I own a .25 Beretta (like the above photo) as well as a Beretta Cougar 8000 (like the below photo).
I carry the 25. Beretta when I want something light in my pocket and I carry the Beretta Cougar in a holster when I want a more powerful gun on me. I'm fond of the two handguns.
So I was interested in a piece by Jared Paul Stern at maxim.com on the history of the world-famous Beretta gun company.
You can read the rest of the piece via the below link:
