    After a few minutes of thought, I came up with the Hawken Rifle for Oregon's official state firearm because it was popular with trappers back when Oregon became a state. That or Jim's rubberband gun idea, or maybe a squirtgun (as long as it is safety orange).

    Oregon became a state in 1859. Do we want to consider dates before that? If so the Hawken might be in consideration, but there was also heavy English and French influence. There probably wassn't any one "Oregon gun". True--the Winchester 73 was popular on the later wagon trains, but so was the Spencer and a BUNCH of civil war leftovers. Heck---probably the most prevalent long gun with the settlers was a shotgun of some sort.

    Maybe we need to go further back in time? How about the Lewis and Clark air rifle?
    I can't think of a single firearms inventor from Oregon. Anybody?

    How about the air rifle Lewis and Clark had? Even the liberals won't fight that cause Sacagewea was there.

    Something that ruins your entire trip to the range by shooting way left everytime you use it.

    Or a pointy finger, except it's not polite to point, let alone yell, "Bang. Bang. You're dead."

    A lot of people I know (myself included) have hunted the west side with a 30~30 for years and everyone owns a 10/22.
