Well, now I'm three for three. Got this one with 13 rounds. Much more satisfying than a shotgun. Little bugger left about 200 feet of tunnel in my golf-course-like lawn. Not anymore......

Nice shooting Chris,but 13 rounds - What will you do if you just wound it and then your clip runs dry? unsure.gif Now that the AWB has expired, you could fit your Thompson with a bayonet, just in case. wink.gif

And once agin you must have scared it to death, no blood and guts! 13 rounds from a Thompson and you have that much left! laugh.gif Skin it, take the meat and make it into "ground mole" and cook it in the chile.

Not only the benifit of airation. But think of how you have increased the value of the property! I can see in the future copper and lead mining.

There seems to be a lot left of that little critter for being hit with a .45.
I would have expected to see a big hole. cool.gif

I think 13 rounds is pretty good, considering all you have to shoot at is moving mound of dirt. I think I’d have put a full L at it, just to be sure! laugh.gif

Yup, she'll look mighty fine skinned, tanned, and turned into a rug for the fireplace. Man, we don't have 'em that big in Texas! Now I have to go find my ass. I know it's around here somewhere. I laughed it off!

Died laughing!?! At some diminutive nimrod with a Thompson? Died of fear maybe, yes! As it turns out, the clip was only loaded with 13 rounds (left overs from a box of 50; hence the odd count). I have had them die from the concusion. Whatever works. Next time, I may just dump a drum!

Just to think, this kind of extermination was once a selling point for Thompsons. Well, maybe it still is.

My sergeant, who is also a diminutive nimrod, has offered to help my tan this mole hide. He is an expert trapper, and good with hide. I expect to make a mole chamois with fur to oil up the wood on my Thompson with!

You know, you could probably sell them on Ebay as a original Thompson accessory. "Original fur cleaning rags for Thompson SubMachine Gun". Very rare indeed. laugh.gif
