I thought it would be fitting do some real shooting instead of the virtual we had been doing in the past and we had a go at the shooting range.
A 20-something girl was the range officer and explained us a bit briefly how to use and reload the the Thompson and a small handgun. Her first question was actually 'I suppose you know the basics right?'. Eh, well, yeah I have been shooting guns virtually since forever, but maybe you could point out how it exactly works??
Anyway it was a blast. The first time I shot the small handgun it actually scared the shit out of me. It was so loud it seemed it will paralyse somebody mainly with fear instead of hitting him. As the accuracy is pretty terrible and it has such a huge kick it takes you a bit to get it aimed for a second shot. The Thompson was pretty stable though, although the aiming site is so basic you realise it wasn't meant for anything but really close fighting. No chance of hitting anything beyond 50m except if you're really lucky.
