    Don't know if I should post this here, or History, but I thought you guys might enjoy another "Guv'ment" story from WWII.

    In March '45, a pilot officer and an enlisted "spotter" in an "unarmed" Piper Cub spotting Artillery in Germany saw their German counterparts in a Storch below them doing the same thing.

    They dove on them, and both the pilot and observer "emptied their .45s at it," and actually damaged it enough to make it force land.

    They landed next to it, and after reloading, took the German pilot and observer prisoner.

    Read it in "Dirty Little Secrets of WWII," GREAT Book!!!

    The section ended with, "4 more and they would have been Aces!"

    Thought you guys would like the story...

    EXCELLENT!!!!! Man, I really wonder how many stories there really are out there on the .45????? The most dangerous game taken with the .45acp is still my favorite, but this one you mentioned is going to be a close second and one I have never heard......THANKS POLISH!!!!

    Yeah, and I forgot to add, the name of their Piper Cub was "Miss Me."

    LTS, what was the most dangerous game taken?

    I got a Colt series 70 that i love to death. It was my main plinker and frog shooter until I got my RG 10.



    I fear we have awaked a sleeping giant and filled it with a terrible resolve. Jap. Admiral Yamamota directly after Pearl Harbor. If the women don't find you handsome, at least they will find you handy. Red Green. I am the ILLUSTRIOUS POTENTATE!
