Today is John Browning’s birthday. Arguably the most important gun designer in history whose legacy continues today. Just a few of the guns he created: Colt M1911, Browning Hi-Power, M2 50 cal machine gun, and the M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle. He’s also responsible for the development of numerous cartridges, including the 45 ACP.
One of these days I’m going to make a trip to the Browning Firearms Museum in Ogden, Utah. In the meantime, I guess shooting a couple of his inventions will have to do.
Winchester Model 1897 12 Gauge “Trench Gun”, Remington Model 8 chambered in .32 Remington, Colt Woodman .22 Long Rifle, and Colt M1911A1 .45 ACP
