He learned this as a class B actor iun Hollywood:

 

 

 

I was in Secret Service headquarters when they told me about former President Ronald Reagan’s biggest secret.

I write fiction for a living, but in my thrillers, I try to get the details right. So what better way to understand how a President lives .. than by spending time with the Secret Service agents who spend so much time with him?

So there I was, on my tour of Secret Service headquarters. The agents had taken me into a small museum they have on the premises. It’s a room lined with photos of Presidents and archival exhibit cases filled with Secret Service artifacts.

We were talking about Reagan and that day he was shot. Then one of the agents offered this secret: When Reagan was President, he carried his own gun.

I couldn’t believe it.

‘It’s true,’ they said. A .38. Reagan used to hide it in his briefcase and take it on Air Force One.
