    You will love it. I would love to find a 2" to go with my 4" Model 15-4. Let us know how it shoots.

    Nice, I carried some just like it for many years as a USAF aircrew member. Always enjoyed qualifying with it although they would only let me fire every three years.

    I carried the model 15 4" as a USAF Security Specialist,they didn't call them combat masterpieces fer nothing it shot well they did have the 2" fer aircrew and if i remember right the issue load was 3 plastic bullets followed by 3 hollowpoints,we couldn't carry hollowpoints due to geneva convention but if i'm right i don't believe the aircrew were limited by that due to their carry was to prevent aircraft hijackings.One day in the near future i will buy a 2" for concealed carry

    The standard issue USAF ammo for the Model 15 in either barrel length was the M41 Ball .38 Special, with a 130 grain FMJ bullet. This load was issued to all personnel (security forces, aircrews, etc.)

    BTW, the Geneva Convention deals with the treatment of POWs, not ammunition. That's governed by The Hague Accords.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    That's one fine old classic!

    You're correct on the aircrew load, the three plastic tipped loads were "beanbag" rounds followed by three hollow points. On certain missions that required the entire crew to open carry then we were issued FMJ loads.
