Not to pick, but why does the M16 or variation thereof seem to kick more in the video than the Thompson? I’ve fired both weapons and the Thompson is a beast that’s almost impossible to control. In this vid, she’s in complete control of the Thompson, but both handguns and the rifle rock her whole body. I strongly suspect that she’s firing blanks in the Thompson.
Ahem, sir, may I volunteer for that duty?
The Thompson has a compensator. I don't know what Tommy you shot but they are one of the easiest to control sub guns.
Sorry, but the Thompson is also setting her back. Notice how she is holding it, this keeps her from feeling the recoil as much, since the butt is being held under her arm and not against her shoulder. I would say she learned her lesson about holding the Thompson on her shoulder!
The Thompson a beast, you say? I beg to differ! The gun’s heft reduces its recoil to a mere nudge. My petite wife handles it with ease.
I know nothing of her policies or politics, but anyone with the gumption to put out such an ad in politically-correct 2010 deserves to win!
I had an uncle who kept a Thompson under his bed his entire adult life. Where he lived is was a necessity.
“why does the M16 or variation thereof seem to kick more in the video than the Thompson?”
Probably a 9mm Thompson.
I have fired one in 9mm at the Machine Gun shoot in Albany.
From Wikipedia: “Some experimental calibers were .45 ACP (11.4x23mm), .22LR, .32 ACP, .38 ACP, and 9mm P.”
