Winchester 1905 was the functional prototype of them all.....
Lever Action '94 in .30-30 was what they carried "in the trunk" here when I was a kid. Local police had one Thompson that sat in the Chiefs safe: He brought it out on the 4th of July and let the local boy scouts shoot it if they wanted to. Must have worked, one of the scouts is now Chief himself and several of the officers were scouts too. Times have changed, but not a lot: Cops still play with guns and occasionally let friends have a go. The last full auto I shot was a H&K MP-5 that lived in the trunk of an FBI agent friend.
Pay for the ammo... shoot at cans.
Some things never change.
