Best Answer

a gun that reloads it self when you fire it using the power of the exiting bullet. one that isn't semi automatic would need to be reloaded after each shot and an automatic one will fire the next round for as long as you Holt the trigger

Which is correct machine gun or automatic machine gun?

Machine gun or machinegun. All of them are automatic, so it is redundant to say that. There is no such thing as a semi automatic machine gun, or a single shot machine gun. That answer is correct, but many people use the term fully automatic machine gun or full auto machine gun to specify they are not talking about a semi-auto pistol or rifle, which are commonly referred to as autos, and sometimes that term confuses people.
