Thompson Collecting

Aficionados won’t be surprised at the ease Steele County had in selling this.  Thompson collecting is a pretty passionate sub-culture.  You do need a class III license, because these are full-auto.  You also need to be wealthy enough to play the game.  Seems to me the going rate is actually what was experienced here, about $40,000.

I read this book as maybe a 12, 13 year old:

With the benefit of hindsight I am reminded now how conceptually off the wall this book is.  Girl gets Tommy gun.  Hilarity ensues.

It’s a bit out of fashion now, ya figure.
