I think that's a sub-machine gun she's shooting. Probably 9mm parabellum. Even so, she kept the muzzle down. (I admit I know little about full autos of any type)

Actually Galenical, my problem was more of....I have always been a big old knuckle dragger. I was told by my buddy, "Now hold low and be prepared for that thing to rise up on you." So, I get a death grip on it, push the muzzle down hard in an effort to let it right up through the target.....I pulled the trigger and a huge cloud of dust rises up about 15 feet out in front of me and the gun never came up more than six inches. :-)

I just mowed the ground all to hell right in front of me. It was embarrassing. :-)

Yeah, I imagine that AK launching 180 gr. of lead at 2500 fps would kick a whole lot more than an Uzi shooting 95-115 gr. at 1200 fps. The AK would leave a nice bruise on the shoulder, yes? Not that you'd notice till the next day what with having so much fun making the bruise.

Sorry about your car. Oh man!

Interesting Galenical, because I didn't even know what was the separation between machine gun versus submachine gun.....Pistol ammo is the determing factor of what is or is not a submachine gun.

Interesting that an Colt M4 is not considered a submachine gun in the 5.56 round, until you chamber it in the 9mm parabellum round. Then it is reclassified.

Good catch. :-)

Over the weekend, the National Rifle Association celebrated it's 141st birthday. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to shoot a fully automatic Uzi at the NRA range in Fairfax, Virginia. To say happy birthday, I'm posting the video below. Here's to another 141 years in support of the Second Amendment.
