Hey Folks, Since I was a little kid my favorite firearm has been the M1 Thompson. I loved watching the old WWII movies and, having a degree in History, I also like the historical aspect of the Thompson. I've always wanted one but am not the type of person to buy something "just because" So I'd like to know your thoughts: Any experience with one? Do you own one? For practical purposes I've had my eye on the full size 16.5" barrel. While I really like the aesthetic of the original 10.5" SBR I don't know if I want a rifle that I'm not allowed to transport across State lines without the gov't permission. This wouldn't be a primary self defense or bug gun; just something that has my historical interest. Thompson 30 + 1 45ACP Semi-Automatic w/Blue Steel Barrel & A So what do you think?
