If you had your choice of one style calender, what would it be? Let's see what the poll turns out and I can work on it this spring. I have the resources at hand to make one. But let me know.
Or email me and tell me what you think you would like to see.

Mike,

Since I'm in the next State over I'll make my services available to assist you in a variety of ways (light holder, camera tripod put 'er upper, grip, refreshment getter and oiling down whatever needs it in the pictures). Did I mention this was contingent on #2 winning the poll?

Come on guys !! Vote early and Vote often (for #2 of course)

Cool Mike,
The way this is going, we can be having a new calendar of pure
Thompson, each year...Oldies in 06, Chicks in 07, etc...
Great idea!

I think a combination of #2 with Tommies in the forefront is the best.

You oughtta get help from Mike Dillon.... He has the market right now in my book on MG calenders!

Of course this will be PC so I can prominently post it on the wall in my GM office... laugh.gif

I guess I would have to make the calender PC. No nips no cooter shots. That can be another calender. I have a couple that would pose for that. Oh and old Mikey D pays for his models. I'll give mine a calender.

I had to pick #3 military style only. Since I already have a beautiful wife to admire, I do not need half nekked bimbos cluttering up a good picture of fine American firepower. Besides, if I really wanted a photo collection of bimbos I "legaly" could not bring it into my house. With all this said, it really boils down to the fact that I have two young sons, and I want to set some semblance of a good roll model and show them how to respect my wife and their mother.

I voted # 4.
Everyone puts out a hot sexy chick calendar! Add TSMG's, well it makes it a bit more interesting but hot sexy chicks & machine guns have been done before.
I'd rather see a calendar with board member owned TSMG's. If owners want to pose with there guns so much the better. If you guys would want to see my fat ugly mug ohmy.gif posed with my Bridgeport 1928ac, I'd be happy to accommodate. biggrin.gif

Mike,
Your idea is picking up momentum!
Love the idea of board member pieces, different models, clips, cases, the whole she-bang

Mike--
I'm glad you are considering this project. Although the categories each sound interesting, I've always had a fondness for the 20's and 30's.

Alright already. blink.gif I want fire-power and sexiness! biggrin.gif Don't disappoint me, and the other regulars!! laugh.gif Best, Mad Walter

P.S. Note that I did not say nude, but the people holding the Thompsons could have a certain allure and be dressed in period clothing, even some b&w would be interesting. smile.gif

Let's try this. This week, send me your pictures of the Thompson machinegun only. No semi auto guns. Close ups, full lenght, guns only.
Anybody can send me a photo. Send it to....mike@mikesmachineguns.com
I will store them all and pick the 12-13 best ones. No nudies, well I'll take those also. Make them high quality. If I get several a day, your email may bounce because of that bandwidth storage crap on the server. Try again. I will down load them a couple times a day.
