Just saw it on the news. Apparently, a cop in Missouri hung on to the guns after taking down the bandits, they were on loan to a museum for years, and the cop's family recently decided to reclaim and sell them at auction. They sold for $210,000 for both. I have no other details. Anyone else hear about this.

Heard it today. My parents were telling me about the auction on Saturday but didn't know when it ended.

People like Bonnie and Clyde are the reason you can't own a Thompson.
(Unless you are rich of course.)
