nah - it wasn't the Thompson - it might have been the BAR - but I heard on the history channel that it was the sawed off shotgun. (plus you just can't get a BAR anymore these days!)
Specifically the Browning A-5 semi automatic shotgun. He sawed off the barrel and cut down the buttstock so he could conceal it under his coat and swing it into action quickly (both Bonnie and Clyde were very small folks)
Here's a pic of what was taken from the car when they were captured:
(the sawed off A-5 shotgun is the shorter of the two on the left)
Here's Clyde posing with his BAR
(with the Browniing A-5 shotgun propped up against the bumper next to the other BAR)
So what you say?
Well - I am reducing my personal inventory and I happen to have 1 Genuuuiiiiiine old time Browning A-5 Semi-automatic shotgun for sale!! Prefer FTF sale in Nevada - but I'll ship to your FFL for actual costs...
So if you have $350, a hacksaw and a little creativity *see note below
- you too can wield one bad ass CQB weapon - the weapon of choice for Bonnie & Clyde Barrow (when they couldn't get thier hands a BAR anyway)
(or just use it like it is - it's kinda pretty)
Contact me via PM for additional pics & details.
Thank you* note: to avoid becomeing hunted down and stomped on like Bonnie and Clyde were - please remember and apply all NFA rules - keep that barrel longer than 18 and OAL longer than 26!!
