Ashley Goes ‘FULL AUTO’ With The British Sten Gun & A Thompson M1A1
Ashley R. McMillion (aka ‘Ash’), goes full auto with a British sten gun and afterwards , she picks-up a Thompson M1A1 and fires that weapon, she does this while rocking-out to Soundgarden’s hit song, ‘Black Hole Sun’ in the background.
These two iconic weapons from World War II are very interesting. While everyone is familiar with the Thompson (at least I think they are), not all that many folks are all that familiar with the British Sten Gun and it’s history, so let he help you out with that okay ?
In another article here at Survival Nation, I published a piece with Ashley firing the Yugo PAP M92 with a 75 round drum. Ashley is more than just a pretty face that likes to shoot guns in YouTube videos, but that is another story, for another time, alright ?
About the British Sten Gun according to Wikipedia:
The STEN (or Sten gun) was a family of British submachine guns chambered in 9×19mm and used extensively by British and Commonwealth forces throughout World War II and the Korean War. They were notable for having a simple design and very low production cost making them effective insurgency weapons for resistance groups. STEN is an acronym, from the names of the weapon’s chief designers, Major Reginald V. Shepherd and Harold Turpin, and EN for Enfield.Over four million Stens in various versions were made in the 1940’s.
