Thx Ed. I recon I should have explained the Thompson a bit more. The BAR would never have worked with him riding the Harley, http://www.network54.com/Forum/110741/message/1485807669/Hog+of+Hogs,
and a havre sack was added to hold the Thompson magazines. Not unheard of for guys to change out weapons or ditch that heavy pig either. I pondered taking those BAR magazines off long ago, but decided poetic license would be in order, and it gives a bit of interest to the scene.
Thx for the compliments Ed.
