    As many know - on various gun forums, I have posted pics of my "Wheel-O-Berettas"

    (see below)

    Anyway, someone from Beretta saw my ever growing "wheel" on another gun forum and contacted me. For being such a fan of the Beretta 92, he sent me a hat and some stickers. That's pretty cool, since it was a surprise. Very nice of the guy!!! They came in today :)

    That's very generous of them; spend thousands on some guns and get a hat and stickers!

    Lol just kidding, that's a pretty cool gesture from a big corp.

    Good for them, and that wheel of yours has nearly cost me a few hundred bucks, every time I see it!

    Love the "new" compact 92, and it makes me miss my old single stack Italian 92 that I owned in 1990!

    Glad they made contact with you, to show their appreciation for your enthusiasm!

    I guess it's good that some of us knew ya' before you became such a Celebrity. Otherwise you'd probably not even talk to us "lowly" folks. :rofl:
    Congrats on the score of the hat and stickers. I'm sure Beretta can use all the free advertising that they can get. :supergrin:

    You certainly deserved this recognition.
    You did a lot of good work for them :)

    And now for something completely unrelated...

    I just figured out your username. :faint:

    Every time I glanced at it in the past I thought it was just something in German. Lolz on me. :rofl:

    Resume thread.
