Korina Artists are wonderful. And the vintage carve from the 2001 era is perfect, IMO.

I thought you meant packing heat.

Different thread, haha, but that was the joke.  Here's a very long story, but what inspired that thread title:

My Dad was a C-141 pilot for the Mississippi ANG.  According to my Dad, flight crews were issued snub nosed .38 revolvers for personal protection at the beginning of Desert Shield/Desert Storm, the first two rounds in which were rat shot.  Being that all of these guys in Dad's wing are from Mississippi, those quickly went by the wayside for side arms with a little bit more horsepower.  My father carried a 70s Series Colt .45 Gold Cup, of which I am currently in possession. 

The MS ANG fell under what was then Strategic Air Command I believe (any prior service can correct me), and as a strategic airlift wing, Dad's flight was one of the first flights to head to the Gulf for the military build up.  So they're getting ready to leave Jackson, and the subject of the .38s comes up,  Dad laughs and says he basically said to hell with that and brought his .45.  If they crash, he wants more than a .38 with a third of the loads not even fit to square a squirrel off.  It crosses his mind that he probably isn't the only person that arrived at this conclusion, and he looks at the rest of the crew and asks, "All right, what's everyone got?"

The copilot produces a Smith .44 magnum, complete with 7" barrel from out of his flight suit.  Dad said he was laughing so hard at his copilot and his hand cannon that he was crying right up until the loadmaster walked onto the cockpit and unzipped his flight suit to reveal that he had sawed the barrell and stock off of a 12 gauge shotgun and attached it to a rope so he could sling it over his shoulder and wear it under his flight suit, which he carried apparently for the whole war.  

SAC would send out bulletins about this and that, and if I'm remembering correctly, Dad said there was a morning bulletin that came everyday just going over where every one basically was and what the current situation looked like.  He said about a week into the war, one morning the bulletin, which were printed off, ended with the line, "And everybody watch those boys from Mississippi.  Word is they're all packing serious heat."    

That was always one of my favorite stories he told.  If you're from down this way, it's so perfectly Mississippi. 

For some reason, us sitting around in our houses during all of this talking about guitars made me think of that last night, hence the thread title.

Cool story!  I'm not sure (especially since the Air National Guard units had/has different affiliations/aircraft compliments over the years, depending on mission requirements), but IIRC most ANG transport aircraft fell under MAC (Military Airlift Command) during the Gulf War, at least when it came to getting folded into prolonged Active Duty service with other transport aircraft units and commands.  MAC's transport aircraft was combined into AMC (Air Mobility Command) along with SAC's (Strategic Air Command) refueling aircraft (tankers) in 1992:

I was once attached to a C-9 Medevac Squadron (Clarification/Correction: I was part of the USAF's Pacific Air Forces, actually belonging to Clark's 13th AF Hospital and doing support with the Medevac Squadron, but the Squadron itself was MAC and not PACAF, now that I think about it...gotta love those acronyms!) at Clark AB, Philippines, back in the late '80's; Clark was a busy place for aircraft, lots of transient transport aircraft from the States, Guam, Japan, and elsewhere going through there...I remember one day, running an errand to the flightline in the Squadron's blue Metro van, and passed a C-130 parked nearby on the flight line with it's rear cargo ramp half open.  All I could see of the inside of the tail of the aircraft was a huge pile of locally-made wicker furniture!  Somebody obviously had gone shopping while passing thru.   :rolleyes:

BTW, back then, the unofficial 'nickname' of MAC (probably coined by people who weren't part of MAC) was 'Maybe Airplane Come'.  ;) :lol:
