No real worries

Hey Kootenay. I don't think you were ever in real danger from a submariner with a pistol. I was on a sub tender and a drydock taking care of submariners for 4 years and I don't think they were even issued ammo with the side arm. I'm sure if they did have ammo it wasn't in the pistol. If they got it loaded, they wouldn't have hit anything. We're talking Navy not Marines.

You were more in danger of falling down a hatch in your condition and hitting every rung on the ladder on the way down.
Mike
