First visit with the Thomp

I took my Thompson M1SB to the range today. First rounds down range, it functioned I flawlessly, put rounds where I aimed them and recoil was negligible. The recoil spring are very stiff and with the stock charging handle I use a piece of wooden dowel to assist. Once locked back after last round I could release the bolt without the assistance of the dowel rod. It was worth the wait. Just a personal thought, I can't get used to the 16" barrel versions of the classic firearm.

It took me a little bit to get used to the trigger, very long pull, but after that it started to group nicely just firing at random paces
