So I work in the Pentagon, and inside is a display case with a pistol that MacArthur carried around during World War II. A 1911? No, a Colt Pocketlite .380. It has the signed supply and acquisition papers and the holster as well in the display. That pistol is in PRISTINE condition, almost looks brand new with just a bit of wear near the end of the slide from holstering it. How it was told to me is that during World War II, MacArthur's athritis prevented him from handling the recoil of a 1911 .45, so he opted for a smaller .380. His athritis is the same reason that he had zippers installed on his uniforms instead of buttons, so he wouldn't need help changing. Well a few years back the exhibit was undergoing renovation, so they took all the MacArthur stuff and packed it away for storage. After the renovations were complete, they started to unpack and put the items back into the display cases. The people in charge noticed one problem, MacArthur's pistol and magazine was missing! They panicked because they had lost a priceless piece of history, as well as a live firearm. Some time later, Washington D.C. Metro Police called over to the Pentagon reporting that they had picked up a firearm from a crook, and the serial number traced back to the Department of Defense owning it. It was used in an attempted 7-11 robbery. It was MacArthur's .380. Eventually the pistol got returned and sits safe behind it's 1/8" glass display case. This also gives ammunition to the .380 crowd for thier arguments. "If MacArthur carried one during WWII, then it is good enough for me."
