Leverguns, apple pie, and Ford pick-ups. (I may take some heat for that last one).

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.
I'm talking the new Remington 1911

That's pretty American since they are part of a huge conglomorate now, with the Freedom Group, or Cerberus. (Holds Remington, Marlin, DPMS, Bushmaster, now.)

Don't you mean taking THEIR country
Come to think on it- Whats more American than a NATIVE American?

And again- The original Henry was never chambered in 30-30---
