Anyone tracking the news that St Louis PD plans to auction off their stash of Full Auto Thompsons? To include 1921's, 1928's and M-1's.

Must be some of the few Thompsons Roger Cox overlooked in the 1970's. :)

Looks like a Lewis Gun in their arsenal as well. Video talks a bit about letting go of the guns go for sale:

Oh, cool, I know some deep pockets that have been looking for some of those Colt's, the one ol boy is about 98 years old, the most fantastic Colt collection I have seen on the west coast. I guess he want's to leave a collection for the family to enjoy.

I worked on the ol boy's car collection for 5 years before he showed me his walk in vault.
