Something strange happens in the brain of a 56 year old male when he holds a machine gun for the first time. The edges of one’s mouth curl into a snarl.
We were at the Gun Store on Tropicana in Las Vegas and I was holding a Heckler & Koch MP5 Sub-machine gun.
“Hold tight with your left hand and lean into it, give it 3 quick shot bursts” were the instructions on how to hold and aim the weapon. It was time to fire the “chopper”…
YEE HAW!!! this is fun!
Next magazine and I gave it six shot bursts – more fun! I even managed to stay on target – a likeness of Osama bin Laden.
Reloaded and was told to shoot the whole mag in one burst. Squeezed the trigger and thanks to the instructors hand on my back to push me forward I managed not to perforate the ceiling.
Standing there in a cloud of acrid smoke, thirty rounds in four seconds, the lead hose still smoking in my hands I wanted to say “Hasta La Vista Baby”.
So, if you have the time drop by and give it a shot.
