I thought some of you might be interested in this, even though slightly off topic (Thompsons). I came across an interesting article on the Newscientist.com website titled, Sweeping Stun Guns To Target Crowds. ohmy.gif It seems scientists in Germany are coming up with a new generation of 'wonder-weapons!' These new weapons will use a 'lightening-like beam of electricity' to stun individuals, crowds, and even incapacitate vehicles (now so heavily dependent on electronics). It (one version) ionizes the air itself (using a solid-state laser) to target the weapon, has a range of 100 meters, and is scheduled to be out in 2005! ohmy.gif They are under contract to 'Uncle Sam' to provide our Marines with the next generation of weapons. Fascinating! blink.gif cool.gif Regards, Walter

Actually it should be stun them Spocko! Ole bones wants a piece of the action also I see.

Wonder whether those were real heaters or mock ups. Would be kewl if one of the Stembridge guns turned out to be used in this episode.

GonePostal, I think that is a distinct possibility. rolleyes.gif smile.gif Someone more up on that might be Arthur, GI Jive, 'Respected Ron' and many others who frequent this outpost of the galaxy! blink.gif laugh.gif Beam me up Scotty!

That's cool Ron! I only meant that there were some of you guys who are more knowledgable about Thompson history and detail. Have fun packaging, and don't forget to keep us informed of any good deals!...wink! tongue.gif smile.gif Best Regards, Walter
