I am a history teacher by trade but I work full time during the summer for the Sheriff's Office. I was assigned to training this summer( I am a ground combat instructor). I was asked to inventory a gun locker and found 2 discoveries that almost made me cry. The first was a Thompson sub machine gun from 1944 in MINT condition. It was fully automatic and came with 2 20 round clips. The second was even better. An M-1 Carbine paratrooper type. It is fully automatic (with a selector switch) and a folding stock. It also has the jump holster with 1944 stamped on it. I must have spent an hour just looking at them. It was quite an experience. I will take some pictures soon.
