CHARLESTON - The state senate also unveiled a historic rifle on Friday and endorsed it as West Virginia's official state gun.  The 1819 Hall rifle was the first in the world to be made completely with interchangeable parts, and it was manufactured here in the Mountain State.  The gun is fired once a year, and it will go on display along with the resolution to make it the official state firearm.
