    Transferable?

    What model? What condition? With all accessories?

    Without specifics you'd be looking at anywhere from 5k - 45k

    I'll ask about the model but Cuz said it was gift wrapped and tagged for relative who never came back from the war, from that I presume it's all there. She inherited her grandmother's house and found the present in a hidden storage closet. Bunch of other stuff from the first third of the century in there as well, she says.

    Well, she just traded it for a H3 Hummer. I didn't even get to see it. She had promised me a look around the storage room.

    Thompson himself, would probably roll in his grave over that deal.

    Was also going to point out that in his new book, buddy bodyguard says the Thompson was hillarys favourite to shoot.
    Looked for the bit i had read (Drudge? Breitbart?), and the only mention my lousy browser could find was a machinegun forum- and it was 401?404?...tried to find that dead link today, and couldn't even find that.
