Best Answer

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.
