Husband finally got tired of my penny pinching ways and told me to go spend some money! It's nothing crazy... but I'd like to put some of that towards shooting stuff I've never played around with before. There are a few "machine gun" (cue eyeroll) rental places within driving distance. What are some "seek out and go shoot" guns out there I should try to find?

I'm definitely joining a local gun club, too!

MP5, G36C, Thompson. Those were on my list. Loved shooting all 3.

Thompson and MP5 are both super fun and I think you would like them. Uvalde has a place where you can drive tanks and I believe actually operate some of the turrets/turret mounted weaponry! I would like to someday operate a MG42/MG44 but that is just a Someday.

How much money are we talking?

As sad as this seems... I would put the money towards a gun you can own. I have shot a fair number of full auto guns and they are definitely the most fun you can have (with your clothes on), however, if your budget is in the hundreds to thousands I would definitely recommend buying a gun you will use more frequently.

Not a ton... a few hundred a month. I'm pretty lucky that I own most everything I've had my eye on. I was a little more free with my cash before getting married... oops. I also suspect if I wanted a new gun, I could mention it and it would show up under the Christmas tree.

I retract my earlier advice. Go shoot some machine guns...

Glock 18, MP5, UMP45 are all a blast to shoot and relatively cheap.

Definitely drive a tank if you've never done it. I'm not sure who does that but Museum of the American GI in Aggieland would be my first call. If they can arrange it, they can probably make it tax deductible. If they can't they may know who can arrange it.

Full auto is also fun.

Helicopter shooting or belt fed machine gun.

They're both amazing.

If you wanna shoot a belt fed from a helicopter, and get paid for it, boy do I have an opportunity for you!

Went to ox ranch for a bachelor party weekend. One of the guys in our group bought the groom a package to drive a tank, shoot a machine gun, and shoot(?) a flame thrower. We all got to ride on the tank while our buddy was driving which was really fun. They don't let you operate the turret and if you want to shoot one it isn't like you'd think where you're shooting from inside the tank.
