I'm sure you'd have to obtain a special license, as for any full auto gun.

It depends on your state laws and you need to pay a federal tax and be accepted for it. Once you have then it is legal to own. A lotof people think it is against the law to owna fully auto weapon but it is only illegal to own an unregisted and untaxed one.

I believe it is $200.00. Of course you also have to go through a background check and get the signature of someone like the local sheriff. All the forms and instructions are on line I think from ATF. I have known several people who had legal automatic weapons. Their biggest complaint was that ammo got expensive quick when you could fire it a rates of hundreds a minute. also most auto weapons tend to be not too accurate. They are area weapons. if you want to shoot a bunch of people they might be ok but for one a burst like 3 rounds is better and nothing makes up for poor marksmanship except proper tarining. Rambo is Hollywood.

I do belive it is possible in Lousiana, good thing ur not from Illinois, Otherwise you could forget about it. Our gun laws are almost as bad if not worse in some cases than California. By the way Ted Nugent owns one of the few privately owned 18's in this country.

That would be a company policy not a legal requirement though. They would have to sell the gun to you through a class III licensed dealer not directly to you from them if I understand the laws.
