There's an Arizona Centennial Gun, Obviously

As part of Arizona's celebration of its hundredth birthday in 2012, there's a wide array of merchandise to be purchased, most of which will likely end up in the back of a closet somewhere once the purchaser realizes they bought a sweatshirt for a state's centennial and that wearing such an item would just be weird.

However, it probably should surprise absolutely no one that among the Arizona Centennial infant bodysuits, coffee mugs, lapel pins, and limited edition cans of Kronik Energy Drink (wait, what?), Arizona will also be celebrating 100 years with a very expensive gun:

Limited Edition Firearm. The detailed images intricately engraved and finished on this piece with 24-karat gold, antique gold, and shiny nickel on a black background, make this a truly spectacular collector’s firearm. The Model 92 lever action rifle was chosen as the ‘canvas’ because of its easily recognizable style as well as a layout that allows the room required to include the appropriate images.

The imagery engraved on the firearm includes the Grand Canyon, the Roosevelt Dam, (completed in 1911 and originally known as “Salt River Dam #1”), the Arizona State Capitol Museum — and more.

Each numbered rifle includes a certificate of authenticity and custom oak display case. $2,995.

Just lay off the limited edition Kronik Energy Drink while handling your Limited Edition Firearm, I suppose.
