Beretta is the oldest gun company in the world dating back to 1526. With much experience in manufacturing handguns, shotguns, and carbines, Berreta firearms have been adopted worldwide by military and police forces. The most notable adoption of Berreta firearms is the adoption of the 92FS for the U.S. Military in 1985. (and French airforce.) One of the most tested firearms in the world, the 92FS designated M9 by the U.S. Military has a life of over 35,000 rounds. The reliability of this handgun is unsurpassed. The Berreta PM12S and 70/90 AR were adopted by the Italian Military for a while.

An Italian firearms manufacturer that loves to advertise the fact that they've been in business since Renaissance times. The quality of their products is somewhat hit-or-miss. They have made some excellent rifles, like the M1 Garand-derivative BM59. They make pretty good, though overpriced shotguns. Their pistols just suck.

Their trademark piece, the 9mm Model 92, is a study in bad design. It was adopted by the US Military as the M9 in 1985 to replace the superior M1911 .45 as the standard-issue sidearm, despite the fact that it failed the tests at Aberdeen Proving Grounds and caused serious injury to one of the testers. The design is highly susceptible to dirt, and the open-top slide means it will always get packed with dirt no matter how much you baby it. Ask anybody who carried one in Iraq, the slightest bit of dirt will make the M9 jam to hell and gone. The magazines don't feed well and wear out quickly. The trigger pull is too heavy, which throws off your aim. On top of that, they are made of crappy steel. Beretta 92s will get cracks in the slide after 2,000-4,000 rounds and need to be completely rebuilt. By comparison, Glocks can last 40,000-50,000 rounds, SIGs last 80,000-100,000 rounds, and 1911s are known to go for a million rounds or more with their original parts.
"My M4 ran dry just as that hajji came around the corner with an AK. Didn't have time for a mag change, so I switched to my M9. Fucker jammed on me, and I just cleaned it that morning. Thank God that hajji couldn't shoot for shit, 'cause I had to bum rush him and stick his ass with my knife! Fuckin' beretta sucks, man!"

An Italian firearm company which is close to five hundred years old. This company makes the best weapons the world has ever seen. Most of these other definitions brag about the fact that U.S.A. uses them because the people that write these definition are brain-dead retards that have something messed up in their head that makes them think if the U.S. uses the companies weapons, then they are good, well how about this bitch, THIS IS AN ITALIAN GUN USED BY THE ITALIAN ARMY, that says a shit load more.
The best pieces that the Beretta company owns are never exported and stay right at home, in Italia!
