    I was at the small (25 yard :hs: ) local range with the M44 and my .22. One of the guys next to me had a beautiful, striking old Colt 1911 with a perfect patina. Anyway, they shove out this target of Osama ( :rofl: ) and instead of boom...boom...boom...I hear boomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboomboom.

    Grease gun FTW, I didn't get close enough to see if it was real or a copy, but it looked fun. Worthless for anything except room and trench clearing, but fun :o

    What, exactly, is your basis for this opinion? The M3 is extremely controllable, fires a man-sized round at a slow enough pace that singles are easily doable, and comes with a bunch of bullets.

    And I guess you would be with an MP5...subguns aren't made for distance, they are CQB (CLOSE quarters battle) weapons. 100yd guns should be rifle caliber.

    A tube gun is a gun that was made from a registered "tube" receiver and put together from parts kits. They're "tube guns" because all these guns MP-38, MP-40, Stens, M3s, etc receivers are basically metal tubes and probably termed by collectors to easily talk about and price etc.

    A true MP-40 will bring anywhere from 20k-30k, while a "tube" MP-40 will bring 8k-12k. Only difference being is one gun being made in WW2 by the Germans. And a tube gun being made before 1986 by Wilson, Charles Erb, etc. All are full auto, all are identical, just have different prices because a lot of these guns are based on a collector market.

    "Real" MP-40:

    A MP-40 Tube Gun:

    Or a $9k M3 could have been a Pre-Sample.
