    I worked at a nearby P.D. that had a rack of tommy guns.

    The 9mm was developed for pussies who can't handle a 45ACP!

    Yup.

    A sergeant was fiddling with one, one afternoon. He fired off three rounds by accident. The detectives upstairs were not amused.

    In my very limited experience, I have trouble keeping a three round burst on target with the Thompson. I get pulled up and to the right every time. No such issue with an UZI, sten or mp5 and no issues with a 1911 or glock in .45 auto or 9. Oh well, there is a reason to go practice and get instruction.

    The Grease gun was designed to be a flat out spry and pray. I forgot what qualifying with was but it was pretty much point and throw lead your good. They had a large target at 50 yards and by large I mean large.

    PS: I would love to lay my hands on a S&W 4506 at a reasonable price. I know a good gun when I see it, and I like the size of it; it looks like it can handle recoil.

    Yes, the .357 snubby is a great gun, and I would love to have one. I have read about it, and people seem to think that it is a dead round or something.
    IMHO, it is more popular than ever, mainly because of the Ruger SP101 reviving it, as a pocket gun.

    HEAVY .44 SPECIAL OUTDOORSMAN 255 gr. S.W.C. (Keith-type) G.C. (1,000fps/M.E.566 ft.lbs.)
    Do you mean this load, or something else? Those things a $2 a pop. How do you afford them?




    His long gun was an MP5 full auto, I fired it, and it was a hoot. I take it for granted that some State Police have M16's now-a-days. The LAPD has hundreds of them.

    After the Hollywood shoot-out, they bought them from DOD. I have never fired a Grease Gun, but I like the design, and at 50 feet or less, it should do pretty good.
    Not sure what year we speaking of here or which gun. I got issued a SW Model 28 in 71 and it had a hammer block to prevent such exotic events. Could not be fired without the booger hooks applied to the bang switch. Could not be fired by dropping or even tryng to drop the hammer on a live round as per the old Cowboy thumb busters. Those goofy yankees musta had some antique guns of some sort. No wonder that are so nutty up there. lol. Will agree the .44 Special is a great round. Old Sheriff in Bee County killed many a bad guy with his back in the 40s-50s. He had a Colt. Pretty famous old law dog. I have posted a few links about him over the years. Tall skinnky hair lipped guy who talked funny. Name Vail Ennis. He nearly always shot the bad gus six times since thats all the rounds his gun held and he did not shoot his friends.

    When I knew him, he was retired and about 80 years old, and that was 20 years ago. I am going by his say-so, and he must have been a cop during the 1950's.
    He did not know much about guns, except, you pull the trigger, and bang.

    I am reading The 9/11 Commission Report, and I am about 1/4 of the way through it. It is very well written and it is worth reading. [Sep 23 2019]

    The Grease Gun had such a slow cyclic rate that I could easily squeeze off single rounds.

    Yes they did design them to run slow.
