As I recall, the .30 carbine just nicked him, so Borman finished him off with Georgie Patton's M1 [captured at Bastogne during the Bulge]. Don't know why I forgot that!
Then, I think that his adjutant, Gunsche, did the coup de grace with a M1911A1 that will be sold at the CMP auction the end of this year! It supposedly has "Blood Rust" [remember those descriptions for "RUST" especially if it was a rusty RUSTY Luger or P-38]?
Six months from now, someone will be quoting and posting this thread.
*Adolph tried to put his toe in the trigger guard of the carbine, but failed to take his socks off; so he was a bit sloppy with the shot.
