"Spray And Pray" Or Aimed Fire?

The gun prohibitionists would have you believe that any firearm that can fire full-auto is death incarnate. However, as Greg Hickok - Hickok45 - shows in the short video below, aimed deliberate fire is much more effective than "spray and pray". This is one of the prime reasons that U.S. military changed from the M-16A1 to the M-16A2 which only allowed 3-shot bursts instead of unlimited full-auto fire.


  1. That, sir, is _NOT_ an M4.

    Wrong stock, handguards, barrel, upper receiver, lower receiver and fire mode!

    That's an R653.

  2. The army went to burst fire because of ammo resupply issues. Burst expended less ammo then full auto. Full auto is still very useful when used in controlled bursts. I've used all 3 modes in combat and would take the full auto version every time, even when I have to hump my own ammo without resupply. It all comes down to the same old, same old... Training. Training. Training. Get some!

  3. Thanks for the post but spraying the bullets is not the way of shooting something. You must be well trained to carry the gun before you take that killer in your hand. You must join the Firearms safety training classes to get license and proper training.
