A friend of mine let me shoot his tommy gun about 20 years ago and I have been watching for a good price on one ever since. Finally found a used one at about 25% off retail. Its an Auto-Ordinance repro with a few dings but I don’t mind that. I initially told the seller that I wasn’t interested because for the life of me I can’t think of a practical reason to own one. I would never hunt with it unless it was to take out a possum or raccoon in the chicken coop, but 48 hours after saying that I wasn't interested, I was still thinking about it so I told him that I would take it.
I guess sometimes just wanting it is reason enough. Now we just have to wait for the shipping time and coordinating with my FFL holder and then I'll need to find a source for cheap 45 ACP :D
