BERETTA: Maryland disrespects us and gun owners, so we expand in Tennessee
http://www.washingtontimes.com/ ^ | 2/4/14 | Ugo Gussalli Beretta

Posted on 02/05/2014 8:00:24 PM PST by correctthought

My family has operated our business from the same small town in northern Italy for 500 years. This means that when we make a commitment to a local community, our hope is to do so for decades, if not centuries, to come.

We apply this same philosophy to all of our factories and locations throughout the world. Such a commitment is not a one-way street, though.

I’m sure the gay wedding industry will make up the loss in wages and taxes.

Guns are BIG business. The loss in jobs in Blue states is adding up fast, and many other related businesses which don’t make headlines are moving too, from what I hear. We are talking tens of thousands over the next 5 years.

A well put statement. I’d love to own some Berettas and now I have an additional reason to want to.

We chose Tennessee for our new facility expansion. Our plans for that location are extensive and long-lasting.

Thanks but no thanks, Maryland. Soon, you'll have driven most of the jobs out of that state and you will be left with Obama's finest. I hope you're equipped to deal with that. [CT, I have several and they all perform well]

Every once in a while, you have a guy that buys one and then for one reason or another, pawns it. I check pawnshops regularly.

I found a Model 87 22LR that is just like their Model 84/85 .380s (have both). It was like new in the box with all the stuff it originally came with and almost never shot. It is simply just a beautiful gun - feels great, shoots great, flawless. I got it for $150 under what they sold for when they stopped making them.

There was a nice article about Beretta in a recent issue of Garden and Gun magazine. Worthwhile read.

Be aware fellow Freepers that our Governor Martin “O’Moron” O’Malley has announced his intention to run for President in 2016. A person who is a stranger to truth in my opinion

LOL I’m an eclectic person. Probably why I’m sorta the opposite of a chick magnet. They’re north pole, and I’m north pole too.

Tennessee is also a Right to Work state, which makes it a double win.

good deal indeed... all i have to look in are gun shops, not a real pawn shop for 80-100 miles from here

that little .380 was a real pocket rocket before small frame 9mm came out

These regulations also demean our law-abiding customers, who must now be fingerprinted like criminals before they can be allowed to purchase one of our products.

That is old news in mAssachusetts. All transfers are reported to the "Criminal Systems History Board" (read "registration") and FID/LTC records are kept by same. Gun owners have been treated like criminals for over a decade and a half.

The only thing mAss did right is make those records private; news papers whores can't publicize the lists. 0bama's mini-me, the scumbag governor is trying to reverse that.

I love my SNARK !! It is awesome

But the snark was a boojum...

 "JUST the place for a Snark!" the Bellman cried,
    As he landed his crew with care;
  Supporting each man on the top of the tide
    By a finger entwined in his hair.

 "Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:
    That alone should encourage the crew.
  Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:
    What I tell you three times is true."

 From:  "The Hunting of the Snark" by Lewis Carroll

I’m sure Maryland will have plenty of jobs at the social services office. Unfortunately they lack the understanding of what funds it.

I missed your post during the first pass.

Would you feel a 20yr career at Beretta is in the offing if your based in Maryland?
