I couldn’t help but notice how, well, Lands End-ish the Beretta catalog I just got is. I purchased my first Italian beauty this year – I’m talking about my Nano, now – so I’ve never had the honor of receiving the Beretta catalog before. Never mind the LL Bean-y cover or the non-existent trigger discipline as Mr. SuperTactiModel rounds a corner. He’s stylin’ in his waterproof Beretta jacket with the low-profile hook-and-loop cap flag, clearly patriotic, but on the down low. What really sent me over the edge, though, was the full selection of Beretta luggage and – wait for it – Beretta wines . . .
Wait! How could I forget the Brooks Brothers Beretta jacket? And I really like the minimalist touch of the black and white insert in my full color catalog that featured, of all things, firearms accessories.
With all of this ridiculous (and ridiculously priced) shooting gear for the gullible-yet-affluent non-shooter, you’d think that Beretta would be raking in enough Euros to produce an 8-round extended mag for the Nano that doesn’t misfeed 75% of the time. Oh well. At least it makes a great paperweight for their line of Beretta stationery.
