What was the First Automatic (and/or) Suppressed Weapon You ever fired?

So as I was leaving my part time job at the Range today, I noticed something new in the plexiglass case that holds the Third Safety Setting firearms . It was a MP5-SD2 that arrived over the weekend. We had 5 minutes before closing so I went ahead and tabbed a target and some 9mm rounds and took her for a spin. OHHHH was it sweet! No need for Ear Pro and full auto to boot! I need to hurry up and get a real job so I can get my class III and buy my own!

Anyways, What was the first full auto or suppressed weapon you ever fired?


(ps phone is dead, pics to be added in the morning)

The first full Auto I ever shot was an MP41. The only full Auto I ever owned was a 3 caliber Fleming sear (used it primarily in HK91 & 93, though it did a few whirls in 94s as well).

The first suppressed weapon I ever shot was Ruger 10/22. I own 2 cans, a YHM phantom 7.62 that I use on AR15 and AR10 rifles, and a YHM Cobra I use on a USP Tactical .45.

Technically, an M16A2, but I never got to use it on "group therapy"

Suppressed;

m4 with OP'S INC can
Colt Lightening with Highram Maxim can

I realize this is a long list and would be subject to question.
Please understand, many were customer guns brought in for repair.
Some are ones I have owned, some I still do. some I probably forgotten about.
One group are from a very wealthy collector of rare mg's who's collection I did restorations on the ones that needed them.
Some are from the local pd's inventory.
Many are from my time in the military, A few were from my time working at Harrington & Richardson.
Have been in the manufacturing end of the gun business more or less for 55 years.
Some like the mk19 40mm which I did not list, I had the opportunity to fire the first ones off of Saco Defenses assy lines.
I was a major subcontractor for gages, fixtures and preproduction components. same applies to the lightweight 50m2.

AT NO TIME DID I DO ANY RED JACKET TYPE WORK ON ANY OF THEM!!!

Thanks from CNelson and wookieesniper

M60. Seward AFB near Murfreesboro, TN in 1965. Armed Forces day, I was in the 2nd grade. Lots of neat stuff that day. C130's doing all kinds of demonstrations, getting to ride around in one of those little 4WD flatbed cargo movers (don't remember what they're called but they're about the size of a small trailer - about 4 ft. wide by 8 ft long or so.)

My first full auto was either the M249 or M240B. Shot them both on the same day but I can't remember which one was first.

I bought it for use on the county SWAT team before we got our Steyr weapons system on a grant from the state. I paid $400.00 + $200.00 for the tax stamp to the US Treasury for my MAC back then.

The first full auto that I ever fired was a Browning Automatic Rifle off the fan tail of my ship in the Tonkin Gulf during the Nam in 65. Later as a cop I fired lots of M-16's, M-14's, MP5SD, AKM. Galil's, Ruger AC556K, Thompson's and a Madsen 9mm SMG.

Many years ago I got to shoot a Big Mac with fries (the owners pet name for it)..... .45 auto Mac 10 with cobra suppressor.
A Class 3 dealer I knew showed up at my range and asked if he could shoot it on my property.
I said yes, If I could run a few mags through it..... He said you got 45 ammo? "Why yes I do." Sounded like a air impact wrench. and those .45 RN bullets you could watch them fly to to the targets. way cool. I shot all the 45 auto ammo that I had and in less than 15 min. That cured my itch to own class 3 stuff. Yes, I am that cheap!

Some time later I got to squeeze off a few mags in a M16, Uzi, and my Favorite the MP5. One of the Drs we hunted with had a MG42 and a Maw duce. I just about begged him to bring them out but never panned out. .... Darn it!

Another Dealer I know had a FN heavy BBl That I got to play with. All cool ....and all too expensive for my pocket book.

AK47. One of my marine buddies snuck it back into the states in the fuel tank on his amtrac.

You really struck a cord with me when you made that cheap statement. I haven't shot my MAC-10 since before I retired back in 04 because I now have to buy the .45acp for it now, whereas, since I was the firearms instructor for years I could shoot the crap out of it on the city's dime.

The same thing applied to the M-14s and M-16A-1's that the PD had in our armoury. I never had to worry about ammo because I had the keys to the armoury and could shoot whenever I wanted to and believe me I got plenty of trigger time. I never shot under a 100% on my qualification scores in over 20 years since I spent so much time on the range qualifying officers with their weapons and doing training exercises. I had a wonderful career and I wouldn't trade jobs with anyone regardless of how much they made.

Honestly, I never ever woke up in the morning and thought, damn it!!!! Today is a work day and I've got to go to work. If anyone likes guns and shooting as much as I do taking a job in police work and becoming a certified FBI/NRA police firearms instructor is the best job in the world. Bar none!

The first and only full auto I've fired is an M14. I generally have no idea what I'm doing, but I've only fired a few hundred rounds through it. My E2 muzzle brake blew the other day (found it cracked in half about 15 yards downrange!) and am currently waiting on an SEI coast guard brake replacement.

M16A1 in basic in 1987. Then in my first unit I was a M60 gunner until I made Spec-4. 3 round burst is o.k but nothing beats full auto rock&roll
