Could you not use check boxes instead of radio buttons for Question Number 2 to prevent people from having to take the survey a number of times?

RE converting semi to (or buying) SBR - no choice for "I'd like to but my state won't allow." (That's my situation.)

Some of the questions were difficult to answer. For eg, I am interested in Semi-auto Thompsons and also have one on an SBR paper, but don't intend to do that again. However, by not checking it as yes, I feel I may taint the statistics of the total persons who have gone that route. Maybe, I'm thinking too much.

John Jr: If you own more than one (1) Thompson do you take the survey more than once? If you answer all questions each time doesn't that skew the survey?

This survey is just a test more or less, so just take it with your favorite Thompson if you have more than one. I am not really data collecting with this survey, but more of learning how to fool around with the data. I will post some neat results tonight when everyone has had a chance to take the survey.

(so far one guy put $2.50 on the Value of a semi auto! LOL!)

Thanks everyone and if you have not taken the survey DO IT!

To paraphrase the Patek Phillipe ad, "You never really own a Thompson submachine gun. You just keep it for the next generation."

Survey taken.

Another interesting question would have been how much does a person think a FA Thompson is worth. I suppose you would have to be a little more specific though and say value of a certain type (such as a WH) or prices would be all over the road map.

It is because of the "fair" market price statement.

We all know if you sold it for a true "fair" market price (NOT a "dealer" price), the Thompson would be worth more in a few weeks than what you sold it for.
