Gordon's Gun Closet #12: Thompson

50 mins - Published Tue, Sep 6, 2016 by Gordon Frye and Nancy Frye

It’s big, it’s heavy, it’s a classic… it’s the Thompson submachine gun, beloved of Chicago gangsters, Wild West heroes, and the Allied Forces in World War 2. We’ve been trying to keep the episodes around 30 minutes, but this one is so fun to talk about that we went a bit long.
