    Hey 100...that sand bagged position with the arch atop looks like you had some spare time on your hands...nope, must'a hid that old Packard Bell tv...just couldn't spot it this time round. Bet that chopped and channeled
    .45 would climb 90 degrees north on about the 4th round...I remember firing the Thompson way back in the early 50's...I recall being trained of laying it over to trace across your target from left to right as that sucker climbed so excessive...chief

    The ole grease gun :D What a fun one to shoot. The rounds were so slow you could see em going down range. PC and tank drivers carried em most the time.
