    I hope you do not mind, I edited your post to include the photo of the Thomson. I was goofing around and stumbled upon linking it here directly. Of course if you delete the photo from Photobucket, it will be lost here too.

    Is the two photos of airplane modeling, is one a Sabre and the other the Arrow? My knowledge of aircraft is terrible.

    Love the Thompson. It's a decent gun although they are heavy and too long in the butt stock for most people. That being said, the weight makes it a pleasure to shoot.

    Hey guys! Don't mind at all as far as the pic goes. I would love to fire a Thompson one day. Unfortunately this one is a deac of course,as we do live here in Canada. :) Yupper,the white aircraft is an Arrow and the silver is a sabre. I was given those model aircraft long with about twenty others.Another hobby of mine,modelling that is. I just need to fix them up a bit...shoddy craftsmanship on the paint job. :P

    If you're ever in Vegas, or even Arizona or Texas you can fire one.
