Finally picked it up Saturday morning! 150 rounds of WWB 115's, and 30 rounds of Super X 147's downrange without a hitch. The most interesting part about this whole affair is shooting exclusively with my weak hand, because the controls are nigh unreachable for a lefty. My groups have suffered accordingly.:mad: Well, here are a few snapshots.

Congrats! I'm sure those groups will tighten up as you get more acquainted w/ her ;)
I've had 92fs' in my collection since '92 & they're a couple of my faves :cool:

I hope that is the case! I suppose I'll have to stock up on more Winchester white box, and work my butt off at getting proficient with my right/weak hand.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how to date one of these? It has an interesting serial number.

Hope this will help you out

Beretta 92S (1976) first modification of the basic model 92, with non-ambidextrous slide-mounted safety/decocker and magazine release button set low in the left grip panel. It was replaced in production by the Model 92SB.
Beretta 92SB (1981) further evolution of model 92S, initially designated Model 92S-1, later designated 92SB with the introduction of the firing pin block. The manual safety is ambidextrous, the magazine release relocated to the base of the trigger-guard. Discontinued since 1991.
Beretta 92SB-C (1981) Compact version of the model 92SB. Overall length was 197 mm, barrel length 103 mm, magazine capacity 13 rounds (also accepted standard 15-round magazines).
Beretta 92SB-C type M (1983) slimmer version of the model 92SB-C, with a single-stack magazine which held only 8 rounds.
Beretta 92F (1984) initially designated 92SB-F, later renamed 92F. Evolved from the Model 92SB during American XM9 trials, with a slightly reshaped grip and trigger-guard, also a different finish. The barrel bore and chamber are chrome-plated.
Beretta 92G (1989)- the so called "Gendarmerie" version, created at the request of the Gendarmerie Nationale de France. Also manufactured under licence in France by GIAT Industries as the PA MAS G1. The pistol is the same as the model 92F except for the operations of the lever, which lost its safety lock function and is used only to safely decock the hammer.

So It's been narrowed down to 76-81. Interesting.

Well, it's going to get expensive trying to learn to shoot right handed. It just doesn't feel natural at all. I'm definately going to pick up a few more Winchester bulk packs today.
