US Army helicopter pilots carring Smith & Wesson model 12 snubnose

Recommended Posts

I saw chopper pilots carrying everything from .38 S&Ws, Colt .45 1911A1s, Browning 9MM, Soviet Tarkorevs,

M-2 Carbines, M-16s, etc! There was no standard "every chopper pilot must carry a specific type of pistol'
