Sorry - but the "Wheel" consolidated down to "The Line-O-Berettas"

All things must change :D:D

I figured - what the hell... 5 of the same exact gun is enough. I don't need 7 or 9 of them anymore http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g320/mistershipwreck/Smiley/thicon_lol.gif~originalhttp://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g320/mistershipwreck/Smiley/thicon_lol.gif~original

I can still spare one for my son eventually... All these are USA made. My personal preference over the Italian ones.

Very cool, as long as the Beretta line goes no shorter:)

I sent my Beretta slide to Tool Tech to replace my night sights can't wait.

Do you notice any difference between any of them when you take them out?

Very cool. I have used them many times (some for Berettas I no longer have) - they do a great job.

3 of them are more accurate than any of the others I have had. Not to say my 2 others are off - but I can just tell a slight difference... 1 in particular. The one that I sent off to Tooltech (2nd one in the photo) was already VERY accurate. It's like it just stacks rounds. Right or left - it's always dead on. I sometimes stack the rounds up or down, but that's me. That one and the one that was my carry gun for 3 years are probably my favorite 2 out of any of the ones I have (or previously had that I sold)

So no more Wheel of Fortune-Beretta Style; I'm sure the remaining members (The Line of Nines?), will continue to serve you well for a long time to come.

Well this way, you have one on each hip, one under each arm and one small of back. Seems like a perfect setup. If you ever get shot, you don't want it to be for a lack of shooting back. (Shamelessly paraphrased from "Unforgiven.")

Sure, say that now. I suspect we'll see the wheel again.

No, I'd have to sell 2 or 3 to buy that. I shot my AUG again. I decided I STILL don't wanna buy a DI rile. I like piston rifles better (my AUG uses a piston). And, most of the piston ARs are within 8oz of my AUG. So, not worth worrying about. I got over the urge. I knew I would if I just held off long enough :neener:

I'm not selling anymore 92s... So, the AUG as my sole 5.56 rile is good enough. It's a fantastic weapon too. My S&W 15-22 will satisfy my Ar urge close enough... And, my PS90 is a very light weapon as well. I don't really need another rifle, I've decided...

Shipwreck,
So that all you own now? you got rid of your two compacts?

That is all the Berettas I own, yes. That's not my only handguns, though. I have a couple others that are not Berettas.

But, I did sell those compacts. Yes... Sold them a few months ago... Back then, I made a slight change in my collection... I sold two 92A1s, Two M9A1s and two 92 compacts.

I didn't like the way the railed models balanced. I honestly can tell the difference. They are more front heavy. And, I don't like the M9A1 checkering. Its too shallow to be effective IMHO. I like the plain serrations. I get a better grip with them.

I sold the compacts because I MUST have rubber grips on my guns. For whatever reason - the hogue grip panels for the 92 compacts are fatter than the ones for the fullsize 92. The don't taper towards the front of the grip like the fullsize ones do.

The compacts balance nicely, but I have small hands. The hogue grips for the compact make the grip too big for my hand. And, I do not like the factory grips. I tried to deal with it for over 2 years. I finally decided to sell them and just buy more of the 1 model I like.

You don't even need extra mags.

With that many Berettas, you could just stick to New York reloads! :D
