: What does the term "gone Winchester" refer to, and what is it's origin?
A fighter pilot who runs out of ammuntion will say he has "gone Winchester" and needs to return to base and restock his guns.
Guess he needs to get a whole nine yards worth?
I do not know why they use Winchester to describe that state of affairs.
