As you can see Lori had a little trouble with the 9mm UZI, She may be in trouble with a Thompson.

Do I recall Ellen Ripley having a tad of trepidation when firing her pulse rifle the first time? She'll be fine....

Chris, of course, you know that there is a M1 (or M1A1?) Thompson hiding in that "pulse rifle" dummy shell? I thought that was pretty cool that they used a Thompson!

Here is a bit of video, but only a 20 rnd mag...

Teresa and Tommy Quicktime Movie (3 meg)

She did an L drum dump, too, but it quite definitely handled her rather than the other way around. I won't show that video laugh.gif Someplace in a movie once (Indiana Jones maybe?) I recall such a scene!

The “New Zealand Hillbillies”, I wonder if Hollywood might be interested in this cast (?). Nice shot Murray, is that you in the midst of your clan?

Chris, take Teresa out more often and she will get a handle on that Chicago Typewriter and probably start out shooting you!


Thanks all for sharing!

There is a little mistake in the history or lineage of typewriters vs. Thompson's. The older Thompson's are more like the electric typewriters and the newer are more like standard typewriters. Go figure!

Gray Crow,

Some of us didn't make the cut for typewriters; huh.gif that made no sense.


Nick,

It looks like you might have to do for yours what I do for mine, buy a spare buttstock and shorten it. Mine enjoys it a lot more, course she can't shoot half my guns.(too long and heavy)
cool.gif I made the mistake of handing my AR (with heavy barrel and free float tube, of course) to my ex and it automaticly pointed at her feet. My Ex loved to fire that one of the bench but couldn't hold it up without a rest. I've taken about a dozen young ladies out shooting for the first: and repetitive times. All have condesended to go again and some have actively asked or demanded to go again. Looking at your clip your ladies back was bent, don't let her do that; unless you want her on the ground. rolleyes.gif


Murry,

What can I say aside from where is the line to be adopted? biggrin.gif

What worries me Guys, is my Son in law on the right hand side of me and his wife (my eldest Daughter) standing behind him. The likeness to Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker is of concern!!!!
