Happy John Moses Browning Day!

The inventor of the 1911 and .45 ACP cartridge was born on this day in 1855.

Other notable Browning inventions are the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle), the Browning Hi Power pistol, and the M2 .50 BMG which is still in use by US Armed Forces to this day.

Defensive Gun Use Survey.

I am looking to collect some data regarding Defensive Gun Use for an article I want to write.  I have a series of questions that I would like to ask as many people who have had a DGU as possible.  The focus is going to be the aftermath of the DGU and to keep things relevant I'm looking for incidents that have occurred in the last ten years.

If you would be interested in taking part in the survey please email me at and I will send the questions. I want to keep the respondents anonymous so I'm not looking for any identifying information except which state the incident took place in.

Thank you for any help.
