Video of Private-Owned Full Auto Shoot

Oklahoma full auto shoot

This video montage shot at the Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot and Trade Show from July 2005 is simply amazing. I was surprised that average Americans still have such an arsenal of firepower (and explosives) that the government hasn’t tried to scoop up and take away under the lame argument that the Second Amendment is a “collective” right.

While I’m sure some of our more liberal readers will freak out over this video and posit that there’s no logical reason for people to own these kinds of guns, I think the lesson here is that Oklahoma sure as hell won’t be invaded by Al Qaida (or the ATF) anytime soon.

Since this is first time a lot of people are learning about this, I think it’s a testament to the fact that these owners are clearly responsible for their actions and their posessions of full auto firearms hasn’t magically transformed them into murderous raving sociopaths.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. Personally, I’d be more afraid of the ATF. Al Qaeda certainly didn’t invade Waco.

    Considering our entire military is in Iraq (*** though to make this post relevant to 6 months from now, let’s just say Iran too***), I’m happy to know that ordinary citizens have the ability to make up the difference.

  2. Awesome! I’d love to get my hands on stuff like this, but it costs a TON, I’ll bet. I think you need a costly exemption from the federal gov. to obtain full autos like this.

  3. As a machinegun owner (Only an M16, for now) I can tell anyone this with the utmost certainty: Regardless of your views on guns in general, the people that LEGALLY own automatic weapons like these are the last people on earth you need to be worried about. The cost and process to obtain such items is costly both in money and time. To put it in perspective, the cheapest, crappiest automatic weapon you can buy will run you $3,000 (For an M10/M1), from there it only goes up, M16’s start around $10,000, Thompsons and MP5’s start around $15,000, and once you get into belt-feds you’re talking $20,000 minimum. You could buy a house for what some of these guns cost. On top of that the process of purchasing an automatic weapon is a lengthy and mind-numbing exercise in governmental paperwork. The ATF has to approve every single ownership transfer (which takes anywhere from 1 month to 4 years depending on how lazy your examiner is.). The prices of these guns is so high because of GCA’68 & FOPA’86

  4. Also, the explosive in the video are called “Tannerite” (google it.) It’s a binary explosive that when mixed can only be triggered by a high powered rifle round. The chemistry behind it is really quite fascinating, and the effect is pretty awesome from what I’ve heard. I have no first-hand experience with it as I live in a large city.

  5. Dan seems to know a lot about explosives… are you prior military or just an enthusiast? Just wondering, I’m a former Army EOD Tech myself.

  6. I know little to nothing about explosives, I’ve just read about the Tannerite and some of the underlying chemistry because of it’s popularity among my fellow MG owners and my own curiosity (I’m one of those people who likes to know how everything works just for the sake of knowing.)
