Last week I flew into Milan, Italy, and traveled east to Brescia to visit Beretta and a few other gunmakers.
People in the Brescia region have been building guns for 400+ years. Today, the area is home to 100+ companies who build 40% of the sporting and hunting firearms sold around the world.
In 2016, these companies shipped 395,000 guns to the U.S. alone.
Beretta is the biggest and most famous of these companies. This year they’re introducing a fine new OU called the SL3. I talk more about this gun–and about the other gunmakers I visited–in future posts.
