“To name my favorite gun is easy: for 35 years, Colt’s .45 automatic pistol is the only side arm I have used, It was the first pistol I ever shot. 1 used a Colt .45 auto for three years in the Marines, five years with the Dallas police, seven years in the Teas Highway Patrol, and 20 years in the Texas Rangers. I like it because there are eight shots instead of six. With modern ammunition, .45’s have metal piercing ability. When I use a rifle, it is a .3006 Remington pump. I wear my engraved, silver grip .45’s loaded and cocked, with safeties on.” From Guns Magazine, July 1957
