Not sure about the pistol, but the TV definitely has an Electron Gun (or three) in it.
Electron guns should be banned. Or at least kept out of children's hands.
My guess would be a Thompson/Center Contender. These have endless barrel selections; obviously, this one is a healthy unbelted centerfire. I'll guess .243Win 'cause I can't imagine shooting a .30 from a pistol!
Nice of you to remember both Elvis and Travis Bickle!
I'm guessing you're no fan of the TC Contender.
I think that it would be fun to shoot the TV WITH the Thompson Contender.
Well, the first one is a late Zenith, the second....I don't know.
T/C in .357/.38 Special?The other looks like an analog backwoods gully-side range target.
T/C it is! Someone's husband loaned it out for a range shoot. I think it had rifle loads in it when I first shot it. ow.But he'd taken really really good care of it. It would be fun to blast the old TV though.
I had a TC in 30-30, lots of snap.The 150 grain factory loads hurt.Shot a few boxes of Remington 30-30 Accelerators.Big bark, hardly any recoil.Traded the 30-30 barrel for a 44 mag barrel, still did not like it.Then traded the whole thing for a S&W 28 which was a much better gun for me.
Well duh it's a tc, but the question is: What caliber for an antique television.The answer, of course, is "Bowling Ball"!!Seriously, it's a great pastime, given open spaces and karumblerumbletumble----smash!!!eleventy!
Dumb blond joke,Where do you load the ammo into the first one?
I have often suggested to folks that they take that one eyed monster out to about 300 yards and use it for target practice.Much more better than being mesmerized by the lame stream media, and turning into brain dead zombies.Just my opinion.BobIII
I guess I can't see the forest for the trees here. One is low def and the other is high velocity. One is low tech and the other is low capacity. One is one gun and the other probably has three guns. Curtis Matheson vs Thompsen Contender?This one's going right over my head. ????
the T/C contender always reminded me of the redneck propensity to try to get more horsepower out of whatever platform (cars, guns, power tools, farm equipment) was close at hand, sometimes with hilarious results. i have no desire to own one but i can see as how some folks might.
I have never owned a T/C, but I have fired a few. The 30-30 was cool, but after I shot the 45-70, the 30-30 was "meh".
I thought everyone know about Thompson Centers ...My dad had their .220 firball I think it was.
TC Contender. Used to be made in my home town. A friend had one and the fore stock split while we were shooting 44 magnums. Since it was Saturday, we took a chance and went to the factory. The folks working the weekend let us in and then allowed us to select another set of matched grips and fore stock. That is customer service.
I, like others here, had a T/C with an assortment of barrels - 30-30, .22 and .357 with a screw-on "choke" designed to open plastic shot capsules. Great snake gun. Sold it, along with a couple other guns I really wish I had back now, to raise funds for a SSG Match, which I got lots of good out of.
