Default anything more american?

Is there anything more American than a 1911? Post your thoughts and ideas here. I think a pretty girl in daisy dukes with apple pie and a 1911 sound like a pretty good afternoon.

Colt Peacemakers and a Henry 30-30. Very American.

Are you trying for ideas on a new tattoo? Because that sounds like it would be awesome!

Are we asking about Chinese, Philipine, Turkish, Argentine, Norwegian, Canadian, or Brazilian 1911's? Oh, or the ones still made in America?

I guess it's got international appeal as well. So, as an American Icon that has gone global, I guess I can see it. Kind of like a Coke can with Arabic on it.

I think a Kentucky or Pennsylvania long rifle Or Hawken is pretty American. The Sharps or as someone else mentioned, the Peacemaker or '94 Winchester, as leverguns really never took off anywhere else.

A Winchester Model 1873/1886 Rifles are as American as you can get.
