    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    It's not about what I shoot. I shoot Remington too. But here's the reason he's St. John M. Browning.

    Created the 1911 (still in use with law enforcement and military today) and Browning Hi-Power. The M2 heavy machine gun and it's cartridge, the .50 BMG (still in use with the military).

    Many slide operated shotguns, the Colt Woodsman .22, several lever action Winchesters.. The man's designs can be seen all across the firearm spectrum and it's for all of this, he's been canonized as THE Saint of firearms.

    Just found out there's a "Little Red Book of Fly Fishing."


    You know who else had a "Little Red Book?"

    Ah hah!

    As we can see from this thread, there is a lot of confusion and infighting within the water whipper community. They'll even argue about bugs.

    Eh...

    Browning didn't really design the Hi Power. It was mainly Dieudonné Saive's work. Saive designed the magazine and really refined it. Browning's original design was striker-fired.

    No, it's just I'm the only one with a clue.

    I'm waiting for George to weigh in...he knew Charles Orvis.

    Given your predilections, I'm surprised you didn't go with G.E.M. Skues

    I can say with 100% confidence that The Maclean brothers and their preaching dad ruined our sport for us.

    I bought my dad a Penick book for his birthday once.
