Recoil drives the gun back and the barrel up, and this effect is cumulative. So after 2 or 3 shots you're no longer on target, and after another shot or 2 you're firing over the backstop into the sky. With a rifle this is merely dangerous to anything from 2 to more than 5 kms away. With a handgun this is dangerous to everyone in sight, including the shooter.
If you want to rapid fire, you need to join a league and get some experience. IPSC, Cowboy Action, 3-Gun, PPC, etc. Plenty of options.
Watch this... (Also relevant for anyone who believes recoil is uncontrollable):

I have a feeling it will be a bit disappointing after doing the same thing in Vegas with fully automatic weapons.

Tempting though - not a lot of $$.

TIL buytopia still exists
Apparently they acquired all the other sites including Teambuy and Dealfind and is one of the largest group buy sites now.

So true. I once did a similar deal out in Niagara for a bachelor party. The AR15 is LOUD, and I got in shit for that gun. Youre only supposed to shoot one shot at a time. I was getting bored after 4 shots, and pretended there was a Terrorist coming at me and so then fired my last 6 bullets (or maybe even more) all at once. The guy screamed at me as he was clenching his ear lol

We did this last summer. I didn't care for it, I felt very nervous with that much killing power in my hands.
Pretty sure I will never do it again , but maybe others would enjoy it.

Its $25 for one shot on the 50MM cannon. You can feel the pressure wave 20 feet to the side.
Heatware 47-0

Shooting 50cal assuming you mean .50BMG, is recommended by docters for sinus clearing and deep tissue concussion.
Yup, I have heard the same.
Be sure to stand about 4 to 6 feet to the right or left behind the shooter ;)

That’s like $10 in ammo lol
20 rnds. 22 = $3 ($6 for a sleeve of 50 rnds)
20 rnds 9mm =$12 ($25 for a sleeve of 50 rnds)
10 rnds 223/556 = $10 ($20 for a 20 pack)

Rough prices for commercial, off the shelf ammo. Obviously cheaper in bulk, but if you're shooting a few rounds, why would you expect bulk pricing?

Yah but they don’t pull out ammo off the shelf, but from the bulk stash

223 is not $1/round anywhere

Why? Did you feel you might be tempted to shoot someone? Did you feel an urge to point it at yourself? If so, you should definitely stay away from firearms.

There's no full auto in Canada
There's a few lucky bastards that do have an endorsement.
But unless you have it, you'll never get it.

Echoing the above, it's about $5/round raw cost.
But the firearm you're using could be like $10000.

I mean... the only way to experience a firearm without a license is with another person.
This means either a full service range or a friend with a license.

Neither of these should be buying "retail" ammo, but buying by the case.
For a business you're paying them regardless.
If you're paying back your friend, I'm hoping they're at least giving you the bulk price.

Everyone should have the life experience of shooting a gun. Its a respect thing.
If you take it seriously, having that loaded killing tool in your hand for the first time is scary - in the blink of an eye you can take away someone's life.

On the flip side, shooting a rifle accurately is VERY hard. Makes you really appreciate and realize is not at all like playing Call of Duty.

I'm curious as to why this would not be allowed?


I did this for my bachelor party a few years back and it was a blast! I highly recommend it.
Old fudds that's why. Those are the worst ranges to belong to. This isn't the days of muskets anymore where it takes 20 minutes to load the damn thing. The old farts need to get with the times. We are all there for a fun time. Wow, fire off more than 1 round OMG the noise! I'm deaf now with your fancy semi auto! Some ranges only allow 1 round to be loaded at a time, what fun! I belonged to Port Coquitlam range years ago, Wednesday evenings was basically anything goes (within the law of course!) . If you had 10 rounds in a hand gun, empty it as slow or fast as you want. It's your ammo. Same with rifles. There were even gunsmiths who had LEO firearms so they can fire full auto and full non pinned mags. So what, everyone knows the rules and are safe! The RO's made sure everything ran smoothly.
