If you’re gonna date a Sig you have to know where to look, it’s not under the dressy dustcover or a hidden acrostic in the Serial Number – but you do have to look up underneath.
So mine’s from 1989, the first Presidential Year of Bush ’41 – the youngest pilot then in the Navy when he received his commission in 1943 – and who flew a TBM Avenger off the carrier deck of USS San Jacinto during WWII, flew 58 combat missions, received the Distinguished Flying Cross, and got three Air Medals for his efforts.
And later he didn’t totally suck as a President nor was he in the Johnson Administration. But he’s almost my dad’s age.
Hell, he could have owned one of these.
The year is 2009 now, so it’s an old gun – there are kids who were born and damn near finished College already – and girls-gone-wild who got pregnant and had kids since this was made.
Damn I’m startin’ to feel all creeky-old.
