Italy is famous within the firearms world for its long-standing history of firearms production. Beretta, in particular, is famous for being the oldest active manufacturer of firearms in the world with the company being established back in the 16th century, nearly 500 years ago. While Giorgio is nowhere near that old, he is very familiar with Italian firearms law and culture because that is where he was born and raised. Today Giorgio and I talk about some of his experience and knowledge surrounding the Italian firearms world as well as some of his thoughts on what the future of Italian firearms culture and law will look like in the years to come. Giorgio has been writing with TFB for about 3 years now with some of his earliest coverage being from the IDEX convention in 2019.

TFB B-Side Podcast: Gun Law and Gun Culture in Italy with Giorgio O
Today’s guest is one of our own TFB writers, Giorgio O. Although Giorgio currently resides within the UAE, he was born and raised in Italy where he was first bitten by the gun bug. Starting off with a simple sporting firearms license, Giorgio quickly fell in love with firearms and now enjoys writing for TFB, and attending military arms expos like IDEX where he often covers some of the latest military technology and small arms.
Giorgio is also very enthusiastic about the 3D printing scene as it applies to firearms. You can contact him at [email protected] and you’ll find him in the comments section of TFB as Giolli Joker.

If you’ve said that buying a silencer is too expensive, too long of a wait, or that the paperwork is too confusing, you’re not alone. Buying a silencer is a big deal, and we don’t take it lightly either! But it’s the easiest it’s ever been!
