    Tikka t1X - Beretta NZ sales policy

    So I just went into my local "independant" gun store to see if I could pre-order a Tikka T1x. The owner lip dropped when I asked and he explained that Beretta NZ won't supply him.

    Well F*uck Beretta NZ and Beretta generally, they can take their Tikka's , Sako's and other assorted shit and shove em' where the sun don't shine. Thats because by only selling there stuff through H&F etc they can control the price,and guess what, we are the ones who get bent over and reamed.

    I have bought my last Beretta product (and Swaro who are doing the same thing) until this changes. Normally I'd think about grey imports which is perfectly possible but I feel it just rewards their predatory behavior.

    Not Cheers

    PS - I've told Beretta NZ the same thing.

    What dumb arse's, surely they would be better off selling their product via ALL retailers. Unreal

    Jesus fucking Christ there are a lot of naÔve people around

    Just because 'old mate' from Invercargill cant get Beretta to supply him doesn't mean that they supply exclusively through H&F.

    Apply some critical thought to the situation for once, see if your original post makes sense. Hopefully you are smart enough to realise what is painfully obvious to most others....Hopefully......

    And besides, the OP deserves to get stitched up, he wants to buy a piece of shit Tikka.

    Without a doubt, I'm an average at best shooter. Doesn't change the fact that Tikka's are shit

    Is there a reason Beretta won't supply this independent gun store ?
    They supply other independents.

    To all the Tikka fanboys.

    I have no doubt that all your tikka’s are very accurate and indeed ‘work’.

    Further, my opinion is just that, my opinion.

    You don’t have to justify why you love your tikkas to me.

    Although, deep down I suspect you all secretly agree with me, hence the militant responses justifying your choice each time I say they’re rubbish

    Back to my main point, only a retard would believe ‘old mate’ shop owner was telling the truth when he said Beretta only sold through H&F and then alledgedly call them to say they were shit for doing so. Especially when 5 seconds of searching online would prove ‘old mate independent shop owner’ a liar.

    Beretta NZ have few retailers selling their products,

    It is difficult to get an account with them if you are an independent

    H&F get cheaper rates than the independents because of their buying power

    This puts the independents behind the eight ball before they start
