The Italian government turns over about twice a year so there'll be no mention of it by this summer I suspect. Yeah it's silly but it's the by product of a marketing department, so it can't be helped. But if they want sacrificial animals, we could send them some marketing folks and never feel a loss.

Curious whether Beretta would have gotten in trouble for the same thing.

I saw that statute during a high school tour. We couldn't get the girls away from it.

Oh, should ArmaLite have used Mussolini instead?
I love the Italians and their culture, but their government's noise is like the French complaining about calling our fine Kentucky whiskey Bourbon. Nothing better to do with their time?

Didn't the Italian's hear the news? We won the war. We own 'em and their nekkid statues! LOL

Much ado about nothing.
That statute has been photo-shopped with hundreds of items. The fact that its a big bad .50 scares them.
I thought it was kind of cute.

There's no way I would fire a .50 BMG nekkid. No way.

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

Do they understand that this was the same guy often credited with the invention of the tank, multi-barreled cannon, and an 86 foot crossbow??
