Speaking of collectible Berettas, at the 1500 there was a fully transferable Beretta 38A for the low-low-buy-it-now sum of $14,000. I figure that’s only about half of what one of our cars cost, so it’s totally affordable; plus I’d then have a 9mm submachine gun for shooting…uh…squirrels or something.
In terms of collecting Berettas, any of their submachine guns constitute the Holy Grail of Berettas as far as I’m concerned. One of these days I’ll figure out a way to convince my wife that spending 14 thousand dollars on a gun is a totally worthwhile investment. “But honey, it will only appreciate with time!”
