    I have and it was! The other one was a MAC in .380. It fired so fast that the mag was empty before the gun recoiled!!!!

    Yes, I had one. Mine was a Guide Lamp but I forget what serial number. I had ten mags and would load them and empty them in about fifteen minutes. So much fun...

    If you head straight over those mountains behind me, there's the South China Sea. NVA and VC R&R up there. Cav would run a sweep up there every few months. I'm standing on Hwy 1 about 20 klicks S/O Nha Trang. Not so fun. We had the Grease Gun as a truck gun for a while. For serious business I had a full automatic H&R M14icon in the cab. You guys remember the attachment points on the dash for two weapons? Kept them covered in rags at muzzle and action until needed. Lots and lots of magazines. Really glad to get out of there in spring '67.

    Gotta love .45ACP.

    Not as good looking as the Thompson, though.......
    Our local gun club has an M3 for rental.

    I agree, had an original M1icon for some time and a 1928 for twenty two years. Shot it all I could...

    Handled a Tommy gun, felt ill-balanced and awkward to carry. Feeling might improve with more handling but I doubt it. Uzi, FN, AR15 felt well balanced in comparison.

    Yes, used and owned them all too. Yes, a Thompson is heavy. Definitely not for everyone. Lots of today's young soldiers would faint to have to carry an FN but, you know as well as I how superb they were.

    They should try toting a BAR for a while! *LOL* I would definitely NOT call that light weight!

    FN or the MAG. Really tough, accurate, dependable, trustworthy, etc.
