Gangsters, Outlaws & Lawmen of the Early 20th Century Forum

This forum is intended to complement the Thompson SMG Forum. Many who are interested in the TSMG also have an interest in other, early 20th Century firearms, cars, and the spectacular history of crime and law enforcement in the 1920ís and 1930ís to which they were associated. So, if you want to discuss Dillinger Thompsons, go to the TSMG forum, but if you want to discuss the finer historical points of Dillinger the outlaw, you should post here.
