This thread's genesis was my post about my Dad shooting the Thompson for the PD back in the 60's. I stated that I wished I'd gotten a chance to shoot one. In the US Army I got to shoot M-16's, 1911's, M-60's, M-203's, etc. Speaking here strictly of non-NFA weapons, are there any guns out there that you just haven't had the opportunity to shoot that you'd love to pull the trigger on a few times? For me, of course, the Thompson. Don't really wanna own one, just make it go bang for, say, at least one box of ammo.
