    Winning bid of $98,000 for the two is my prediction. Don't y'all know we're in a downturn? Or as Obama calls it...a recovery?

    By the way, that shotgun action is really cool. It is a pump-actuated lever-action-type bolt.

    if i was to buy a thompson it would be a functioning shooter, not an expensive collectable that sits on the shelf.

    there is a gun range in Eugene oregon that will let you shoot two 25 round mags out of a full auto thompson (i think it's called The Baron's
    Den) for about 40 bucks. funnest 20 seconds of shooting i ever did.

    I went shooting with a former member here, Hunter Joe. He put a Thompson in my hands and stood back and watched the fun. It was the highlight of my shooting so far. I will NEVER forget that day.

    No one ever forgets the first time they get to go full tilt boogie, rock and roll. :) Easier to forget your first love.

    If you are in Vegas

    There are two gun shops that have full autos to shoot here in Vegas.
    THEY MAKE A MINT, lines every day with people spending hundreds to shoot several different guns, even belted MG's

    If they ever get a mini gun, I'm mortgaging my house for a run : )

    I thought Bonnie & Clyde were more into cut-down BAR's for cutting through the cop cars & such?

    I believe that Clyde had no use for the Thompson. It didn't have the power he required. He used the BAR.

    One of these days I'll get around to shooting a Thompson. In the meantime I prefer the MP-5. I want one so badly I can smell the gunpowder.
