Manufacturer of the Week—Beretta, Fabbrica D’ Armi Pietro Beretta S.p.A., Beretta USA

The Beretta factory grew from an area that has seen weapons designs since the Roman era. Julius Caesar controlled the area before crossing the Rubicon. The area has witnessed Hannibal’s elephants, the Huns, untold barbarians, and over time standing armies from Napoleon to even the United States Army.

Firearm of the Week, the US Caliber .30 M1 /M1A1/M1A3/ M2/M2A2/M3 Carbine

And so ends our story of the little rifle that could. It almost never made it to the range must less the war, laughed and scoffed at it still came to game and was loved and revered by those who carried it. For several years, I trusted my life to one. Today I would choose something different but back then I never had a doubt in the little brother, the M1 Carbine.
