well you probably served a long time ago because we now carry berreta M9s and after 911 we carried long guns around the perimeter of the ship so we could reach out and touch small boat attacks. It was a whole new world after that day I heard the stories of people standing watches with sticks. we carried guns in the new day
My pistols, however, I always kept by me.
