In this video an FN M-249 machine gun is being fired on fully automatic non-stop and its amazing to watch. However, for those that have served in the military and have been taught to employ one in training. The weapon is used in providing cover or suppressive fire in short burst, not on full automatic.
On the other hand yes, it does look very cool to see the red-cherry hot glow on the barrel.
Or you might be the other person that is an M249 lover, and may see this as weapon abuse. You just don’t abuse the weapon that may save your life. In any case, we’re sure you have probably never witnessed a belt-fed machine gun shot this long. The FN M249 machine gun sure can shoot.
