NRA Louisville - 100th Anniversary of AO Thompson Display

Location:

2 posts in this topic

The American Thompson Association will have a spectacular display of Thompsons at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, KY this coming weekend, Friday 5/20/16 to Sunday, 5/22/16.  Please come on down to see us in Booth 6647 at the Kentucky Exposition Center.  We will be among many other displays put on by collectors organizations, a couple of which I'm also a member of, such as The American Society of Arms Collectors, and the Ohio Gun Collectors Association.  It's always a great time, and you won't want to miss our display, which has a theme of the 100th Anniversary of Auto-Ordnance.  Yes, it's been 100 years since John Thompson, Theodore Eickhoff, Oscar Payne, and George Goll began work designing a rifle based on the Blish principle, which ended up transforming into the most iconic submachine gun of all time, and probably the most universally recognizable firearm in history.  Stop by and say hello, if you get the chance.
