High Holy Day

Yesterday, according to some of my sources, was John Moses Browning's birthday. Of course, I found another source that dates him two days before that. In any event, one of the most prolific firearms designers ever needs some festivities. Go shoot your 1911 variant in celebration.

You do have one, right? To not have a 1911 of some form makes you some kind of heretic. We'll have none of that around here!

Seriously, JMB did more to singlehandedly change the evolution of firearms than anyone before or since. A stunning number of his designs are still manufactured and in daily use by people at the sharp end of the stick. There's very few items designed in the beginning of last century still in daily use now. I'll be lucky indeed if anything I design is ever that widespread.
