I'll put my 2 cents in, and believe me, thats about all my advise is worth. have you ever fired a M-10 or M-11 F.A.? I had access to a few F.A.s, one being a M-10 .45 and it was my least favorite. it seemed like the fun was over just a little too quick.30rds in what seemed like about 2 seconds. where as the M-16 or Thompson which we also were shooting were a lot more fun.but I know those are MUCH more money. just saying you might want to try and test fire either Mac first before you commit to spending your money.
