The 1911 as Utah's Official State Firearm!

The Model 1911 pistol was designed in Utah by John M. Browning. This pistol was designed 100 years ago next year. In spite of its age, it continues to be one of the most widely used pistols for military, police, competition, self-defense, and sporting uses.

To go along with Utah's State Flower and State Bird and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the 1911, Rep. Carl Wimmer has proposed naming the 1911 pistol as the Official State Firearm.

A great idea! I strongly support this proposal.
