49. Yes,semi-auto fire sounds more likely, given that you can distinguish individual rounds being fired.

 

And please pardon my apparent sharp tone earlier, was still getting caffeinated, and I've got an admitted knee-jerk response to some of the misinformation about firearms that is often in evidence.

If it was truely automatic (i.e. machinegun) fire, it would be very odd to not shortly have the entire area swarming with local and federal LEOs. Don't get me wrong, if there is semi-auto gunfire in town, that should be investigated as well, unless you have a known, legal (or at least tolerated-by-officals) target range inside town limits, or very close by. As an example, I live approx. 1 1/2 miles from the firing range on Davis-Monthan AFB. I can clearly here them when live-fire is occuring. Nothing between me and there but scrub desert. That sort of sound can carry a long way.
