If you canít stop something thatís attacking with 50 rounds of .45 acp save the last one for yourself.
Beautiful but a bit on the heavy side, Recoil is tamed by the weight and shoots great.

I do a lot of physical work and have fairly long and strong arms so handling the Thompson is no big deal.
For the weaker armed the aluminum receiver model may be the answer.
The Thompson may be pricy to some but you own a piece of history and still get to shoot a real cool gun you can see in hundreds of shows and movies.
Between the 1911 .45 and the Thompson it would be hard to make a better gun that shoots that great .45 acp round that had stopped so many dead in their tracks for so many years.
My father missed seeing my new Thompson by hours, After I dropped my parents off at the airport I picked it up, But he did get to see my new 1911 .45 and he wishes he had kept his service gun, A Remington 1911, He was at Wheeler field when the japs bombed Pearl Harbor and now is the Vice President for the Survivors of Pearl Harbor in Arizona.
