A Beretta Law Enforcement Day

Posted by matteo recanatini on Oct 7, 2011 10:09:00 AM

On September 27, Beretta sponsored a demonstration day at Fresno Police Department, Fresno, CA. The event saw almost 100 officers from a dozen different agencies step up to the line to test fire the entire line of Beretta Law Enforcement products, including the line of Px4 pistols, the Benelli M4, the Cx4 carbine, Sako and Tikka products.

The FPD range is a state-of-the-art facility that proved to be an excellent venue for the event, with a large handgun, carbine, and shotgun area, and a long distance shooting range for the long rifles.
The shooting range was broken up into three functional areas with a representation of the full-size Px4 family, along with compact and subcompact models, the 96A1, the special duty .45ACP for demonstration/use, and the Cx4 carbines.
The shotgun venue featured the M4, M2, and the Nova pump shotguns. The last venue, the long rifle, featured Tikka T3 and Sako TRG rifles for use in the long range.
The event was sponsored by Beretta, while our host, Fresno PD, provided  breakfast snacks, drinks and lunch.
The event was a great success, with much attention going to the Cx4 carbine. Some of the attendees admitted to not knowing about the depth of the Beretta line as a total solution package for Law Enforcement agencies.

The TRG 22 and the Tikka T3 received very good feedback and the officers were impressed with the weight of the weapon compared to what they normally carry for a sniper rifle.

We look forward to our upcoming Law Enforcement events!To view the complete album of images from this event, visit our Facebook page.
