Likewise, I remember when the big box stores sold WWB .45s for $9.99 a box -- made feeding the Thompson much cheaper. Now that stuff is prohibitive.

Depends on a number of things. To own a real Class III Thompson you'd have to live in a state that allows it, and then comply with many complicated Federal regulations, get a signature from your local sheriff, etc. So that is one hurdle. But do you mean 'keep' it in your car, as in permanently? I have no idea if that is legal or illegal, but it would be pretty unwise to leave a $20-$40k submachinegun in your car.
I am serious on keeping a firearm in my car, though. Right now I keep a golf club in the backseat .
I was feeling very good today at 100 yards. Did nine, ten round groups and was pretty happy so thought I'd move over to the 200 yard range and try at 150. That's really pushing the boundaries of this gun and scope. My groups were about 2-2.5 inches and I could not pull them any tighter. I think until I get a better scope and accurize this gun some I'm sticking to 100 yards max.
I'm bringing one of them into the shop and I'm going to go out and test it. Under 400 bucks full retail, +P capable and all metal. Looks promising.
There are hopes of Glock releasing one in 9mm. Well, the pocket-size Glock 9mm can't be smaller than the Glock .380, otherwise the .380 becomes literally and completely obsolete. This can only mean, assuming they do release one in 9mm, it will be larger than the Glock .380, which would make it far too large for pocket carry - and in all likelihood not much smaller than a Glock 26. In other words, Glock won't be releasing one in 9mm.
Pretty disappointed. If they had made a Glock 9mm that was the same size as the PM9, it would have sold like crazy.
You'd have to stitch a number of strips of shell together to make to make a rifle sling, which probably wouldn't be too attractive, and you'd probably have to laminate the shell to a more durable leather to make it strong enough for rough service. I don't know about the suitability of Chromexcel for rifle slings. You could no doubt contact various custom holstermakers to see if any were interested in the project.
