As a further aside, I don't see where a .30 Caliber battle rifle is worth anything in full auto other than as a man portable AA weapon.

However, with some training, you can run an M-4A1 in full auto fairly well. Especially with a grenade launcher and an ACOG hanging on it.

And the burst feature on the M-16A2 is nothing but a modern version of the magazine cut off. Except sometimes you get a single shot, sometimes a three shot burst, and sometimes a run away gun. I'd rather have semi-auto only than hope the burst works when needed.

As a further aside, I got to shot an L1A1 at IBOLC. Most enjoyable. However, I don't think I'd want to lug one all over Rhodesia. Or fire one on full auto.
I like to think, that before that Navy SEAL double tapped bin Laden in the head, he kicked him, so that we could truly say we put a boot in his ass.
