Always had a spot in my heart for Texas – no shit-takers in their history. That and my family lives there. But, I am re-thinking my retirement plans. Any state that [a] picks a “State Gun,” and [b] picks the John Moses Browning (PBUH) – designed 1911 to be their state gun – they get my vote…
“State lawmakers are debating whether to designate a semiautomatic pistol as the official gun of Utah ….The bill to make the Browning M1911 the official gun breezed through a committee hearing this week and is scheduled to be debated by the full House as early as Wednesday.
[T]he state should have the gun as one of its state symbols to honor John [Moses] Browning, a Utah native who invented it in 1911.
How cool is that?
