The MK-19 is a good one, put quite a few rounds through that. The M-2 with rufus rounds is hard to beat also. Very few things beat a fully automatic MG with explosive rounds, but my number one would have to be an M24. Laying down shooting targets at 1200m with 7.62 is a great feeling.
Over 2000 rounds through it. It's had 650gr's, shotshells, all sorts of home-load 200gr "500spl" lead ball, the only gun I trust in any sort of bear country.
Even killed a VW Bug with it last year.
Yea, He's gotten uglier the all hell with all the dirt and gravel and grime, he's due for a duracoat soon.
We've got a public range up here (Manchester Firing Line) that has all sorts of goodies to rent. Favorite there was a suppressed MP-5 on full auto. It would have been the Thompson's SMG on full auto, but it was having feeding issues and would only do 5-6 rounds before jamming.
My favorite "regular" shooter is my AR in 6.8. It's quite a fun gun!

"I was born an American; I will live as an American; I shall die an American."
I am the weapon. The gun is merely a tool.
It would have to have been while I was in the Marines. My favorite was the 81mm mortar. The real shake and bake.
Of traditional firearms. I would have to say the M249. I was a infantry instructor for non infantry Marines (MCT). There would always be a bunch of extra ammo after all the privates had shot. That would give me a 4-500 rounds to link up and do some shoulder fire time and "this is what you don't do" drills. It became a tradition for the Lt. and me to rip off some Rambo rounds at the end of the live fire. Least favorite was the MK19. The ones we had were worn out and would jam constantly. Clearing high explosive jams weren't my favorite.
A Thompson SMG with D-day provenance, owned by the man who carried it ashore ("I tried to turn it back in, but the damn ol' thing got all tangled up in my seago bag..."). He let me empty two drum magazines, then made me clean it. Don't know if it's been fired since.
Four rounds from a .585 Nyati built (IIRC) on an A-Square Hannibal action. I wore plugs and muffs, and still got a headache that lasted two days, along with a nosebleed. Exhilarating!
On a cold day during Arizona's 1974 late dove season , my Grand-dad handed me three 12 ga. shells and his Winchester 97. "Knock down at least two. Those shells cost money." I was ten years old, not big for my age, and the gun was like swinging a phone pole. I hit three, which filled my bag limit for the day. Grand-dad was shooting my H&R .410 while waiting to get his 97 back, and went six for six. What a day!
I would say my 10/22, but the magazine reliability, even with Ruger mags, makes it more frustrating than fun. I really love shooting my Keltec Sub2000 in 9mm. Almost no recoil, pretty quiet, and since it takes Glock magazines, no reliability problems! I need to snag some 32 round mags for it. Neat little gun.
A full auto HK with 8in barrel in .308-you could feel your teeth rattle
An M60-full auto
a replica civil war cannon-full size
a semi auto M2
a full auto-suppressed Ruger 10/22
a full auto M16
a flame thrower
My friend used to have full auto machine gun shoots on this farm. A mini knob creek
Hi-Point carbine in 45 acp. This thing is a hoot. Not exactly a plinker. More of a plunker. Just got it, so when the newness wears off I might be more rational about what's "funnest".
I have had the opportunity to shoot some real "fun" guns, but for this thread I will limit it to ones I own.....or could own. My hipoint 995 9mm carbine is a blast and then some, I think it nudges out my M1 carbine because it is cheaper to shoot, and easier to fix if I happen to break it....lifetime warranty!!
Mine has a spray can grey/grey "urban camo" paint job, and an old aimpoint red dot mounted on it, can you say point and click?
With a 20 round drum shooing 12 pellet 00 buck loads. Oregon chain saw. Can cut down a 12" pine tree in no time at all. Very fun. Ear plugs required. Been-gay for shoulder afterwards optional. HB of CJ (old coot)
