    As I was reading the forums, dougwg's avatar reminded me of this picture. I am not sure why I didn't think of it before, but it gave me a chuckle!

    The All-American handgun!

    ...made in Italy. :P

    Sorry Mike.

    The factory is in Accokeek, MD, at One, Beretta Drive.

    It's the only place I've ever been that makes you go through a metal detector when you LEAVE, but not when you enter.... :shock:

    (I fixed machinery for about a month out there two years ago)
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Ha ha. When I was in college we visited the Federal Reserve Bank in Philadelphia, where theyshred old bills. The employees there had to wear jumpsuits with the pockets sewn shut, and they were all bonded. They got to put on their street clothes at the end of their shift.

    And they are also used byour armed forces today. But the 92 was designed in Italy.

    I think Mike is referring to the concept of "a handgun" as American, not the particular model.
