During the 1914 Punitive Expedition against Pancho Villa "The first sergeant of the U.S. Scouts was said to be able to track anyone over any terrain. He and his comrade are armed with Model of 1911 U.S. Army pistols, shown here with a U.S. Model 1912 holster."

The book US Small Arms in World War II: A photographic history of the weapons in action by Tom Laemlein has multiple pictures of US handguns and the other small arms in action during WWII.
