I've got for first semi-auto .22, and over 600 rounds of .22lr, some of which are calling my name to bumpfire them, but my local range is an indoor one. They allow rapid fire, as long as it's not unsafe, and bumpfiring isn't unsafe. I guess that means I can do it?

Would probably be better to call and ask. I'm willing to bet they say "absolute not"

I'd bet they say no also, bump firing isn't exactly "safe" since you don't technically have good control over the rifle. Most bump firing techniques have you shooting from the waste which would be un-safe in most indoor ranges.

Hopefully not the one I'm at. If bump firing has its time and place, inside a building is neither of those.

There are so many things wrong with what you said.

Mess the system up at the top that takes the targets down range and your looking at $$$. The last one I went to even advised against head shots if you where not confident. That range was rather small though.

Id say, no.

It be a shame to lose your range privileges with your first gun....

Note to self:
continue shooting at outdoor ranges and thank your lucky stars you have them...

Why do it in the first place?

IF you want to make that kind of noise go to SC and get some firecrackers.

If you want ot learn how to shoot bump firing is not the way to go.

Youtube will kill this way of life.

LOL. A couple packs of Black Cats make more/better noise than bump firing a .22, probably cheaper too.

You guys have convinced me not too lol. I guess this is a different crowd from the groups in a couple different posts I saw on this site who were all in agreeance that bumpfiring wasn't unsafe. Plus I would definitely not be bumpfiring from the waist. I guess I should have mentioned that.

Easy cheif. I said it was MY first semi auto .22. I didn't say I have no shooting experience, or even that it's anywhere near my first gun.
Be sure to yell "HEY YA'LL WATCH THIS" first.
+1 Because you made me laugh really hard.

I won't do it, but the part you said about the head shots is pretty surprising.

Do you not see the point in anyone wanting to shoot select fire weapons either? Bumpfiring gives you the joy of full auto without the $35 rental fee of a full auto weapon plus the $16 a box range ammo prices.
And no, I'm not silly enough to think that bumpfiring would teach me anything about shooting.

I think you need to step back and learn some more about shooting before you let loose at a range. Trying to bumpfire your "first semi auto 22" shows irresponsibility and lack of consideration for your fellow range-goers.

I believe I've said a few times that I won't be doing it, now. However, it being my first semi auto .22 is irrelevant. It'll still be my first semi auto .22 50 years from now. It means nothing.

Good choice not doing it. Never have heard a valid reason to bump fire any kind of firearm.

First, its "chief." If you're going to be prickly, you'll want to use the right words- or you'll just come off as silly...

Second, it's not "anywhere near your first gun"?

Here's a post from you about 4 weeks ago

Hey guys. My name's Jake and I'm in Hickory, NC. Moved from FL not too long ago, so I'm new to the state and forum.
I don't own any guns, but I'm chomping at the bit to get some. I have to wait until I switch my drivers license to an NC one, which I'm doing tomorrow. Then asap, I'm buying a Mosin Nagant 91/30, a New England Firearms Pardner, and whichever .22 I decide is right.
WOO!
I think its cool that your 18-yrs old and interested in getting into shooting.... but Id suggest you soak in some of the info here and go slow.... otherwise, I'm afraid your relationship with guns will be a short one...
Be safe and have fun....

Come on man. You were young once, right? Have you ever wanted to handle a full-auto Ruger 10/22? If so, then I think we can all understand a desire to fire more bullets faster. Heck. I'd love to have two full-auto Glock 17's with 33rd mags - one in each hand. Would I hit anything? Heck no! But would it be fun and a good use of 66 rounds of ammo? Absolutely!
