My daughter started drawing cats a few months ago. I didn't really pick up on it but my wife correctly interpreted this as meaning she really wanted a cat. As an aside, she drew them with a little diamond on their foreheads which turned out to be what our cat has.

So we got one day after Thanksgiving, a rescue.

This is Lucky. Sometimes I sing to her DOMO ARIGATO MY LITTLE GATO DOMO domo DOMO domo






My wife had customized socks made for me and my daughter with Lucky's face on them



E:
Last night I came up with her title for use in official duties. The Golden Gato. Wife is not impressed.

Holy poo poo, is there somewhere that does this? This (of our cats) would make a great gift for my wife. Reveal your secrets!


Yep! Found out where she got them: https://www.divvyupsocks.com/

Apparently the French changed the checkering on the MAS-38s buttstock release button at some point.

The actual guns are available for sale according to the guy who posted the pics about them. Here they are at the dealer.

The Connecticut State Police recently sold/traded off some of their remaining M1928A1 Thompson's I Know a couple were resold by the dealer.

I just spoke to the dealer he has 2 M1928A1s left asking 27.5

111 Elite Firearms in Monroe Ct.

If you have a cool $27.5k burning a hole in your pocket.

I think some folks get out of the military and have an opportunity to ~triple their salary working overseas. I'm fairly certain a goon did something like this.

That is neat to see. I did some work at a PD in Ohio once that had a bunch of bullets holes in the front of it from a Thompson during the prohibition era.

The Woodsman is an awesome shooter. 2.5 pound trigger which King may have tuned. I shot it last weekend at a spinner on the 50 yard berm and hit it frequently. Someone who is a better handgunner could probably nail it every time.



E: I took this gun to the smith when I had some FTF (dirty firing pin chamber) and he put on the invoice "This is a very accurate weapon"

1947 Colt Ace, (e:) 34 units away from the end of the model (they continued making the Ace as the Service Model after) with King sights. No more guns until all my house projects are done...

E: turns out they didn't use some of their serials at the very end of the run
