Cumberland Tailwater 8/23/15

      My Dad and I were able to get down to the Cumberland River tailwater this past weekend for a day and had a good time. We stayed with a customer, Bob, who had a great cabin on rainbow run with a nice boat ramp and he joined us in the boat for the day.  It was great to have him with us since he has been fishing down there for around 30 years!

007’s very first carry gun was a Beretta

Image result for beretta 418Most folks know that the legendary fictional spy James Bond has long carried a Walther PPK, both on film and in print publications.  Not many people, though, realize that 007’s very first carry gun was a Beretta 418.  Author Ian Fleming depicted the super spy with the 418, chambered in .25 ACP, in the novel Casino Royale, Bond’s very first adventure. 

Join us at the shop for a Beretta Gun Show on Tuesday August 25th from noon-8pm.

In 1526 Mastro Bartolomeo Beretta (1490 – 1565/68) of Gardone received 296 ducats as payment for 185 arquebus barrels sold to the Arsenal of Venice.

Already in production in the early 1500s, Beretta products were chosen by the highly discriminating Republic of Venice because of their excellence. As the Beretta name became synonymous with uncompromising quality, design, materials, construction and performance, word spread beyond the Italian borders, establishing a tradition that has carried over, uninterrupted, through fifteen generations of Berettas.

The old Beretta logo, or rather the Beretta escutcheon with the “PB”, dates back to the early 1800’s.
