In yesterday’s post on the Army’s decision to buy 100k Beretta M9 pistols, the Italian-owned company’s Facebook photo was as patriotic as Gisele Bundchen in an American flag bikini. “The workers at our Maryland plant and the crew spread all over the USA are proud to be part of team [Italian to English translation?] that will deliver the official sidearm of the US Armed Forces for another five years.” In case you missed the point, the pic features Old Glory and the words “Proudly Made in the USA.” Along the same lines, gunsamerica.com headlined a less-than-critical review “The FNS-9 from FNH-USA – Made in USA.” I would have gone with Big Bucks to Belgium. Anyway, is this foreigners’ flag waving a transparent patriotic ploy or the truth about American guns? What does made in America mean to you, firearms-wise?
