A close friend of mine told me yesterday that he overheard some conversation about the roof caving in at the T/C plant from heavy snow. :eek: The details were that the cave in was over the new G2 production area and as a result, a fire started and halted manufacturing. :roll: Has anyone heard this tall tale too? I seem to think that if T/C was like Rumple Stilskin, all their 10" barrels would be growing into carbine barrels by now. :)

Well guys, I now know for a fact that the T/C factory did not have a collapse.
Being a fire fighter I have the abulity to get information that others might not get so esay.
I sent an email to the chaplin of the fire station that would respond to thompsond center factory. below is cut from the email he sent me back

"Rumor only,there was a multi million dollar fire four or five years ago
and a small one last year.Heard nothing on my pager checked with Chief
******* no problem.

****** *. ****** "[/color]

My call was received in the order it was received by the next availible operator. I heard that so many times I can ........ anyway, called T/C and was told (while she was laughing at my question) there has been no fires, avalanches, tornadoes, or snow storms in the factory!! :-D

Newest date for the G2.......................April 2005. :eek: ......no, no April 2003. :)

Snow collapsing roof and subsequent fire ?!

She must have been fielding quite a few questions regarding problems at the factory. I ask about a roof collapse, she starts laughing and says, " we haven't had any roof collapses, fires, avalanches, tornados, or any other natural disasters at the factory." :shock: Not sure where the avalanches came from, but then she got pretty short (still maintaining professionalism) with me when the G2 question came up! :-D

BUT he couldn't even get a encore, frame, barrel or anything. :eek: they are all on backorder. the shop owner says they(tc) are 8-9weeks behind. :evil: that just burns my hind end. someone over there(at tc) better get their head out of theirs. :twisted:

T/C nimrod. I doubt it on an emoticon. It is way too large.

Dunno what you're talking about on the heavy hitters. Gonna hafta refresh my memory here. Have you asked me a question somewhere I've not answered? How? By e-mail, PM or on a post? If on a post be aware that now that I have Moderators for all forums I read only a small percentage of the threads on these forums and unless you make a new thread with my name it I very well may never see the question if buried in some other thread.

Paul. Matters not to me. I don't own it. I got it from somewhere on the internet. It has a URL and that's how I posted it. It doesn't reside on my site and I suppose some day the site it is on will drop it but for now you can use that url if you know how to get it..

I traced down the picture and got to a protected area - I was able to contact the provider and have a note to them for the owner to contact me. I am trying to avoid copyright problems in the use of this photo. If I can't get a hold of the owner I will just have to make a new one with the same message. Thanks for the help.
