    A havin' been done born in the Beehive State behind the Zion Curtain, imagine how proud I am to see the State where I sprung forth is hurrying to pass a law making the Browning M1911 hand gun as the official State gun! Boy howdy! You can't say mormons don't know where to put their priorities when it comes to doing good in the world. (Note: Ewetaw, where the men are men and the sheep are nervous, is approximately 72%+ mormon.)

    Do you know of any other "official" State guns in the USA? Let's form a gun appreciation group and sit around a fire making s'mores and comparing bullet wounds, 'K?

    See: The Associated Press: Utah lawmakers propose M1911 as official state gun


    Are there any "official" State Claymores (land mines), atomic weapons, knives, bull whips, or finger nail-removing torture devices about which we should send e-mails to the Ewetaw Legislature for recognition, too? I'm surprised (honestly) that they haven't designated an official State serial killer (Ted Bundy and Gary Gilmore come immediately to mind). There's already a song about that "bad" union organizer, Joe Hill. :smile:

    I think the M1911 is a military 45 cal....am I right...? Hard to believe that with all the problems in the U.S.....somebody, in Utah, actually thought this was a worthwhile issue to pursue.....So sad...and strange !

    "So sad . . . and strange" was actually proposed as one of the sayings on Ewetaw's new license plate in the 1970s. "Ski Ewetaw" won instead.

    Don't need one, as I don't suffer from microphallus.

    Even in Spanish the word is spelled barrio even though you might hear a V.

    Most of the aging yuppies I know in and around the Bay Area keep 38s in their glove box, purses, and valises. Fortunately, there is a long history of northern Californians of not being able to shoot straight.

    He probably did hear a V since the Compton Varrio Tortilla Flats is an actual gang in Compton, they're Bloods.

    It's bad enough I have to educate you on economics and politics...

    [edit: I was going to throw out the Fruit Town Puris... but figured you'd think I was botching a gay produce stand in the Castro District in SF, or this mispelling of a gay hybrid car rental agency in Provincetown ;-) ]

    .45 caliber single stack, developed for Colt by John Browning if I remember correctly. This year is the 100th anniversary of its adoption by the US military, so there is a lot of buzz about it lately.

    There are tons and tons of variants of the 1911 platform. It's one of those guns you can spend as much as you want to for. Personally I don't care for it.
