Happy Birthday JMB

John Moses Browning was born on this day in 1855.

Arguably the father of the modern handgun, his designs are relevant today, and nearly every handgun manufactured today is a derivation of his design.

His many rifles, shotguns, and weapons of war revolutionized the firearms industry, and many are still produced today.

What might a genius like him create today, with modern manufacturing techniques and methods…..Rather than the technique of the day….which was “Take a chunk of steel and carve away anything that doesn’t look like a gun”….? With modern materials?
