    There are "Official State XYZ" for fricking everything nowadays from bugs to weeds to might as well have a gun one too. But at least everyone can pick something that actually lives in the state for those. For guns I think it'd be a little cringe if it's not a gun with some real history with your state, or some real history in general and made in your state. If your state has never made any guns, or didn't use any clear one in some important historical battle or something, then picking a state gun would be a little weird. And if you have to go all the way back to the revolutionary war and just go "uh, musket/american long rifle" that's just America itself not your own state thing might as well not bother.

        The Brown Bess was a smooth bore musket. Not a rifle.

        A musket OR american long rifle they're not the same thing. Also it would have to at least be a maker in your state.

      There were dozens, if not hundreds, of distinctly unique regional styles (or schools if you know what you're talking about) of longrifles from the mid 1700s through the late 1800s. Most states east of the Mississippi River would not have a hard time identifying a longrifle that would be a suitable candidate for a state rifle, but actually choosing one would be a difficult task. For example, North Carolina alone has nine riflemaking schools that have as of yet been identified. But which rifle from which of these nine schools most exemplifies North Carolina longrifles? Would it be a rifle from the Jamestown school of Guilford County, which produced the most rifles of any school in the southern states in the 1800s? Or would it be a rifle from the Rowan school (picrel), which are often considered some of the finest longrifles to come out of the south? Missouri seems to be the only state with big enough balls to pick a singular gunsmith for their state rifle.

        Anything distinctive for florida?

          Outside of import guns of different designs, the only thing FL has going for it is Keltec products. For historics, it would be guns designed in other states. So likely a KSG or Sub-2000 would be the Florida "gun".

              There's also Knight's Armory but California and Connecticut would eat at the chance to take the AR as their state gun.

              Oh and another one:

      Guns are consumer products, and I think the idea of any "state [consumer product]" is kind of cringe and dystopian, but it's also based just in the sense of embracing the love for guns. And if there's anything I can appreciate it's a love for guns

    Neat. I wonder what the state firearm for Nevada should be, assuming a nuclear bomb is technically disqualified.

      We have 50 state legislatures and they all waste an incredible amount of time passing pointless laws establishing their "official state [noun]". Picrel is Oklahoma's official state soil: Port Silt Loam.

    Illinois doesn't have a state firearm, if it did it should be the M2A1 Howitzer, but it does still posses the prosthetic limbs of a foreign military leader taken in battle, which is pretty cool in its own right.

    My state needs to adopt the Sharps rifle or something similar since that was the primary arm of buffalo hunters back when.

    Been thinking about what my state (Louisiana) be.
    Maybe FN model 1910
    It shot our governor and future presidential candidate- Huey P. Long.
    Of course he was assassinated by someone in the small hat tribe.
    Only thing is that’s not really something to celebrate.

      Mein neger. I was also thinking about a potential state gun. I narrowed it down to two choices:
      1) LeMat Revolver (because French, and its use by the Confederacy was championed by LA-native Gen. PGT Beauregard)
      2) Essenial Arms J-15 (because it was actually made here in LA; for those who don't know, it was a pre-ban AR with a unique grey cast receiver)

        Oh noooo anon, the confederacy is baaaad
        God I hate those “people” so fricking much.
        I wouldnt mind either of your choices. Also I might just be buying an essential arms now. Seems like the owner retired and the molds or whatever were sold.

        They were made in California, and have a heavy presence in Film (Hollywood). They're also cool looking on the surface but actually a massive piece of shit, which is a great metaphor for lots of places in California.

    South Dakota is split down the middle by a river. East side is known as shotgun land and west is rifle.
    This is due to east having wider open plains for pheasant hunting while west has more wooded and hill regions for deer hunting.
