    Son of a gun, I never heard that before. You know why Peter Gunn didn't have a son? Because he shot blanks.

    I carried a Colt (detective special, cobra, not sure any more) as an Army Military Police Investigator (MPI) at Fort Bliss, TX (978th MP Co) in the mid-70's. Joined Army CID in 1977, issued a S&W Model 10, 2 inch. Issued a cheap, flimsy 2 slot belt holster. Rarely used it as the revolvers flopped all over the place. Usually carried both the Colt and then the S&W in a upside down shoulder holster. Might have been a Bianchi, until we were issued the Sig M11 in the late 1980s. Carried that is a slightly less flimsy but equally cheap Army-issued belt holster until retirement in 1999. A lot of us tried to buy our S&Ws when we had to turn them in. At first CID indicated we could, then said the Army said no. Never got a real answer. Hope they are all sitting in a depot somewhere and were not cut up or melted down. I actually shot the CID qualification better with the revolver than with the SIG. I may have to go look to see if I still have a weapons card with the serial number on it. Carried the SIG again in Iraq in 2003 as a DOD civilian. Funny side story: in the early 80's, a partner of mine PCS'd to a new duty station, forgot to turn his revolver in. He handed it to me to turn in for him. When I gave it to the unit commander I first opened the cylinder to empty it, out spilled two Army issue 158 grain standard loads and 4 hollow points (not issue). I smiled and walked out of his office.

    Peter Gunn holds up better than most 50 era shows. I love watching them. Pete was COOL long before it became cool. I dearly love the cars on the show.

    We used to watch Peter Gunn when I was a kid, it was very popular. The joke was funny when I was a kid and life was simple.
