This is why I prefer a 1911. Captain Miller carried one. And there is a half way decent chance he used it to explode a Tiger tank.
Sure, a P-51 flew over at the same time. But I'm thinking there is a 50/50 chance the 230 grain projectile went down the barrel of the 88 mm tank main gun and caused the HE round in battery to explode prematurely.
I wonder how many other tanks have been taken down with pistol/rifle fire?
