    Hello all,

    I was recently in Vegas and went to The Gun Store (http://www.thegunstorelasvegas.com) for some full-auto fun. I shot a Thompson sub machine gun. As far as I could tell, it was a real 20's - 40's vintage weapon cambered in .45 ACP. It was SWEET! I'd never fired a full-auto rifle/carbine before and was a thrill. Thanks to the Gun Store for making this available.

    Small OC content -- as I was waiting for the bus to go back to my hotel, an employee left the store and went down a couple of businesses to get a cold drink and a sandwich. He OCed the whole way. Sadly, we can't do that in Texas.

    Bob is all about making money, damn Capitalist!!!!

    If you really want to shoot FA just head over to Desert Sportman's during one of the monthly Sub-gun matches.
    Be sure to bring cash and plenty of factory loaded ammo 9mm and 45Acp, someone will usually let newbies use their gun (to get them hooked) as a friendly jesture.

    Damn, I miss shooting those matches.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.
