  1. I saw a Thompson once over there. Myself, I carried it’s poor cousin the M-3 A1 Grease Gun for the last part of my tour.

  2. “Rolland the headless Thompson gunner…” First thing that jumped intomy mind when I saw the article. Warren Zevon to the maximum!

  3. But really, if I wasn’t retired I’d want one – yes. Every fightin’ unit had one or two – they rarely got jammed and mud didn’t ruin quickly as long as you took half care of them.

  4. I have two fully automatic in the box never fired. Machine guns are fun for 5 min.
    I would rather have a three burst option.
    Yes, you need an FFL to own full auto guns.

  5. I once got two paychecks in the mail from the company I worked for. I went to the office up front and told them as I knew they’d get it back some day if I spent it. They asked if my supervisor hadn’t spoken to be about it. I said no. It seemed that for over a year, I had not been getting paid for a cost of living raise I was supposed to get and accounting caught it and figured what I was owed and that accounted for the extra check. I went and bought a new “Tommy Gun”.

  6. So much misinformation. This gun is semi-auto. No new machineguns since 1986. And no, you don’t have to have a FFL for a Class 3 weapon. You must live in a state that allows them,contact a Class 3 dealer, pay for the weapon, fill out a ATF Form 4, get fingerprinted, pay $200 for a Tax Stamp, and wait 8-12 months to receive weapon.

  7. I’ll defer to others but, I never saw a Thompson. Saw a lot of CAR15, M2, M14, M16, M16A1, M40, M60, M72, M79, M203, 1911, .38, 12 ga. shotguns, F1, AK, SKS, M1A1, M-1, M-2 and a bunch of old US weapons we used in Korea we gave to the Cambodians. There were a bunch more anti-aircraft, RPG and chicom/Russian weapons and mortars.
    I carried a 1911 and M16….until I bought a 30 cal. M2 from an ARVN that had the barrel and butt shortened.
    Never saw a Thompson…. If I had wanted one I would order one from Thompson to shoot for a lot less than $3000. AND — I Don’t need an overpriced purdy wall hanger with gold accents. Heck, at $100 a month payments, I’d be dead before I paid it off.

  8. Purdy enough, but 3 grand will buy me either
    a nice Benelli Super 90 M3, or a AR-10B. Last year’s
    “daddy’s” money was spent on a Glock 43, perfect for
    tropical weather carry down here.

  9. Those “engraved” special edition weapons the NRA pimps in their magazine have all the style and class of rimz on a Bugatti Veyron.
