Cripes, look at US small arms of WWI/WWII designed by Browning:

1911 pistol
1897 shotgun
BAR
M1917 MMG
M1919 HMG

I'm sure Seruzawa makes pilgrimages to his museum.
M-2? 567890

If you want a real nice shooting Colt 45 auto varient try to find an AMT long slide hardballer. I use to load the rounds down to around 600 ft.sec. and it was like hitting things with a big rock. Nicest shooting .45 I ever had.

Hi Guys,

The night before last I watched "Lock 'n Load" on showtime. A 1/2 hour-series that is very gun-friendly. No hidden "fear" or "guns will kill you" messages, just people enjoying target shooting and discussing weapons for home defense.

I'm hoping it's a weekly series, but if you can, check it out. I basically follows a guy through his day running an indoor range and gun shop in Texas.

Pretty cool...
