John Moses Browning was born in Ogden (Utah) in the family gunsmith Jonathan Browning, who settled there after the Mormon exodus in 1847. In 14 years, John Browning designed its first single-shot rifle for brother Matt. In 1879, John's father died, and the brothers opened their own production of Browning Gun Factory. In the same year, John Browning received his first patent for a single-shot rifle.
