The P-35 9mm/1911a1 .45acp trivia makes sense but it could also have made a lot of sense for Jones to pack or take handguns abroad(Europe-Asia) where he could easily obtain more handgun ammunition. 9x19mm or even .455 caliber rounds might have been quicker to find or cheaper in the mid/late 1930s.
A Browning or FN Hi-Power 9mm(14) would have held more rounds than a 1911 .45acp(8) too. When you go to remote areas(jungles, deserts, etc) that would be important.
