Beretta: Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Bang, Bang.

Established in 1526 Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta (part of Beretta Holding group) is one of the world's oldest corporations. The company has remained with the Beretta family for 15 generations.

Its firearms (includes but not restricted to side-by-side shotguns, over/under shotguns, hunting and assault rifles, submachine guns, semi-automatics, single and double action revolvers) are used all over the world by civilians, police and armies; the most recent deal concluded with Canada Borders Services Agency.

A major success for the Italian company was the adoption of the 92 series by United States military, US Navy and State Police organizations while France’s Gendarmerie Nationale and the French Air Force have also selected the 92 series for its operations.

Other signings include 92FS pistols for the Spanish Guardia Civil and 92 series for the Turkish Police

Beretta's success in national defence and law enforcement have been equalled in other realms of society including competitive shooting. Beretta won its first Olympic Gold medal in clay pigeon shooting in Melbourne, in 1956 and have consistently won medals in several Olympics ever since. Their competition shotguns have won more Olympic Games, World Championships and various other international competitions than any other manufacturer.

Asi fht his wasn't enough, Beretta is not limited to firearms manufacturing. The company is engaged in bringing a sense of style and lifestyle through its clothing, travel accessories and fine wines which all cater to modern hunters.

Beretta Holdings also owns three other gun manufacturers. They comprise of Franchi, Benelli (also known for its motorcycle heritage) and Stoeger Industries.

There are two other companies outside the Beretta family. These are: Fratelli Tanfoglio (its popular weapons are especially used for sports competitions and private use), Perazzi (precision shotguns. Gorgeous site), Armi Jager and Finmeccanica which focuses on aerospace and defense.
