Since we're telling tales, let me pass on one I heard from someone working at APG in a civilian capacity, lo many years ago. I've always regarded it as a sea story.

Allegedly, the gate guards at APG did have chambered rounds in their 1911s once upon a time. This abruptly ended when one was using the hammer & grip safety tang as a bottle opener and sheared the sear, causing an AD. During the ensuing investigation, it was determined that this was common practice. The obvious cure was to go empty chamber.

Perhaps oddly, the part I've never doubted was that someone would try to use the hammer as a bottle opener.
