I carried one during Desert Storm, but most other units had re-equipped
with the M9 (Beretta) by that time. SGT's and up had to carry a
sidearm, but we were always short and I did my best to be one of the
last in line to sign one out. Had I known I would have been OT, I
might have been more enthusiastic about it ;-)
