Battleship Texas Browning 1911 380 Caliber

Come on Texas. It was the cry associated with the Battleship Texas. Soldiers would see her drawing near and yell, “Come on Texas.” They knew that her approach meant great power. Come on Texas meant help had arrived. Her presence was a game-changer.

Fast forward to today and it remains our favorite battle cry. So, once more we shout, Come on Texas. Come on to the shipyard where much-needed restoration will occur. Come on Texas to a new home where more people can enjoy her great history. Come on Texas to a bright and shining future.

To commemorate that future, we have partnered with Baron Engraving and Browning to produce this 1911 380 Caliber masterpiece. Images of Texas from 1914 to 1948 are engraved and proudly mark the famous cry of Come on Texas.

You can help with your purchase of one or more. The price is $1,250. You will also receive a charitable tax deduction of $400.

Purchases can be made by contacting the Battleship Texas Foundation at 713-827-9620 and info@battleshiptexas.org

Production is expected to take 120 days.
