About the Handgun:
Listed as a discontinued model under the Beretta label, the marketing and distribution of the Cougar has been transferred to Stoeger Industries. The firearms are made in Turkey, using Beretta factory tooling. The full and compact size models are being produced. See the Beretta Cougar for more details.
About the Manufacturer:
Founded in 1924 and currently located in Accokeek, Maryland, Stoeger has imported a wide variety of firearms during the last seven decades. Most of these guns were good quality and came from known makers in europe. Many were marketed under the Stoeger brand. In the 1990s, the Stoeger company was purchased by Finnish rifle manufacturer Sako, and then in 2000, Sako was acquired by Beretta Holding S.p.A. At that time, Stoeger Industries was placed under the ownership of Benelli USA, also a subsidiary of Beretta, where it remains today as a member of the Benelli USA family of companies.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
