Announcing the end of the availability of the book "Thompson: The American Legend."
The book that was written in 1997 by ten different authors and myself is now out of print. We sold
over 5000 copies of this book. In my humble opinion it was a pretty darn good book with a lot of
very usable information and photographs.
However, time marches on and it has become time to build upon this text and to create a new book.
I am fortunate to have several new authors writing new sections which will tie the history together
of this firearm from it's birth in 1917 to present day. The book should be available sometime around
the end of the year. Title is not decided and neither is the price, so do not start calling me. I will be
starting a list of people interested in the new book and will supply information as it becomes
available. People on this list will have the first chance to receive the new book. We will probably
have some rough drafts available for review at the All Thomspon Show and Shoot. Also, we will
have a lecture on one of the new chapters of the new book, during the Show.
Just to add to your interest, I will be running interesting images from the new book in this newsletter
to whet your interest.
Shown below is a genuine FBI issuse 10MM, yes I said 10MM Thompson. You will have to wait
for the whole story in the new book.
