I have been reading these and agree that we are an interesting bunch. Most of the demographics here could be input under your user profile, as I have to mine. It is listed below:
Mechanical toys - cars, instruments, and of course - guns. The 1921-28 thompsons are the epitomy of perfection for a mechanical device that fills all my interests!
PS - Anyone know how to fit two FBI hardcases in a Ferrari 308? at the same time?

1 girlfriend (American)
one deactivated Savage 1928A1
IT Systems Analyst
too many computers to mention, brand new Powerbook G4 which i love!
Got into Thompsons because my grandfather spent the whole of WWII in tanks but never talked about it much, only found out after he died that he did some pretty amazing things which got me interested in WWII generally. i'd always wondered what one particular gun that British commando's and US troops used a lot and thats how i found my way here...

48 yrs young-going to be married Feb. 14, 2003, for the 3rd. time (never learn).
Have 3 children, 22, 18 & 16 from previous marriage. Alimony is done, so I can buy more NFA Weapons. Future wife at least understands my obsession with firearms.
Live in the free state of Pennsylvania. My Cleo is pro-gun and not a problem signing.

Have a WH 1928 Thompson in transfer to my local FFL/SOT-hopefully will have by May or June.
Looking to purchase a AC556 Ruger or MK. 760 next.
I own many assorted firearms and have a Pa. Concealed Weapons Permit. Like to target shoot with the .44 mag and .454 Casull handguns. Will buy a .50 in the near future.
Carry a Pre-ban Glock 23 .40 with 13 rd mags, or a S & W 4516 .45ACP.
Private Pilot, Instrument Rating with 1/2 ownership of 1960 Piper Cherokee based at WBW airport.
Have been a gun nut since a kid-worked for a gunsmith when growing up and had an FFL for 8 years as part time business.

I don't believe this is true, I can't find anything that says this on the website. You still have to shoot 50 rounds in a match.

From Central Nebraska
I have a BS in Animal Science, was drafted in '69 into the Army, took all my training at Ft. Puke, LA as 11B, spent a year and 20 days in Viet Nam as sniper (radio call sign -Super Shooter), 50 gunner and APC driver for the Flower Power and then the Electric Strawberry. ETS'ed home to farm and feed cattle until '98 when I retired to have more fun selling things on eBay.
Got into photography in VN & brought the hobby home, eventually getting into camera trading. There is a certain amount of cross-over between gun & camera people. Am now setting up at a lot of Nebraska gun shows looking for more NFA stuff.
Been a gun nut since I learned what they did. Have a couple dozen non-NFA guns, MAC-11, American 180, have coming: 3 more MAC's, Max Atchisson PPS-50, & a 1928 WH with C & L drums. Looking for an M3 Greasegun & vintage Thompson.
Married 32 years with one married daughter, a daughter in HS and had a boy and girl that died from metachromatic leukodystrophy.
No sports cars now, but had a '63 split window in college. And yes, I wish I still had it!
Many thanks for providing a great site! I appreciate the time, work and money that you must be putting into it and am quite willing to pay my share to keep it going.
