      I would buy a commemorative model if they made one and put Alaska on it...

        This is why we voted for a 90day session. I love guns. I love Alaska. I hate wasting time when there is important business to be done. Common' Charlie, if we are down to voting on official state guns it's time to close the session and quit wasting money.

          I think a pre 64 model 70 Alaskan 338 wm would be a better choice.

            That's a good point.

            Something like this might better be done by Petition. On the other hand, it might promote guns and gun owership, A GOOD THING, and he could be responding to his constituants.

            I'm NOT in favor of choosing a Win Pre 64 Mdl 70.

            Maybe, I'll email him to stop wasting time on this, but IF HE DOES, don't go with the Mdl 70.

              I think an ATG rifle would be the best choice as this was used widely after WWII.

                I don't think the Winchester Model 70 should be our state firearm either. They've always been a relatively expensive rifle, and not found all across the state. I don't even own a pre-64 Winchester Model 70 myself. Not only that, but the Winchester factory went out of business a year or two ago. Any current Winchesters are being made in Japan, aren't they?

                I think a more relevant choice for a state rifle, that's currently being produced in the USA, and widely used in Alaska would be the Ruger Mini-14.

                  What? A inaccurate gun with casting and tooling marks passing for metal finish and a fence post reject "wood" stock? I admit I am prejudiced as I own 3 pre-64 M70's but I also own a mini-14.

                    They are now made in Virginia by FN-USA and are as good now as the pre64s.

                    There are a couple others Id rather see . . . lake something made or modified in Alaska but what do I know, 100 Alaskans would pick 95 different rifles so close enough.

                      Maybe we should come of with an Alaska State Scope... to keep a closer eye on our politicians.

                          Alaska State Firearm Choice

                          I think the Springfield M1903 30-06 would be a great choice. It has a history here dating to WWII and the Scouts and Soldiers who defended the Aleutian Islands.

                            As much as I love the M70, Alaska, and the idea of a State gun... I gotta say that I (as a taxpayer) am not terribly in favor of paying to get that done.

                            Never mind that our Legislature goes in circles over pressing issues for our state to be preoccupied with something like this.

                              Oh come on now... you know you should not zoom in on anything in your scope that you don't intend to shoot....

                              Oops, I guess maybe you did know that.
