Beretta USA Announces Decision to Move Its Entire Maryland Manufacturing Capabilities to Tennessee – General – News

Beretta U.S.A. Corp., located in Accokeek, Maryland, announced today that it has decided to move its manufacturing capabilities from its existing location to a new production facility that it is building in Gallatin, Tennessee.  The Gallatin facility is scheduled to be opened in mid-2015.  Beretta U.S.A. had previously planned to use the new Gallatin, Tennessee facility for new machinery and production of new products only.

I wonder if this helped:

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. They’ll be a lot closer to me than to Glenn – just up the road in Gallatin, northeast of Nashville. It’s long been a manufacturing center, with the printing company RR Donnelly being the anchor for a long time. For many years, most of the east US TV Guide magazines were printed there. Playboy was for a long time too.

    With the dropoff in print demand, I’m sure those Beretta jobs will be highly sought after. I might have to change my next purchase to a Beretta to show support for them.

  2. The entirely-predictable, wholly-expected “payback/pushback” to Beretta begins:

    This mostly-moronic “report” – from a clearly-ignorant (and how predictable is that?), gen-u-wine Yahoo (apparently, some sort of alleged “finance whiz”) brainless keypuncher – mischaracterizes the latest entry by Beretta in the “scary, mostly-black, inherently-eeevill” rifle competition field, its newly-introduced ARX100, as “…unusually powerful.”, “…engineered with one purpose in mind: to be today’s best tactical semiauto rifle.” (Kill! KILLL!! KILLLL!!!), and “…available at hundreds of locations…” (Evil! EEVILL!! EEEVILLL!!!

    Um…the caliber of this “New Scourge Of The Earth”? –

    Your choice (apparently) of – either .22 LR (Rimfire), or 5.56 MM (.223 NATO).

    Additional “rhetoric” available at the link:

    In common usage, “tactical shooter” is one of the descriptions of video game features.*

    Ahhh-h-h, yesss! – the Awesomeness of Eeevilll Video Games –

    The Comments stream over there is – nearly hilarious, and unrelentingly negative to the Yahoo “writer” of that crap (and already running to over 1,300 comments)

    (*Can someone – anyone – tell me, please, just what [if anything] that remark even actually means? I’m not real knowledgeable about video game features, I admit, but – is “tactical shooter” some kind of a “thing” in that context? And, if so, how does that apply [or NOT] to a real, live rifle under “review? Help a fella out here, m’kay?…)

    • I play first person shooters, and I’ve never heard the term.

      Now, FPS games have lots of weapons, some of them fictional, and it’s possible that the description is somewhere in Call of Duty, Gears of War, Battlefield, Call of Battlefield Honor and Duty War Gears, or whatever. But I think this indoctrinated J-school graduate just heard something with the words “tactical” and “shooter” in it, and munged it up.
