    Beretta donated $1 million to the NRA recently. Let's reward them by buying some of their stuff. I bought some Beretta clothing today, and am trying to figure out if I can justify "needing" one of their guns.

    If they made a 92FS with a polymer frame I would be all over it.

    I can't afford a $600 handgun right now, but I'm going to make a strong effort to look for a t-shirt I like.

    I would if I liked their guns more. I'll see about buying a hat or something to show my appreciation. A similar story with Ronnie Barrett and Hawaii, explaining why my forehead is currently advertising his company for free.

    Way to go Beretta! If that Cooper fellow is now looking for a job, let him know Beretta probably isn't an option. :)

    Gettin' Zumbo'd hurts, don'it?!

    Buying apparel from a chain or mom and pop store helps Beretta the same right? Is it better to order from Beretta's official website or does that just cost more? Regardless, I'd sport a t-shirt.

    I'd like to buy an extractor for my NEOS, but they always seem to be out of stock.

    Yes it would, since it ultimately comes from the same source. They're either receiving direct money, or money from licensing their name. Either way, its definitely a show of support.

    They do make a Beretta 92 with a polymer frame, it's called the 90-Two.
    Put me down for one! and a Carbine too!

    Try the PX4-Storm pistol.
    It's a really fun little gun to shoot, and you can adjust the backstrap so it will fit larger or smaller hands easily.
    I absolutely love mine.

    Thanks for the heads up on this.

    I might suggest that in addition to purchasing an item from Beretta it would be prudent to let them know why you are purchasing said item. Otherwise the company has no way to separate your actions from somebody who simply purchased something as a matter of routine. For the act of purchasing a Beretta product to be really effective the company needs to understand the connection between your decision to purchase and their positive action of the NRA donation.

    There may be a comments section on the Beretta order form, or an even better method would be to take a couple minutes and send them a thank you email via a contact address on their website.

    I'm pretty good at letting a supplier know when I'm unhappy with their product or their action, but I'm not so disciplined when it comes to letting them know when I'm happy with their product/action.

    "$1 million is a drop in the bucket to Beretta."

    As it would be to a number of gun makers, thanks Beretta.

    Do you know another gun manufacturer who donates more than a 'drop in the bucket'? Does $1m not greatly help the NRA?

    No matter the percentage of their total profit, I feel they greatly helped the RKBA movement, so I will do my best to reward them. Heck, I don't know of any gun shops around that make a point to donate to RKBA organizations at all.


    Thanks Beretta!

    I already am a supporter of theirs, but may have to get a hat or shirt to help the cause.

    the 92 has a metal frame, the ninety-two has a polymer frame. They're two different pistols.
