My uncle was in the Korean War,,,

He told me that he carried a snub-nose 38 in a pouch hidden in his pants,,,
His thought was that if he was captured they might miss that gun.

He said he couldn't remember the brand of the gun,,,
But he talked about his "Owl Head" .38,,,
I suspect it was an Iver-Johnson.

I knew an Air Force AP in the early 70's,,,
He carried a Model 19 instead of his issued Model 15,,,
Apparently he had been doing it for years and no one ever noticed.

How he successfully snuck it from base to base I'll never know,,,
I spent three hours at Frankfurt explaining a wall-hanger dagger in my duffle bag.
