Buzz B Berkeley of Vancouver Washington stumbled onto our site while searching for things to do in Las Vegas when he’s not busy teaching people how to win at Craps. I contacted Buzz and asked what kind of firearm he would like to shoot while here. He asked about shooting a Thompson Machine Gun so I made a call to Ernie Beckwith over at American Shooters and inquired about their Tommy Gun. Ernie told us to come on over once Buzz got to town….So we did. Ernie then introduced us to Alika Liborio who told us a bit about the 1928 Thompson Machine Gun. After that, Buzz and I took turns trying it out. The rifle was about 1.5 times heavier than I had expected but it was very accurate and a heck of a lot of fun. Next time I’m going to have to wear a Zoot Suit though.
