I have been a member here since May and thanks to everyones advice I bought a West Hurley M1 Thompson for 10K. I sent the Form 4 and other paperwork in June and it was approved on 9/30. This is my first SMG and I am so glad that I bought it. I am especially glad because there was a W.H. M1 Thompson for sale in Shotgun News for $14,995!! ohmy.gif

The bad part is I have shot 400 rounds through it, and now I want a 1928 Thompson too biggrin.gif



I will try and post some pictures of my nest trip to the range.

HK91,

FYI: You're infected and there's no known cure other than more Thompsons.....Congratulations on the gun and the good price!!!

Problem is, unless you have something in transfer, you feel...... just kinda naked. It becomes an obsession to find the next good deal. At that point, you know there is no known antedote.

Have fun with it. BTW, Wideners in Tennessee has a good deal on .45 right now. Hungarian at $106 per 600.
