Well, got the new Thompson home.  KN series Worchester gun.  After the Cabelas card I won at the company picnic (Thank you Diamond Pet Foods) and a few discounts (Thank you USN) I paid $61 of my own money (Damn you state and federal taxs!)

Yeah, I'm showboatin' a bit, but c'mon!  I suspect I'll never be this lucky again . . .

Went out to the farm and put 50 rounds of my LRN handloads thru it.  No problems at all.  Off the shoulder at 50 feet you could cover all the hits with your palm.  A few from the hip were more scattered, but frankly I was mesmerized by the vertical puffs from the Cutts.

Take down was as I remembered, not hard, a little fiddly with the take down button sliding the fire control off. The tolerances on this one are very tight.  Well made, well machined.  Clean up very easy, thank you American Select.

I've got the military forearm on the way, be nice to sling this beast.  There may be a spring kit in the future, but its certainly manageable for now.  While the PPS will remain my primary Zoot gun, I can see bringing this out if someone sets the targets back a ways.  The Yangtze River Patrol beckons . . .

I think there are some steel cowboys at Windy Ridge that may need to be subdued.....
