Beretta 76

While I was at the LGS picking up the HK shotgun and the Hämmerli 212, I spotted this little vintage Beretta 76. In Switzerland the permit to buy guns allows up to 3 weapons provided they come from the same seller on the same day. There is no limitation on the number of permits though. That leads to some compulsive buying to amortise the permit by filling up the third line. This is one classic example at $ 390.-





















I also took it to the range but a buddy forgot that it was a 22 Long rifle day only and had brought a 9 mm, so I lent it to him. I just tried a couple of magazines on the gong at the end of the session.
