You are a real DUMB ASS. You will either end up killing yourself or someone else. If your going to be stupid, in this case, it seems as if you can't help that, do it by yourself. No sence dangering others around you. You may be 100% for real, hell I don't know, but if you are, you really need to learn how to be safe while handling firearms. There fun, and a joy to shoot, but if your not careful, you or someone else, will end up injured or dead. Stupid Somebitch..

Sam...
If you are sincere and honestly without a clue how to use or load your Thompson...please set it down and find a phone book and look up a good gunshop to help you with your questions...
We are glad you always wanted a 'Tommygun', but the 'real deal' cost what a car costs nowadays...your gun is a semi automatic...and they are not really well assembled and do not work well out of the box.
Take the time to educate yourself about the gun and ask lots of questions before you try anything with live ammo...
Maybe try some blanks first?
Sit down, drink some decaf and don't do anything with live ammo until you know what and how to use the gun.
Please!

Remember to keep the bullshit and the name calling to NILL!! Remember the rules, YOU and the troll will be outta here!

Hey FNG maybe you should do some reading about gun safety and the laws concerning ownership before expecting everyone not to get on your case.

Sam, remember this; guns are like automobiles and electricity. They do not discriminate, play favorites, and show no loyalty! When used incorrectly, it can hurt (or kill) you without hesitation!

The .45ACP round is not firecracker, but a very deadly round; PLEASE give your gun AND the amunition your undivided attention!

I would advise that you get familiar with gun witout the ammo at first; learn to dissasemble it, clean it, and maintain it. Go to the safety courses first, and always wear shooting glasses.

I would make the suggestion that you never try to unjam a round from the chamber by usuing a dowel rod. If the round goes off, your in big trouble. At the very least, you will probably lose a hand! ohmy.gif

Between all this laughter, I dropped a damn cigarette and burned a hole in my shirt! As Norm pointed out, you should never try to get a stuck bullet out the way in which you did. At least not with the Bolt assembly in place! A very dangerous practice for sure. Your damn lucky that cartridge didn't go bang. I can understand your enthusiasm, something all of us share, but be careful.

Sam, a two pound hammer is way too heavy to use with a pine block. Two pound hammers are used only with Oak blocks. You need a one pound hammer for pine. Or you could always get an oak block instead. That might be cheaper if you don't have a one pound hammer.
