What Would Be Your State Gun?

This is a discussion on What Would Be Your State Gun? within the Autoloaders forums, part of the Armory category; In New Hampshire, I suppose it could be either a Sig or a Ruger, as both companies have a manufacturing presence in the state....

Here in CT, the only logical choices are the Colt 1911 or Colt Single Action Army. 2 of the finest and most iconic handguns of all time.

I'm afraid it would probably be a Hi-point...
I know people trash em but I've owned a 9mm Hi-point carbine for years. For the money I spent I can't complain. Can be finacky on JHP but with ball ammo its never failed me and shoots surprisingly accurate. Been thinking of trading it for the newer model.

Alaska SB105 was shooting for the pre-1964 Winchester Model 70 .30-06. The bill was withdrawn for some reason though.

Respectfully submitted by the People's Republik of Kalifornia:
The FP-45 Liberator in reverse: (quotes are from Wikipedia)
Quote:
Orignial cost $2.40
Current Value $1200-$2000
So for our golden state, something worth $2.40 would cost the taxpayers $1200-$2000

Quote:
Only the Chinese and resistance forces and the Philippine Commonwealth military in the Philippines received the Liberator in any significant quantity.
Today: would be made in China and sent to California

Quote:
The weapon was valued as much for its psychological warfare effect as its actual field performance
Perception IS REALITY in this state

Quote:
an instruction sheet in comic strip form showing how to load and fire the weapon
With our school system (K-12 and UC/CSU) need I say more?



Point the pointy end toward intended "victim"

Being in Arkansas, either the Daisy Red Ryder or the Wilson 1911, as they're both from here.

Unless someone knows of a gun that tends to marry its cousins. My wife's family has been in this county since the 1840's (I'm still considered an "outsider" since we've only been together 27 years ), and you can't hardly swing a dead cat without hitting one of my wife's cousins around here.

Funny you mention that. I was doing some genealogy work and found out that my family came over to Virginia in the mid-1500s and were in upstate SC by the early 1600s. Since that time almost all of them have lived within three counties in SC. I definitely understand about the dead cat.

ROTFL.

Minnesota? Not sure. Maybe DPMS Panther, AR's made in Saint Cloud.

We shoot a lot of white-tail deer, but half the state's shotgun (+pistol, muzzle-loader and crossbow) and half's rifle. Maybe a Drilling (combination rifle/shotgun).

WV state gun: Remington Model 8 semi auto hunting rifle. Reasons: used by both sides in the mining wars and the same state's love of hunting and sport shooting.

For Mississippi it has to be the Harper's Ferry Musket the "Mississippi Rifle".
Used by Col. Jefferson Davis and his 1st Mississippi Rifles in the Mexican-American war.

Being from NY I can't say, except I know it would only have a 7rd capacity magazine!
