In my seemingly endless quest for self-video glorification, I have uploaded another few seconds of me and my Tommy. This time, you guessed it, it's another fifty rounds blazing from the muzzle of my Westy 1928--with a 21 actuator.

Old Time Rock and Rollin' with the Thompson

The video is about 5 megabytes, and does require the www.quicktime.com plug in.

Today I finally managed some free time. That, coupled with a few hundred rounds, led to some fun. My main purpose was to test fire Michael's (aka Norm) C drum. More about that later. Anyway, for those who love to see the Thompson in action, here ya go.

So, I think the thing that just "makes" this vignette is the punctuation at the end provided by the casual locking-back of the bolt, which seems to occur almost as an afterthought. Consequently, I'd give this production a two thumbs up.

Glad you all like the vid. So, it is a tad melodramatic and perhaps even eccentric, but hey. You gotta have some fun with an 8k piece of metal! Zamm, wait till you see my next hat.......

Wow! Great vid. Your gun seems faster than mine, but I suppose it could be the ammo or the codec.....

Chris,

Now I've heard it all. Blaming your Thompson's performance on Microsoft Windows! laugh.gif

Both videos are great. I wish my 27A1 could do that!

Guess I should have bought an iThompson or a MacTommy. Then I would have never worried about jams, etc.!

Great job CJ.
Maybe we can get a good pumpkin explosion on Saturday! Say 3-4 Thompson's blasting one evil pumkin charging us. You know, the are evil after all. We could put a towel or turbin on it, and it would be justified wouldn't it? As I have said, "kill them all and let the Great Pumpkin sort them out!" laugh.gif

So what am I doing wrong? My video looks like I have no control at all, though I hit the target ( a cooler in this case). I try to do all the things I think I am supposed to, but still feel like it shoot me.
