Connecting shooters with the best firearms and accessories available globally
After all, we are shooters too!
It all began with a passion for shooting
Our founder and Managing Director, Luca Scribani Rossi, is an accomplished skeet champion with an Olympic Bronze Medal from the Los Angeles ’84 Olympics, as well as amassing many other World Championship, World Cup, and Grand Prix medals. On top of this, he has also led the Italian Shooting Team and the Australian Shooting team to Olympic victory in his role as Coach and Technical Director.
During the later stages of his coaching career in Australia, one thing was becoming particularly apparent to Luca: shooters could not get easy access to Beretta’s full range of products and services. Couple this with Luca’s love for shooting, a deep respect for the Beretta brand, and a long-standing relationship with the Beretta family, a perfect and organic opportunity presented itself.
And with that, Beretta Australia was founded in 2000.
Today, our team is united by that passion
We love shooting
Our team of nearly 50 is made up of passionate hunters and shooters who are also experts in their chosen field.
We love the range of firearms, optics, accessories and apparel that we distribute
Our range is defined by one simple rule – best in class. And we proudly distribute this range of firearms, optics, accessories and apparel from leading international brands to our carefully selected Australian dealer network. Representing such great products that we love and use ourselves, makes it easy as we know you will like them too.
You will also find products exclusive to the Australian market as we work with our suppliers to tailor products to suit the unique requirements of Australian shooters. Check out Tikka ammunition or the Franchi Phoenix for example.
We also distribute to 14 other countries
Beretta Australia’s service extends past Australia’s vast 7,692,024km2 land mass with 14 countries in the Oceanic and Asia Pacific Regions which are also covered with the assistance of locally positioned sub distributors.
- New Zealand (Australia's Subsidiary)
- China (including Taiwan)
- Hong Kong
- Pacific Islands and French Polynesia
- Sri Lanka
- South Korea
We support the shooting community
Supporting the sport of shooting at a local level
We love to get behind events and clubs. Beretta Australia can often be found at various shoots across the country – either attending and offering Forever Servicing with a range of products on display, or supporting the event in some other way. Some of us will even be competing!
We also get behind the pioneering, award-winning Australian hunting show – Beyond the Divide. The show’s host, Rob Fickling, takes us on a variety of hunts that not only capture the spirit of hunters and hunting in this country, in and around the Great Dividing Range, but also portrays what it takes to be an Australian, hunting and surviving challenging environments overseas. You can watch Beyond the Divide on Foxtel’s Aurora Chanel, or free-to-air channel 44, or download the channel 31 app and watch it whenever you like!
Getting shooters to the podium
Beretta of course do sponsor select individuals in their quest for success on the international stage. These shooters are the best and brightest competition shooters in Australia, and they shoot exclusively with Beretta firearms. See our list of sponsored shooters.
We believe that upholding the rights of shooters is vital to maintaining Australia’s heritage, economic well-being, and our community spirit as well as protecting an individual’s livelihood, health and happiness.
