x 36"....

Maybe it is where you live.... It seems obvious that open carry is somewhat common in your neck of the woods. Kind of like when I go to a gun range it seems everyone has guns, out in the open, mind you...scary stuff...
The whole 3 round burst thing, it is still considered a machine gun and needs a class III license, and most likely a gun pre 1986....oh BTW if it is legal it is worth 10,000 to 20,000 so I don't think we need to worry about the bad guys having them....
