Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our readers and especially our 43,000+ Forum Members. This marks our 14th Christmas “in business”, and the site is stronger than ever thanks to our contributing Gold and Silver Forum members and industry sponsors. AccurateShooter.com is now accessed by over 500,000 visitors every month, who enjoy our Feature Articles, Daily Bulletin, Shooters’ Forum, and our Facebook Page. We added 5000 new Forum members this past year! Part of the reason for that success is the hard work of our dedicated staff and volunteer helpers.

Unsung Heroes Deserve Recognition
I want to acknowledge those guys who have really helped out the site. Number one is our Systems Admin, Jay Christopherson. Along with being a darn fine shooter, Jay is a computer guru who keeps the servers running smoothly. We acknowledge Boyd Allen and EdLongRange who supply story leads for the Daily Bulletin, as well as F-Class John, who prepares Deals of the Week. We also thank Jeff Williams, our “Answerman” who fields questions from our readers. We have a great place to test rifles thanks to our valued friend (and designated trigger-puller) Joe Friedrich. Special thanks go to: Ed Mobley and Steve Lawrence of 65Guys.com; Bill, Editor of Rifleshooter.com; Gavin Gear; and Erik Cortina. These folks have worked on important product tests, contributing stories and videos. I also want to recognize our regular contributors, including Craig Arnzen, Vince Bottomley, James Mock, John Whidden, and Glen Zediker. All these men (and many others) have all contributed much time and effort.

We also want to thank our major sponsors, without whose support the site could not provide the full AccurateShooter.com experience, with an active Forum, an archive of in-depth articles, and fresh content 365 days a year in our Daily Bulletin. We’re grateful to all our sponsors and advertisers. In particular, we want to acknowledge the major online retailers who have been strong supporters of this site for many years: Bruno Shooters Supply, Bullet Central, Graf & Sons, Grizzly Industrial, EuroOptic, Midsouth Shooters Supply, Powder Valley Inc., and Precision Reloading. Thanks also to major advertisers Capstone, Nosler, Precision HC Gear, Stocky’s Stocks, Whidden Gunworks, and Zeiss Optics.

The Art of Gun-Making — Remarkable Video from Beretta

Beretta shotgun technology robot video Human

Here’s a Christmas present to our readers from Beretta — an amazing video about gun-making. This movie, “Human Technology”, is a visual feast, and one of the best videos we’ve ever featured. It’s that good. You’ll see an amazing blend of ultra-modern manufacturing technology along with old-world artisanship — “a mesmerizing meld of the high-tech and the traditional”. (Daniel Xu, Outdoor Hub.)

“Human Technology is a singular and symbolic movie, its cast entirely made up of Beretta workmen, thus illustrating the perfect synthesis between craftsmanship and technology,” Beretta writes. This artistic movie by Ancarani Studio illustrates all the aspects of the manufacturing of a high-end Beretta shotgun. This video is a study in contrast. The movements of robotic assembly machines are juxtaposed with the centuries-old craftsmanship of stock carvers. Beautifully filmed and edited, this video should amaze and entertain anyone who loves fine firearms. (Full-screen HD Recommended.)
