Pictures Of My Thompson

I finally got some stuff together and put together my web site. It still loads a little slow in places. It is a pure shame that there is such a tradeoff in quality of the photos for loading speed. Hope you still enjoy.

Congrats on a very nice gun and webpage! I particularly liked the pics from your father's military service. As well as a Savage M1928 I also have a Vickers, an Australian Lithgow from 1942 (live).

Dan, I'll look at the grip tonight and see if there are markings. I don't recall seeing any, but maybe I overlooked it.

Nice wood on the Thompson.
That lady is very pretty. You should not be calling her a dummy.

You're right about that. She's still a little sensitive; she just came out of the closet. Incidentally, some of these days, I'd like to acquire an articulated mannequin. I need something that could make a good display for British gear, to set up with my Vickers.

We had some feeding problems, but we suspect it was caused by bad ammo. When we switched to Sten Guy's ammo, everything worked great.
Incidentally, after taking it apart for cleaning, I can now answer Dan's earlier question about rear grip markings. There is indeed a marking at the top of the rear grip. It is the capital letter "D" firmly engraved there.
