Hey there , merry thanks givin. I have a queston to all you WW2 Buffs. I was watching Windtalkers the other day. And In the very first scene, Joe was sporting a Tompson, with a drum magzine. Did the Marines use the gangster style Tompson at all? Just wonderin.

Good eye 97 and Doc also makes a good point ...

If one had their "very own" weapon I wonder if they let them take them home after the war was over ... After all ... It was theirs right?

Course too ... theres always that Hollywood -vs- Reality ... ;)

They would have kept them, as they purchased them on their own. They didn't purchase them through the USMC, they just bought them like we'd buy a bb gun today.

It was still legal to own fully automatic weapons without having an extremely expensive permit in those days.
