I’m headed to the range tomorrow to exercise three variations of his creation. A Colt Defender and New Agent, and a Springfield Milspec I’ve tricked up with a few add-ons.

My 1911 style is right here at hand. Browning was one of the greats.

Giffords is still alive, JFYI.

Now, how about a list of scoundrels which J.M.Browning's inventions kicked off the planet?

Cool. Some years ago, I toured the gun shop which his Dad set up in Nauvoo, Illinois. What I found the most fascinating is that how they could come up with these improvements with tooling and machinery far less sophisticated than the average handyman has in his garage today. A real tribute to American ingenuity.

(Parody of John Brown’s Body, by William Weston Patton)

John Browning’s cartridge fires a-smouldering from the breech,
John Browning’s cartridge fires a-smouldering from the breech,
And his guns keep firing on.

Chorus:
Glory, glory, shoot another one,
Glory, glory, shoot another one,
And his guns keep firing on.

His guns have gone to Africa, to put vile buggers down,
His guns have gone to Asia, and have put vile buggers down,
His guns have gone to Europe, and have put vile buggers down,
And his guns keep firing on.
Chorus:

John Browning’s rifles have put tyrants in their place,
John Browning’s rifles have put tyrants in their place,
And his guns keep firing on.
Chorus:

John Browning’s guns have fired so that nations might be free,
John Browning’s guns have fired so that nations might be free,
And his guns keep firing on.
Chorus:

The angels up in Heaven now are looking kindly down,
As devils down in Hell below, are sent new clientele,
And his guns keep firing on.
Chorus:

I celebrated by shooting my Browning rifle yesterday.

I don't plan on getting a Browning tattoo anytime soon, though.

But he wasn’t able to get to his BAR while Frank Hamer was pumping rounds at him from his Browning designed Remington Model 8 with the 15 round magazine.

I bought mine more than 20 years ago ... it has held up remarkably well to thousands of 9mm NATO (and equivalent reload) rounds.

I bought my first one in 1968 just after the race riots. I decided a single action would not get it. 6 vs 13 rounds.
