I was browsing youtube the other day and came across bumb firing. I didn't know what it was so I watched... SWEET! I found some vids doing it with the 556.

Went to the pit today with the 50 rounds I had. I tried and tried but only got a 2 round bust.

Anyone else tried and gotten more? I know someone has done it!

Don't yell at me ullie! I know I probably won't try it again

What a total waste of ammo/money.

Just give me the $15 a mag of ammo costs and I'll throw a string of black cats when you pull the trigger. Geardo aren't you active duty? I'm sure you could theoretically find a situation where you could do a mag dump with your issued M4 and actually be able to aim your weapon at the same time. Maybe I'm just a party pooper but it doesn't seem too safe either.

Trey...

I know it's a big waste of money, but it's cool to know you can just "unload" like that. I probably won't ever try it again.

I was active duty, and our M4's only had 3 round burst but you could empty that pretty quick! :lol: And you are right, firing from the hip isn't safe at all. There are some guys I have seen (youtube) do it from the shoulder aswell.

I guess I should rethink spilling ammo out like I have in the past. I guess I don't realize I actually pay for this ammo. I just gotta "pull trigger go boom!" Thanks for the reality check Trey!

All I could muster was a few round burst a few times with my SBR.

It's official. I have turned into my grandfather. Reading my post with a fresh attitude today, it is clear that I am now a 70 year old in a 37 year old body.

I haven't been able to afford but ammo to practice lately without dipping into my SHTF stack..............so I'm cranky, OK? Sorry Geardo. It is $12-$40 a mag depending what you shoot though!?!?!

I didn't know that the m4's were not full auto. I guess it saves barrels and ammo. Still kind of surprising though.

I tried it once. After a dozen or so rounds the hammer fell when the bolt carrier was about 3/4 of the way to battery, hitting the underneath of the carrier and locking everything up tight. I had to tap out the takedown pin out with a hammer and punch to separate upper from lower.

Ask yourself this question - will you ever try to bump fire your weapon in a 'real' scenario? If not, then don't waste the ammo or incur the additional wear on your weapon if your just playing around. Train on your weapon how you intend to use it, and don't play with it like it was a toy.

Just my $0.02
