Utah declares the 1911 as their official state firearm

Makes sense, given that Browning was from Utah, but honestly, there are a lot of other good choices they could have gone with, Browning had a lot of great designs, the most obvious being the 1894 Winchester, the Superposed would have been a classy understated choice, I also think the Remington Model 24 and Colt Woodsman would have been a very nice pairing for state pistol and rifle.  But I’m not a Utahn, so it ain’t my decision.  Arizona is looking to declare the Single Action Army their official state firearm.  I hope PA follows suit, I think it’s pretty obvious what our state firearm should be,

Pennsylvania Long Rifle, fuck yeah!

    I may just have to move to Utah, Mormons be damned.

    My baby? Colt Commander .45, rosewood stocks, Novak conversion, Federal Hydra-Shok 230gr. JHP, Wilson Combat mags.

    There are very few situations in life that cannot be handled by a suitable application of firepower.

      Mormons are nice folk, I’m just way too fucking foulmouthed and they’re way too clean for me to ever be one…no way would I ever join a religion that banned me from having whiskey or Coke.

      And yeah, I need to redo the moronblogroll and all that, every time I see you comment I’m like “Goddammit I’m a lazy fuck, probably thinks I’m a real prick ignorin’ ‘im.”

        Oh, he probably thinks you’re a prick for entirely different reasons, so you have that going for you.

        It’s tough to choose just one of his designs but the 1911 is still in use and it might have scared people if they chose the Ma Deuce (another design still in use).

        I saw this and was heartened, we’re a little closer to a John Moses Browning holiday.
        I really want that, especially with the evening, “Firing of the BAR” to end the festivities.

        I was beginning to wonder…

    Dpud – you should have a contest on “What weapon should each state adopt as its State Firearm”.

    California should adopt the paintball gun.

    New York – the zip gun.

    TX – um, the 6.5×52 Italian Carcano? 🙂 Jus’ kiddin’.

    Maybe different cities should adopt, too?

    San Francisco – the S&W model 29 .44 mag – of course. Dirty Harry and Son of Sam can’t both be wrong!

    Oh, and isn’t that a Kentucky Long Rifle?
