I'll catch hell for this....
but a M240B/G is pretty sweet.

If I had to pick from a 1921AC or a M240B or G model..... the FN would be sitting in the den.

But I do love my thompsons a lot too biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I gotta go with the wild assed 18 year old bimbos with big tatas, holding a Thompson in each arm and whipped cream sex tongue.gif Money would be next, because I could buy a Thompson and a house.

What's better gunwise? Stoner 63A Commando. Oooooooh rolleyes.gif I make no apology to the Thompson for that bit of wander lust. The Stoner 63A Commando is my "Holy Grail" and I would gladly give up both of my Thompsons for one.

Why does this sound like a passage from FEAR & LOATHING ON THE ROAD TO LAS VEGAS, by Hunter S. (irony of ironies) Thompson?

A fashionable sporting magazine in New York had taken care of the reservations, along with this huge red Chevy convertible we?d just rented off a lot on the Sunset Strip...and I was, after all, a professional journalist; so I had an obligation to cover the story, for good or ill.

The sporting editors had also given me $300 in cash, most of which was already spent on extremely dangerous drugs. The trunk of the car looked like a mobile police narcotics lab. We had two bags of grass, seventy?five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high?powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi?colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.

All this had been rounded up the night before, in a frenzy of high?speed driving all over Los Angeles County?from Topanga to Watts, we picked up everything we could get our hands on. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Well, I was going to say "two Thompsons" but Jim beat me to it. Can I up the ante? If so, I'll say "two Thompsons, and C drum (and a lifetime supply of ammo?)"

StoryforU,
Indeed, it sounds like Hunter "Thompson", because it is basically a statement he made years ago about having a Platinum Amex card wasn't what it used to be.
I belive he said the above was all he needed in life. I added what I would buy with unlimited funds>
Cheerio, Zamm
