once actually released onto the yard. Nobody gets frisked in the Military. Once you can go home on a weekend pass, bringing back a pistol is a piece of cake. I didn't trust the bastards to give me a leave before we shipped out for Nam, so I made sure I had my **** shooter with me in Basic. I was all hot to try my 90 gr, 1200 fps locked breech 380 jhp's. I didn't plan on taking the .45 and .22 unit overseas, just figured to maybe do a bit of hunting with it on weekends, until I shipped out. Figured to mail it or cache it if I had to do so. Did manage to shoot a crow with the .22 unit, off of a PX on FT Gordon. clown with a pickaxe chased me, good thing for him he wasn't very fast.
