Glock 17

Now here's a guy who loves his guns! I'm not saying he's a violence freak or anything...

Though I wonder if this is faked? I find it hard to believe that any handgun can fire that fast, big magazine or not. Also the Glock 17 is said to be a semi-automatic, meaning that while it loads the next round automatically (I think with the recoil), it requires one pull of the trigger to fire one bullet, it won't keep on firing.

Googling around a bit, some claim that "fully automatic handguns are out there", but it seems to me that overheating and handling the recoil would make them dangerously impractical.

Yes, there are fully automatic handguns. I'd love to shoot one someday, but I wouldn't be able to afford enough ammo to shoot for long.

Possession of fully automatic handguns is prohibited for you and me, that's why they are not common.

They are however available for law enforcement personnel. Note that the most useful automatic mode on a handgun fires only 3-round bursts and not the entire contents of the magazine.

They must indeed get very very hot! Looks useless but fun to me. :)

Kent, if you had a bigger dick would you still be so into guns?

Anonymous FanBoy- If you had a smarter mind would you still be so obsessed with me?
