Semi-Automatic Rifle That Imitates Machine Gun to Go on Sale This Fall

Machine guns are illegal in the U.S. for most people, but one small company has found a way around that.

Slide Fire, based in Moran, Texas, plans to sell a semiautomatic rifle that mimics the rapid fire of a machine gun and is also fed bullets from a belt, which provides a huge capacity for ammunition -- potentially thousands of rounds.

    Sounds like a wonderful way to burn through ammo.

    Should equip every rancher along the mexican boarder with one, see who wants to illegally cross then

    This isn't really need per se- slide fire already makes parts to make your AR15 do all this. You change the stock for theirs that costs about 300 bucks and it utilizes a sort of "bump fire" method.
