    John Moses Browning's Birthday

    I just noticed that today (Jan 21) would have been JMB's 152nd birthday.

    I have seen the thought go by before, and agree his birthday should be a national holiday. Due to his creating so many well designed guns, if I had to pick any one individual to name as having contributed the most towards this country's history, he is one of the top few. His contributions doubtlessly saved innumerable soldier's and civilian's lives as they carried his superbly designed equipment into battle for their country and their own defense. Even after 100 years, many of his designs are still being built as new guns, with few (or no) changes.

    I would recommend one of the mods put his name in our birthday calendar, but we'd end up with a rush of requests to also do entries in memory of Colt, Stoner, Garand, and Ruger to name but a few.

    Happy Birthday, Browning. Here's one for you -

    JMB was for sure one of the major players in design - which is indeed supported by the prevalence to this day of the tried and tested examples. They are in a sense timeless - you can't re-invent the wheel altho many try

    Happy B'day JMB - you have a lotta fans if you did but know.
