I was in St. Louis last weekend and had the pleasure of spending a day shooting with John Ross, author of Unintended Consequences. We did quite a bit of full-auto shooting, including the G18. Me with the G18 This is my friend Tony shooting the G18 John Ross with the Stechkin John Shooting his suppressed Uzi The climb on the G18 is pretty hard to control. This was not the compensated model, and I'm sure that makes a big difference. I can't imagine trying to shoot accurately from isocelese stance (Tony does that, and, well, you can see the results HE got). As you can see, I've locked in the left elbow and it's still climbing on me. We were shooting at golf balls at about 10 or 15 yards... I could always land the first shot, about 3/4 of the time on the second, and after that it varied. Golf balls don't last more than one hit before they bounce waaay back out of range. We had a 5 gallon bucket full of them thrown out there, so targets were plentiful. I shoot a lot of 9mm, but this feels completely different. For being as scrawny as I am, I handle my 9's pretty well, but I don't think my stance held up very well toward the end of the magazine. It's a different feeling, all right.
