Official State Firearms!

  • Joey Upper


Did you know that eight of the fifty states of which the U.S. is comprised have official state firearms?

In honesty, I was shocked when I heard it. It just didn’t seem like something a state would place a particular emphasis on. Plus, add to that the fact that many firearm manufacturers that a given state might be excluding could theoretically be bad for business, and the fact that eight states had made their pick came as a shock.

However, why wouldn’t states have an official firearm? We’ve got state birds, state flowers – and firearms are such a vital part of American culture!

At the link above, the eight official state firearms are listed. Take a listen!
