Ned-

you look like your right at home...I love burning Gov ammo thru FA guns. It is always nice to use up a few of my own tax dollars, with the local PD and Fed boys. I don't own any...because I just bought a mill instead of a buzzgun, besides I can't afford to feed one any how.

Great pics
Mark

Full auto = rich man's game these days...... doesn't seem that long ago when my good pal Dean bought a bottom of the barrel M-1 Thompson for $1500 and that was a real big deal for him. Guess it was 15-17 years ago. I mean this thing was 100% "shooter" and 000.0% collectible. He sold it 4-5 years ago for $6000 and the guy that bought it probably made 2-3-4 grand on it.

Never mind the cost of ammo, of course.

I was on Pact's site yesterday looking at their chrono, when I watched a video that reminded me of this thread. After saying that her 1911 was as American as Skippy extra crispy and a Ford Mustang, the young lady grabbed her Tommy Gun and fired off a few rounds. When she was done she looked at the camera and says: "If God wouldn't have wanted girl's to have machine guns, she wouldn't have made so many turtles."

Hilariously twisted or twistedly hilarious? You decide..... :lol:

Speaking of a rich man's game, I just read Mike Venturino about his buzzguns.

He sold 50 guns to buy six transferables. Hmm, what is the market trade rate for triple-lock S&Ws to one Thompson?

Old thread I know, but I need to update with this.

The other evening I wandered into the path of a veritable hail of bullets fired by multiple Thompsons. In the space I occupied, literally hundreds of rounds flew in both directions. The windows in front of me were shattered; the wall behind me was riddled! There I was.... it happened right there.

In addition to the 230 FMJ's, nigh unto a pound of buckshot was fired and hard to say how many magazines were fired through one or more BAR's.

There I was.... it happened right there.

After it happened, I finished the last bite of my delicious Old World Pork Shank, and took another sip of my Leinenkugel beer, contemplating the furious gunfight.

All true! It happened right there......

Eighty-two years ago, Little Bohemia Lodge, Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin.

I had dinner again last week at Little Bohemia-- it's a great place even without the "historical event". As you enter there is a small glass case containing some of the things the gangsters left behind-- a lady's hat, a satchel, some toiletries, including some Ex Lax. I'm thinkin' they got along without it OK that night :-)

The latest Steven Hunter novel is worth a read, Ned.

Thanks for the recommendation and I'm already on it! Have not read it but looking to pick it up.

One of my training partners ran into a Thompson the other day that was stolen by Dillinger when escaped the Lake County Jail. Lucky dawg, I'm hoping to finagle my own get-together with that one :-)
