Great Hunting Pistol Thompson Contender


Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I PURCHASED ONE OF THE FIRST CONTENDERS THAT  CAME OUT.  I BELIEVE IT WAS IN 1968.  ORIGINALLY I GOT JUST THE ONE BARREL A 30-30 FOR DEER HUNTING. SEVERAL YEARS LATER I GOT A 5mm BARREL FOR SMALL GAME AND INSTALLED A 1.5 PUMA SCOPE ON IT.  OVER THE YEARS I TAKEN A NUMBER OF BUCK WITH THE PISTOL AND ALSO MANY RABBITS AND SQUIRREL WITH THE 5mm.  STILL HAVE THIS OLD GUN TODAY AND OCCASIONALLY SHOOT IT.  THE 5mm AMMO IS HARD TO FIND AND EXPENSIVE THESE DAYS AS REMINGTON HAS DISCONTINUED IT.  BOTH MY BARRELS ARE 9".
