First Time Out Wh 28

I did get a chuckle out of the boys. Before the shoot we watched the old WWII training film (on VHS) while we were loading drums and stick mags. On the way out the range they brought up the question of how much recoil there would be. I said that in the training film the GI's shooting the Thompson's were about 5'4" and 130lbs, so you guys at 6'3" and 220lbs should be able to handle it. NUFF SAID

Tonite both boys are actively participating in a Pheasants Forever chapter banquet.
Here's a couple pictures of the old WWII drum I got with the gun. It was pitted heavily, the rotor was stuck, no winding key, and the mag catch was rusted away and I had to weld the lips up and refile the gap. I put it thru the beadblast cabinet, brushed on some urethane 2 part fill primer to fill most of the pits without filling the stampings/lettering, sanded the primer and refinished it with a flat urethane automotive 2 part enamel.
