GI Joe: Retaliation & General Patton & M1911
 
I saw GI Joe Retaliation today. It was AWESOME! Exceeded my expectations!

Bruce Willis had a 1911 and said it was given to him, it belonged to General George S. Patton.
Beautiful gun, with ivory grips.

Patton did have a 1911?

Found a sweet Tribute Pistol:

I too saw the movie, pretty good, but I doubt Patton would've had a skeleton trigger in his gun. And holy crap they clicked the safeties off of their Glocks so much.

Patton carried an ivory handled Colt .45 Model 1873 Single Action Revolver S/N 332088, Shipped on 4 March 1916 - Cost $50.00, 4-3/4 inch barrel. Overall length 10-1/4 inches. Weight 38 ounces....

Attachment 94211

and a Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum Revolver S/N 47022, Shipped on 18 October 1935 - Cost $60.00, 3-1/2 inch barrel. Weight 41 ounces.




Patton took violent offense at any reference to his pistols being pearl handled. He said, "Only a pimp in a New Orleans whorehouse or a tin-horn gambler would carry a pearl-handled pistol." In no uncertain terms he would have the offender know that his revolver was indeed "IVORY-G**-F***ING-DAMN-HANDLED" and with that he would turn on his heel and leave.

Both of which are here in Ky, at the Patton museum. It's a sight to see. My grandfather served under Patton in WWII, I use any excuse i can to go to the museum.:)

I've got to get to that museum! My dad served under Patton (Blood & Guts) during the Battle of the Bulge. He was 4th Division Infantry.

It looks like he is one of the good guys unlike some others in the business.

My grandfather was 5th armored.

It's really a special place, though I recommend visiting when the weather is nice so you can enjoy the outdoor portion.

As much as I like the 1911, Bruce Willis shod have used the 6-guns.
