At the risk of sounding churlish, one wonders why Beretta forgot to invite a representative of the world’s most popular firearm blog to the launch of their new[ish] DT11 shotgun. [Click here for the press release.] Perhaps it’s because we couldn’t represent Beretta as well as FITASC champion, Zone 4 Sporting Clays Champion, nine-time member of Team USA and Chevy Sportsman’s Team Challenge Champion, Will Fennel. [Note: the company rep is on the right.] It’s a shame as “The DT11 marks a corporate inflection point for Beretta USA. The DT11 arrives at a time of new leadership and marketing initiatives that take the company further down the lifestyle path as most evident by the wildly popular Beretta shooting apparel and accessories.” Truth be told we couldn’t shoot like Fennel or write like that. So fair’s fair. Still, our newly elevated Gun Test editor Nick Leghorn looks forward to Beretta’s call. Sometime. Soon. Por favore.
