What Is Your Dream Thompson?
Posted 07 June 2004 - 12:11 PM
Maybe a famous criminal Thompson? or a one that was verifyably used to storm Normandy?
I personally would like one with some history, like a Mob gun?
What's your pick?!

Sold all of the above for $3,500. which was at the time far more than the gun was worth.

I don't think that's nutty all, it would be a great gun to have.
My choice would be one of the two Colts that was owned by my local P.D.
When my sherriff signed my form 4 he told me about shooting them when he was a young officer. He said they were traded for two M-16's years ago.
What a shame.

Or maybe a polymer 1921AC (think Thompson with Glock technology)
This is all assuming that we could miraculously get legislation passed to make the Ever-RED (formerly Evergreen) State NFA-friendly...
Just my $.02.

I think I'd be glad to get any operating Tommy for under $10k.
Right now, I'm reduced to a Mac-10 and Ruger AC-556.

If I were to have one more, it would most certainly be Auto Ordnance number 26. This is the gun all the colts were copied after. It would have to be the real original Father of the Thompson Submachine Gun family.
In reality, I would take any Irish Sword and be thrilled. I would love to have had that one Murry sold.

I would love to have a 21 with history - the one in Berrian Co, or Henry Ford's would be cool, but why? I would never shoot it.
I have a bastard numbered 28 that shoots great. And damn it - I love it, and it is exactly what fits the bill for me! a Shooter!
