You can drop a gun in acid and it’s gone.

You can drop a plastic gun in an acid and it’s gone.

It’s not like this can’t be done now or that it’s a novel idea.

Given this is “House”, the kicker should be “When you’re an a$$hole and you have to deal with stupid people.”

Well that won’t hold back the federales.

Did the Afghanis go force-on-force against the Soviets?

Did the Vietcong start off engaging in set-piece battles against us?

Is that a broken trigger?

Sure looks like it...

It is only meant to fire a few times. I am pretty sure it will do that.

I believe the base model is in .22, but many centerfire cartridges have lower pressures.

They could use .32 S&W or .38 S&W. Both are still available.

Heck, they might be *more* available than .22 at the moment!

And now we have the justification required for TSA in bus stations, train stations, subway stations, . . .

Which is why they made it a "T" for Transportation instead of "A" for Airport. That allows them on highway checkpoints at some time in the future - if it hasn't already happened. They slid that one by without anybody raising the alarm of "Bureaucracy Creep".

They had barrels that would allow them to fire 9x19 rounds in some cases.

Barrels were steel tubing w/o rifling, just a plane old smooth bore firing a big chunk of lead.

PS War time production brought the straight blow back (no Blish lock mechanism) Thompson down to about $78/each, the M3 was $11/each.
