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.
Republican Rep. Carl Wimmer said the state should have the gun as one of its state symbols to honor John Browning, a Utah native who invented it in 1911. Story
God bless Utah. In honor of this blessed commemoration I offer a small selection of fine M1911's from some great collections. Enjoy.
