WWII Thompson

Post by stl303 »

Took a trip up to Wisconsin (Behind the Cheddar Curtain) this past weekend. Though it was for unpleasant reasons, I did have the good fortune to have a nice shooting outting with a fellow VW enthusiast..

Got to try my hands on an authentic WWII dated Thompson in all it's full-auto glory.

And like another first time, it was over just that quick. Image

Sounds like a sewing machine. Those 20 and 30 rd sticks don't take long to unload.

Also they take longer than a 50 round drum to load.

Runs better than the godawful M3 Grease Guns we were issued for our M60 tanks. Those POS can all be melted down (ok, one or three for museums) as far as I'm concerned. :lol:

Oh, BTW where in Wisconsin was this? I want to know who has a sheriff that'll sign off on full autos in case I ever get the money for an M2 carbine.

We were down near Watertown, but the owner lives up near Appleton I think.

NICE! That's on my list of dream guns.

Though I want the vertical foregrip version.
