I spent from 1983 until 2005 in the Navy and the only handgun I ever carried was a 1911A1, usually a Rand but
not always, they’re ugly, heavy, rattle and not the most accurate weapons but, I loved them and always will.

I went to the armory once to sign out a sidearm, the Chief handed me a M-9, I looked at him and laughed,

he laughed,

then handed me a .45.

Happy Veterans Day to those whom have served

BMCS (SW/DV) ret.

And as my wife reminded me (by kicking my shin) its Remembrance Day also.

Her father was a Lt Col Royal Army Veterinary Corps, and her brother was a Maj. Royal Marines.
