    Wow. You must get one heck of a tax return! A decent
    transferable Thompson will run 15-20 grand.

    If you are getting enuff coinage back to buy a full auto, you need a much better tax advisor. Yeah, about $20K and up. Semi autos are much, MUCH less- my LGS has a couple. If you mean a Thompson/Center single shot pistol, that is a whole 'nother matter.

    So- which is it?
     
  5. Sorry everybody i should have been more specific. No i am just wanting a semi auto Thompson. I don't know if i want the m1 style or the Chicago typewriter lol. I'm just wanting to look a few and see what i can do. Thanks for any help guys.
