    Yes, that is a great COLT.. When I first joined the Navy I stood quarterdeck watch with one of these on my hip. I never really looked them hard to find if they were Navy marked or not.. At 18, I had other pressing matters.. Girls and where to go party!

    Spent many an hour as Roving Patrol and Missile House Sentry wearing one of these 1911s on my hip in that
    black leather holster. I later became the ships Shooting Team Captain and had access to the Small Arms locker
    and ammo. I'd checkout a pair of 1911s and a can of ammo for the weekend for some shooting out in the desert
    east of San Diego. This was in 1970-73 and I sincerely doubt such action would be authorized in today's Navy.
    What a shame....

    BTW: does DISBO100 have anything to do with "Dispersing Officer", Just wondering...
    AIM small, MISS small then RELOAD!

    Nice, I only did 22 years, retired in 93' - Went in during Vietnam, called it good after Desert Shield / Desert Storm deployment.
    I spent all my time on Cruisers, mainly due to my job, MISSILES & GUNS. Who else on here can say they've fired a 5" 54 gun?

    Have a great day shipmate - Go Navy!

    The Navy actually has a book, looks to be about the size of a large dictionary filled with all of our crazy acronyms.
    Here's a few for ya: STANAVFORLANT or COMCRUDESPAC or COMNAVSUFLANT - nobody said it would be easy

    Go NAVY!

    Being a "boot Ensign, for some of my collateral duties, our then Capt. "P.T. Boat" John D. Bulkeley gave me the Base Armory and OIC of the R&P Team. Kinda like putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop! We had some very nice weapons and more ammo than we could possibly shoot...but we tried!
    Thanks for your service, guys! One thing I learned on my tours, Chiefs run the Navy!
