Baretta M9: The Gun Navy Seals Love to Hate

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In January 1985, the U.S. Army made a fateful decision that would send shockwaves through the firearms industry: the service chose a foreign company to replace its arsenal of Colt pistols. The controversial choice of the Beretta 92FS as the standard handgun for the U.S. armed forces marked the end of an era, shifting away from larger calibers and towards higher capacity magazines and modern designs. The Italian handgun also established a beachhead for European firearms and makers on the U.S. market, helping make Europe’s gun makers the household names they are today. http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/baretta-m9-the-gun-navy-seals-love-hate-23814
