Re: Movie ref Frank Hamer/Bonnie&Clyde

As I remember the BAR was on loan from the US Army, I want to say sources agree there was no thompson. It was really a different time....."fully automatic" really had about the same appeal as it did before 1986....as in yea you can buy one but why. It really is just a noise maker. I really think if ...

Re: Long Recoil LMGs of WWI

C&R is one of the few youtube "channels" that I "support".

Re: Movie ref Frank Hamer/Bonnie&Clyde
