I don;t call the prices that on thompson Kits very resonable nowdays. Even though his prices are very Good, If I had the money I would have ordered thompson parts, his is the cheapiest I have found ! everyone else is 900 and up. and some are just plane nuts. There was a time when I ordered 4 thompson kits and the didnt even come to a grand. But those days are gone!
And becomming totally disabled really sucks & puts a dent into everything.
So not a big deal i'll get what I can and build it and make it go BANG...Doc
