He Downed a Zero with a .45 in WWII, Hanging From His Chute.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on October 7th, 2006

Col. Owen Baggett, a B24 co-pilot, was hanging in the shrouds of his parachute when he shot down a Zero in combat during World War II. Col. Baggett recently passed away so it would be fitting to be reminded of his exploits one more time. You can read his story here listed among other Legends of the M1911 Pistol.

How do I know anything about this story? I know because another blogger tracks such stories and many other interesting happenings and he sends out a regular email to which you can subscribe. His site is called “The Sight M1911A1” and you can find it here. 

If you haven’t visited or signed up for Syd’s “News from the Sight M1911” I suggest you do it today.  Syd posts links to RKBA news, equipment reviews and stories of interest to shooters while sharing his love of the 1911A1 pistol. I’ve always enjoyed receiving his emails. You will, too.
