May I suggest all of you on this forum join The American Thompson Association and attend the Hill family All Thompson Show & Shoot later this year. This will be one great birthday party for General Thompson, the Auto-Ordnance Corporation and the Thompson submachine gun. There have been over 100 attendees to this great event in the past; can we make 200? 

 

I guarantee a great time!
