: : I would like to know what does the phrase "to go pump or auto" means with regard to shotguns and weapons. Any Ideas?

: : Sharon M.

: I guess it means manual - you pump the next cartridge into the breech - or let the gun fire repeated rounds automatically.

Thank you for replying James,

I think that the phrase "to go pump or auto" specifically relates to weapon usage, since I could not locate this expression in any dictionary at hand. Your comment is very helpful.

Thanks!
