Lucky B-17 Pilot

1
729

Once of the facebook gun groups had this picture. Reportedly from the owner, this Colt M1911 was being worn by the Pilot of a B-17 bomber when a shell burst in front of the plane and a piece of the flak hit the pistol. Most likely saving his life. No doubt the gun being worn in the M3 or M7 shoulder holster.

I can imagine it still hurt like hell.
