Colt model 1911, 45 caliber, semi auto pistol, which was heavy, not very accurate and prone to jams if not cleaned EVERY day. Issued to those who were in a vehicle, such as a APC or a helicopter. You know that you are in BIG trouble if all you have to shoot back with is a dinky little pistol, and the other guys have AK 47's, or 12mm heavy machine guns. The sidearm for the Air Force was the Smith-Wesson .38 caliber revolver. These were issued to pilots.

Its not the popularity of the soldiers, but the conflict they are in. A great example was Vietnam. Most hated the war itselft, and why we were over there, not the soldiers.
