Radar has the toughest duties at the 4077. He has to disturb the officers' slumber if there is an emergency; Margaret is not all sweetness and light when she is wakened. It is Radar's responsibility to safeguard all valuables belonging to wounded patients. When the jeep of Col. Chaffey and his men is run off the road by a U.S. tank late one night, it is SOP for Radar to take Chaffey's vintage 1884 Colt .45 chrome revolver with bone grip and give him a receipt. Frank helps Radar store some rifles later that night and they both admire the beautiful old gun. Radar is the only one with keys to the gun cabinet and to the other bins where possessions are stored; he even showers with these keys. When the Colt .45 turns up missing, it is Radar who faces 15 years in the stockade. Radar says he will enter during infancy and leave during his adultery...Radar is so upset, he gets drunk on 1 beer.

Frank is up to his usual shenanigans when a Colonel arrives for treatment after nearly being killed by a tank. He has a prized possession, a collectible Colt 45 revolver. It is taken from him when he arrives and put in storage. But Frank is with Radar when he puts it in the locker and soon he is showing it to Margaret, pretending it is his. This puts the camp in an uproar, looking for the prized firearm. The sad thing is that since Radar had the keys to the locker, he is seen as responsible, even though his keys were probably "borrowed" while he slept. Potter says he could get fifteen years in the stockade. This seems a bit cruel since Potter knows Radar would never have stolen the gun. Anyway, it is devastating news to O'Reilly. The question is how to get Frank to return the gun.
