Utah becomes first state to have official state firearmUntil this week, Utah had 24 state symbols, from tree (the blue spruce) to insect (the honeybee) to even cooking pot (the Dutch oven).
Now it's added an official state firearm -- the John M. Browning-designed M1911 pistol, becoming the first state in the nation to have one, according to the state legislator who sponsored the law.

You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

I think the National pistol should be the 1911.
National rifle would be a lot harder to decide...1903, M1 Garand, BAR, M14, M16...I dunno.
1911 is an easy pick though.

Sweet. I only own two though'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

If I recall correctly there is a Browning museum at the Union Train Station in Oden off of Wall Ave. I haven't lived there in a while but the Union Bar & Grill had great food to sample after looking at all of John Browning's inventions.“A man ought to do what he thinks is right”
