Hello,

I am writing book about a lawman in the late 40s Oklahoma. My grand father was a deputy sheriff from the late 50s until early eighties. He was the basis for this character I was thinking on a 1911 A1 for side arm but am hung up on weather to use a Thompson M1A1, some form of shotgun or a semi auto rifle for bigger weapon for the main shootouts. I am not so familiar what a lawman of that period would have used and this is more of a action type novel borderline neo western than a mystery. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Go to the Smith & Wesson Forum, the Lounge section and post your question. There are several old guys who were in LE back then, and many knowledgeable people about the area/period, you're talking about.
