    While working at the bench on a self-loading pistol design for Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN) in
    Liège Belgium, John Moses Browning died of heart failure while in his son Val's office at the FN factory.
    It was the last day on earth for this ingenious person who invented more firearms than any other gun maker in the history of the world.

    You were a great American Mr Browning. I am proud to own the fine firearms I do that bear your name and your genius.

    I bought a Remington model 24 at auction and kind of wondered why I spent money on it when I favor Winchesters. I understood after I found out JMB invented it.
