There are 3 members of this board, including me, that have fired this Colt Thompson. It's a beautiful TSMG...

You might know but why on some colt Thompsons is the yellow inside of the words on the receiver and some don't is it because they are older?

Dave.. Who's back yard you shooting in...


Trail Glades Range...It's a public range, except for the part we shot on, which is the LE range. I'm not LE, but someone we shot with has the range reserved for several hours once a month.

David, next time you’re down, shoot me a message. I’d love you have you come by and maybe go out to dinner. I’m about 35-40 miles north of Miami.
