Nestled in the mountain village of Gardone Val Trompia, a two-hour drive due west of Vicenza, the Pietro Beretta Arms Factory continues to produce weapons for every variety of person who may want or need one. Beretta has been owned by the same family for almost five hundred years and has sold its firearms worldwide for a variety of civilian, law enforcement and military purposes.
What surprises and heartens lovers of fine quality firearms is the care shown in each step along the way as a highly trained human verifies each step of the processes and either corrects or rejects the item in question immediately.
he hour to 1 1/2-hour long tour certainly does not touch upon each weapon nor each process but whets the appetite enough to make the trip worthwhile.
