Automatic = 1 pull, many bullets.
Oh? So what's fully-automatic then? 1 pull, many, many, many, many bullets?
As I said before, I'm talking the technical
side of things, not what the masses refer to as "automatic" because in the technical
sense, it is incorrect.
Again, in the technical
An automatic firearm is any firearm that will continue to fire so long as the trigger is pressed and held and there is ammunition in the magazine/chamber. While both "semi automatic" and "fully automatic" weapons are "automatic" in technical sense
that the firearm automatically cycles between rounds with each trigger pull, under conventional usage a merely semi-automatic firearm is not correctly referred to an "automatic weapon" or an "automatic firearm".
