The displays are about equally mixed between Colt and military guns. People display all the things you mentioned in your posts, i.e. pouches, barrels, drums, misc. parts, etc. Some display posters and books. It depends on what you want to put on your table.
No one at the show gets tired of looking at Thompson stuff:-) Definitely bring any items you want identified, there are lots of knowledgeable individuals there.

Do as I do, bring it all. Someone will want to see it or talk about it. If it has the Thompson name on it, go for it.
see ya there.

I have seen many Thompsons, drums and mags, but still stop at each table because each collection is unique.
There have been people with a table that will only display their Thompson and maybe a Drum and people will stop, stare and admire.
Just remember, whether you have 1 item or 100, or whether its an item people have never seen or see everyday (and Thompson related) you can bet they will stop and look.

I've never tried to fly with any guns, (let-alone a "Full-Auto Thompson Machine Gun" w/ clips, drums and enough ammo to start a small war ) do you need a special pre-approved permit from the airlines and a special type of case?
Or, do they let you carry them on so you can keep them on your person?
I wouldn't want my Thompsons out of my site or want some baggage handler / strangers messen around with them when they transfer from plane to plane at a connecting point.
