US armed forces issue weapon.

Yes, I'm a geezer. Sorry.

But can't you just feel the history oozing from my posts?

Oh, that's perspiration, never mind. Sorry... --

First pistol fired more than once was a nine shot .22LR revolver. First pistol given to me was an AMT Lightning .22LR, the model that got AMT pretty much sued out of business for copying its design from the Ruger Mark. I still have it but don't shoot it.
