    I got the latest issue yesterday. The cover has some Marines from the 11th Marine Expeditionary Force in a live fire drill on the USS Belleau Wood. I count 3 1911`s:D and one Beretta. Nice story inside with the son of a NYC firefighter who was killed 9/11.

    Force Reconnaissance

    That photo is of 5th Platoon, 1st Force Reconnaissance Company.
    Force uses the MEU(SOC) Pistol, The only thing 1911 on it is the GI Frame.
    The M9 is used by the attached EOD Det.

    Just FYI
