'GSAA' means that it went thru the San Antonio, TX arsenal for rebuild.

Ausrotten,

A smart guy like you that's an expert on political and world events, can't figure out how it ended up all the way over there? How about World War II when U.S. production and materials saved your country from invasion from Germany?

I know that WWII was a little before your time and doesn't rate much interest in your political science classes, but maybe you ought to read a little more history before you base all your world opinions on current political rhetoric.

please dont be like that. seing as i'm not an expert on thompsons, i presumed, that after the war or whatever it got shipped back. how the hell would i know if wether it stayed there and went to vietnam, or if a collector or whatever bought it.
Theres no need to patronise me.
u know what, shut up gidick. its people like you that give the rest of the world the false impression that every american is arrogant and stuck up their own ass. stop trying to prove something. this was a perfectly reasonable question.

Simon,
While I appreciate you might not be made of money. might I suggest you consider buying Frank Iannamico's excellent book, "The American Thunder" the history of the Military Thompson Sub Machine Guns.
It is a really excellent book with many fine photographs and real helpful details on your gun. I think you can order it via this forum.
I have been collecting Thompsons for only 30 years and I dont know half of it , but Frank's book is very helpful as not only does it contain the History but it is also very technical.
Obviously you are suffering from the dreaded Thompson addiction like we all have.
Best wishes

I dont know how many British pounds make up US$30 Simon but it cost me over NZ$70 and I found it was good value.
It is A4 size and about a inch thick... if you can measure books like that!!!

Maybe you should look in the mirror ph34r.gif and quite "Calling The Kettle Black", your the one that starting judging our country and our President!!! mad.gif !!!!!!!..........

You should take a back seat of a few years until you become mature enough to talk about "Thompsons" and not about your personal life blink.gif -- WE DON"T CARE ABOUT YOUR POLITICAL VIEW POINTS OR YOUR PERSONAL LIFE!!!!.......

AND I DON"T LIKE HOW YOU TALK TO FREIND "GIGIVE"....... dry.gif mad.gif dry.gif

Hello all. I've been sitting by the sidelines, just reading the posts, and well, as we are all aware, when it comes to Politics or Religion a fight often breaks out. That's just the way it is. Now, I must confess, that there are valued points on both sides. Simon living across the pond, is fortunate enough to hear News Broadcasts that us, Americans do not hear. Information that is often kept from both you and I. I voted for Bush, however, I do have my personal feelings about the individual that we call our President. It's a shame that the powers that be in Washington is using the tragity of 9-11 to further eliminate our own personal freedoms in the name of "Homeland Security". Something that should alarm everbody here. Nor, am I easily brainwashed either. Indeed, as someone made reference to our help for England during the Second World War does go without saying. If it wasn't for the thousands of Americans that gave up their lives, their wouldn't be an England at all.
But, I can't accept using that argument for the Battles were facing today. Though I do believe that many can find it very emotional, as we have seen here. Yes, I do feel that there are other reasons that have been kept from the American public. I don't think there is anybody here that has all the "Answers". As far as Simons age, it really doesn't matter in regards to him trying to obtain information on the Thompson Submachine Gun. I was much younger when I first started reading on all things, Thompson. And for Simon being 17, at least he does have a Political Viewpoint, and does seem interested, whether or not we agree with them. How many 17 Year Olds out there that really give a damn? Wasting their young lives to Drugs and what have you? Yes, Simon, you do have much to learn, and I wish you well, but I must say, you did come off a little strong in reference to our President. No, I don't think you said you were "Anti-America", but I think some may have gotten confused and believed you were because of those Ant-Bush statements. BUT, how many of you on the Forum disliked the Clintons? I certainly did, nor did I consider myself an Anti-American for having those views. No, I don't feel that our current President has been the best for our Country, but that's my opinion, and we all have one. Anyways, I wish you all well!
