If I remember correct this is a picture from a UK anti-gun board. This is a shot of Thompsons used in Viet-Nam I think is what the posting said. I think there was a stink about this on the old board! Yes this is tax payers dollars wasted because of the pussy anti-gunners! This pictures had to be posted by either the anti-gunners in Europe or the DemiKrats in the Kommy states! Not only are there piles of Thompson's, but there are piles of M16's and BAR's and other "EVIL GUNS" that chicken shit little bastards hate! You know the kinds that are affraid to spank their own kids for it might offend someone or make their little love child turn into a psycho chicken raping killer.

and i remember the story of the guy who chopped up brand new 1918 winchester bar's {ten and twenty in a crate.blued and original.with manufacture tags,in wrapper......}in alabama a few years back..................he was not even allowed to remove the wood..........
they told him yeah you can keep a sling or two if you want...............the man said he had tear's in his eye's...from chopper to crusher..............

WHY....because they are full auto..........and we have no reason to let these go into the civilian market.{even as parts}

you don't want to hear the story of the thompson wood,and two rail way cars full of gun's........

he asked what are we to do with those????same thing you did with the 1918 bar's...............

If you go to the web site http://wilk.wpk.p.lodz.pl/~whatfor/ on the menu to the left you will see a little picture of a Radom pistol. Click on it and it will take you to the page covering ALL of the weapons used by the Polish Army and Resistance troops in WWII. Thsi is where this photo was taken from. The M1 were abandoned in place post war and had been sitting there for 50+ years at the time the photo was taken. CAUTION: Some picture are not for the faint of heart weapons collector!! Oh yeah, you will need to read Polish to really enjoy the site.

That's a very interesting site.
Anyone know where to download a translation program, Polish/English?
