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?
