One of my friends down here in San Antonio is an immigrant from Great Britain. Before he came to Texas he hadn’t so much as held, let alone fired one and fully drank the anti-gun Kool Aid prevalent in his native country. But when he realized that a local range down here rents MGs at a fairly reasonable price (lower than Las Vegas, at least) he begged me to take him. I think I made a pretty good choice with the menu for his first full auto foray — starting with an MP5-SD, and then straight to the Norinco AK-47. It brought back memories of my own first time going full auto, and confirmed my belief that the giggle switch is aptly named. Some believe that civilians shouldn’t own machine guns, but I firmly believe that after just one magazine through one, they’ll be converted too. Even if they used to live in London.
