State lawmakers are weighing whether to name the Colt single action Army revolver the official state firearm.

Cool!, Utah just recently did the same thing. Hope this becomes wide spread.
THE PEACEMAKER IS FINE BUT IN THIS DAY AND AGE I BELIEVE THE COLT 1911 IS MORE POPULAR.
AS Dale has figured out I use references, well out of time.
Guess you don't care about human life, probably life in general.
Dale there is making reference then there is something that are out of line.
I think poster manini has been shooting that 416 to much,its scrambled his brain i think. Oh and poster Dale the 1911A1 is a semi-automatic pistol..
Would it be too much to ask the Emperor to post a clear and understandable comment?
Where our border Red State, Utah, chose the M1911 A1 .45 caliber automatic pistol, a fire arm designed by a Utah native, are we going to settle for a six shooter? Let's go for the Glock. After all it is best positioned to become the fire arm which made Arirzona famous!
nation I have laugh looking a NY CA. So gas up and pack.
Join the Discusion? Is this a sick joke? In light of what happened in Tucson. What is there to discuss? How sick you are? Im as old as any of these clowns in the house and I'm here to tell you 1963 is 47 years in the rear view mirror, and many of you have learned nothing. If there is a war on and you need a gun, then that is one thing. But if you think there is a war going on in this country today, then you know nothing of true war, and those of us who have been to war, understand this. Stop playing war games little boys. you make AZ the laughing stock of the nation.
if I said that or not ok,
Dale I can free you
I would feel bad I killed a cat.
I'm for the Winchester Model 74 lever-action rifle or Henry lever-action rifle...you could get more self-defensebang-for-the-buck at a greater range than a pistola.I'm for my own custom-made Mauser-action .416 CaliberRigby, which shoots 325 grain Barnes X-bullets at 3,100feet/sec muzzle velocity with 6,700 ft/lbs of muzzle energy.Great for shooting Tyrannasaurus Rex Dinosaurs in-season at 400-500 yards. I also like my ole 45/70 Marlin lever-action bear hunting rifle in Ponderosa Pine country firing a 400 grain RN bullet...especially if U jump a 900 lb Jaguar or 200 lb Mountain Lion...hehehe.
Yeah poor but I think it was meant as sort of a draw self defense. Not that I do like the rifles.
If we have to have one the Colt 1873 peacemaker is a good choice,it help settle the West. Shame we couldn't get the Winchester in there somehow,as its another gun that help to settle the West. Without either one,we could very well be part of Mexico,or some indian nation.
Guess it was more widely used here in the early days.
I would have voted the Colt Dragoon. Since there is a mnt range here named Dragoon.
I don't have a problem honoring heritage.
Well put Leon. I too am tired of the "jobs" nonsense. The legislators are working on all aspects of their responsibilities.
I guess some people are mad because the Arizona State Legislature is honoring a pistol, and not just any pistol but a "MADE IN AMERICA BY AMERICANS"....COLT PISTOL.
I guess it it had been made in...MEXICO.... OR MAYBE EVEN...CUBA...VENEZUELA...RUSSIA...OR EVEN COMMUNIST CHINA......then it would have been....OK.
Showing America that Arizona values products that employ....LEGAL AMERICAN WORKERS...is something to be ridiculed and denigrated.
As for... "JOBS"....I guess someone has a "short" memory. Just last week the Arizona Legislature passed a $538 Million Dollar Jobs Bill that our wonderful Governor Jan Brewer asked for in this Special Session. We saw just last week how INTEL is going to build a BILLION DOLLAR + manufacturing plant in Chandler. Thanks to the PRO-BUSINESS.....PRO-JOBS....Republican Administration and Legislature that we now have in place in Arizona
NOT ONE SINGLE DEMOCRAT IN THE HOUSE OR SENATE VOTED FOR THIS ............JOB CREATION BILL.
NOT ONE DEMOCRAT...NOT ONE.
Hey! Jobs, real estate values, budget. Stop the silly nonsense and handle business. If you can't do that, resign, but stop the silly season law making.
