I am going to conduct another survey. If you would like a certain question to be asked, please send it to me or post it here in the next few days.

my email is johntitsworthjr@sbcglobal.net

Any kind of question is OK for this type of survey as I am reaching out to all. There is no way I can ask all of the questions, but I will TRY.

Here is a sample of the questions on the survey:

Do you own a fully automatic transferable Thompson submachine gun of any kind?

If you don't own a Thompson Submachine gun of any kind, do you plan on purchasing one in the next year or so?

If you were to buy a Thompson this year, what would be on your wish list?

If you were going to buy a semi-automatic Thompson which one would you buy?

If you bought a semi-automatic Thompson, would you consider having a short barrel placed on it?

and so on...

Please add you own questions. E mail if you don't want them shown here early. I will leave this open till next Monday Dec 29,2003 and then start the survey.

This in itself is NOT the survey, it will be listed through a link. This is just so people can add any questions THEY would like to see on the survey before I make it up.

If you have any questions that you would like to see added to the survey post them or e mail them to me.

Thanks

How about.... " Are you in the long tedious frickin slowest process in the world, of buying a f/a tsmg?" You know where you actually own one, but it lives somewhere else until some rubber stamper says it's ok to take it home where it belongs.....

Ok I'm in my corner Chris.

That's an after market thing available from Brownells:

http://www.brownells.....LACQUER-STIK~

It is used to bring out the stampings and numbers so they can be photographed easier.

I just about woke the baby laughing at this one. Then I had to explain the humor to my wife. I think she got it. I just know the picture is going to give me chuckles everytime I think of it in the next couple days.
Thanks for the laughs.
