Arizona Names Colt Revolver State Gun

Spurred on by Utah's love of the Browning M1911, the Arizona legislature has named the Colt Single Action Army Revolver the state's official gun. The 32-25 vote approving the measure makes Arizona only the second state to officially recognize a state firearm. From the article: "'Anytime you see a Western movie, the revolver in John Wayne's hand is a Colt single action,' Arizona state Sen. Ron Gould (R) told Reuters. 'This is a historic firearm and it fits well with the story of Arizona.'"

I love the feel of mine. I don't care how old the design is.
