Frankly I don't see the point in making any weapon fully automatic. I once fired an AR that was modified to fire a 3-round burst, the recoil on that was bad enough. If you plan on shooting things out of the sky, fully auto may be the way to go. But most rifles are meant to shoot targets on the ground and one bullet is more than enough to kill.

And with the full automatics, as soon as you start shooting more than 3 or so rounds, if you do not train and have the proper technique, the shots will start going everywhere from the recoil. Its just "spraying and praying." Thats why, if I remember right, the armed forces are making their m-16'* with just a one shot and three round burst option because of the lost accuracy of multiple rounds. Sorry if this is off topic.

We actually switched for a number of reasons. The 'official' reason is because we wasted ammo and weren't taking calculated shots. The penny pinchers up top figured it was a good idea to limit us to 3-round bursts. I've also heard that a lot of people overheated their barrels. Meh, I'd like to play with one of the A1'* but even digging around in the back of the arms room I can't find one.

You're absolutely right though, even on 3-round burst its really difficult to keep them on target.

Has to be CDN. the Criimal code of Canada is legal jargon and makes limited sense to me
I know somebody with an assault causing bodily harm charge on their criminal record. This person also legally owns three firearms. I have heard in some cases a judge setting an order that a person is not allowed to possess any firearms or ammunition.
I'm not sure how that would affect legal ownership
Try calling a lawyer, most of them give free advice over the phone.
