My Thompson is gone
Two weeks ago I visited my across the street neighbor to say goodby as they were selling the house and moving to Myrtle Beach.
I had on the cap that has the stick pin of the Thompson on it.
Right off the guy took notice of the pin exclaiming "Do you have a Tommy"?
My reply was instant with the comment that it was for sale.
"How much?" was his reply.
I priced it and he said he would love to have one.
I left and a day or so later his wife called me over.
She said he had left for Myrtle Beach and she wanted to buy the Thompson for his Birthday.
Sold I said.
I later repackaged the stick pin and took it to her.
I told her to wrap it for the gift and when he got back to town I would go over everything he would need to know to manage the Thompson.
Well, he called later and was all excited.
The Thompson was a very good shooter, but my age is creeping up on me.
I know it is in good hands now.
Adding a note: He has a buddy in MB that has a lot of acres and is a shooter. That Tommy gun will get a work out for sure.

I feel for you KL. l know how excited you were to get it and how much you enjoyed it. I have been selling off some "favorites" also because of my age. My wife's kids will enjoy what I leave them, but I don't shoot as much and can find better use for the money. Two guns I sold off a couple of years ago were a Colt Python 4" nickel .357 mag, and a Colt Diamondback .22LR 4". I still miss them. Your Tommy will stay in your thoughts for a long time. I always wanted one and don't know what kept me from buying one.
