Really? I can't immagine any gun being designated as a states official gun. Especially this state and under the administration of Fast Eddie Rendelli; the same guy who said that if he could - he would not permit PA residents to even own a baseball bat.

we would be the only state with an official gun, which I think is kinda cool

Secret,

Is this official? Where can we find this information?

As the only state still offering a special Flintlock Season, this designation simply confirms the uniqueness of flintlocks built across the southeastern part of Pennsylvania.

Of course, I feel the Roman nose look of a Berks County comb should represent this official State rifle.

BerksCoflinter,


That berks Roman nose profile didnt come along till much later in longrifle development.

But I know what you mean I also like the looks of that Berks-Reading Profile.

There were beautiful long rifles built through out most of the state during the Golden Age. Snyder, Union Huntingdon counties, Bedford, even up toward the NY border. Not just Lancaster, Berks and Lehigh.

I think it is great and was quoted on channel 43 10 pm news last week about it.

We should do it quick before the Kentuckians beat us. Bad enough they put their state to the common term for such guns. It isn't like they were a hot bed of gun building.


Maybe the designation would help us keep the modern rabble out of our FLINTLOCK season!

Never heard them called a PA machine gun before, but my Dad has said a few times that when I shoot at deer that he knows its not a bolt-action shooting. :)


I think making the long rifle the office PA State Riffle is a great ideal. It would help show off the history of our state. Plus any law that is not anit-gun is a good thing.
