    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    It was always fun when the ammo was free.

    I can remember in the States, going to the range for a day of training. At the end of the training, if any of the ammo issued for us that day was left, we could not simply turn it back in.
    It had to be disposed of by shooting it.

    I always liked the M60 and the SAW full auto and nothing else. The M16 when it had the full auto option did waste a lot of ammo.

    Still pretty much the same way. It cost more to inventory,inspect and return than it fire it. Ammo that has been issued for range use becomes questionable if returned to inventory.

    Well, now that inspired me to take out my Thompson SMG this week, been intending to for a while.
    I just hate burning ammo though.
    Have 12, 30 round mags loaded in the safe, 360 rounds, could go through that in less time than to type this line.
    Had a an M3 grease gun once a long time ago, ex wife went through a thousand rounds in a very short time, and wanted more!
    I got a bunch of Wolf 45 recently and will burn some of that up.
    It is not like I have to go anywhere, just in the back yard.
    The guy shooting the Sten gun had no clue how to hold it.

    While in the NG, in the guard tanks back when, I put 5,000 rounds through an M-37 coax mg in a night firing.
    Ammo dump screwed up and issued live HEAT round for the 105MM M68 main gun.
    We had two trailer flatbeds unloaded and the ammo out of the black containers before the dump could stop us.
    We got to shoot it, all of it, because it was open.

    We called it the Mad Minute. Before the end of the fiscal year, we'd go to the range, flip the switch to group therapy and launch all the ammo that hadn't been spent throughout the year. It was explained that any unspent ammo turned in would be counted against future ammo allocated. Wasteful.

    I did get to fire a full-auto H&K once. I preferred their selector switch, as you could fire three shots when learning how to operate a full-auto rifle.
