    That gun is a thing of beauty, the shooting is not too shaby either. Thanks for sharing it.

    At what elevation did you position the bipod when you shot that group?

    The bipod is a little long - I wanted the 9-13" shorty, but my cousin had this one 12-20". It was sitting at 12" off the bench, which was not bad for me, but my boy had to set a piece of wood on the chair to fire it:D He liked it though, once he got the hang of it...

    I like the 9-13 myself also. I am 5'10 in height, but have relatively short arms for a man my height, so it becomes even more important.
    Again, that is one gorgeous Thompson.!!!!:)

    Also, if you love Thompsons, this month's Rifleman magazine has a great article on early Thompsons. Enjoy it.
