Speaking of drinking and let's not forget, Thompsons, the History channel is featuring a special show on Rum Runners, Moonshiners, and Bootleggers tonight at 9:00 P.M. est/ 8:00 P.M.central. I'm sure the Tommy Gun will make an appearance. biggrin.gif Regards, Walter

Walter,

Thanks for the tip wink.gif , I'll be sure and tune-in tonight. The History Channel is one of my favorite cool.gif channels to watch, you'll see more Thompsons' in action on there then anywhere else.

Thanks, biggrin.gif
Jim

PS - Wonder if we'll see "PK" on there???? (remember those pictures) laugh.gif laugh.gif cool.gif

Got to see the last half of the show, but sure enough, the Thompson made a few appearances.

Jim FromFL, I thought it was a fascinating show, tying everything in from John Hancock (one of the original illegal rum runners, founding father, and wealthiest colonial at the time) to Prohibition, Al Capone, The Purple Gang, the ST. Valentine's Day Massacre, and NASCAR (being founded by moonshiners). I only wish there were more Tommys blazing on film. biggrin.gif Regards, Walter

Walter,

I, like you, watched the whole show last night and enjoyed it very much wink.gif , but thought they would have had a little more of the "Blazin Tommy Guns" going on sad.gif . Still a great show to watch smile.gif .

(Would have been a better show with more Tommys to watch!!! tongue.gif ...)

If you get the chance pick-up a DVD called "WINDTALKERS" wink.gif with Nicholas Cage in it. This show has some "Kick-Ass" biggrin.gif Thompsons Blazen, gun fights early on and later in the movie. Based on World War II Battle of Saipan. A must see movie, you'll love it wink.gif .

Yes. The opening moments of "Windtalkers" with Cage and those TSMG's is extraordinary!
