Wow, it's amazing how a lack of gun safety can make someone look so unattractive...

Seriously, why all the 92 pictures? I thought you meant REAL Beretta pistols?
Huh? The 92 is the flagship of the Beretta pistol line.
Hey George, you still got that 92FS you liked so much, or did you end up selling it, you horse trader...?

Never could understand how 'lowest bidder' status makes a gun good. Sig had and has the better weapon for the job. There are half a dozen better double-stack 9mm's that were on the market when they decided that Beretta had the best lies, kickbacks, and had hidden the defects in their gun the best. After Sig, I'd have chosen the CZ-75, Ruger P85, Browning High Power, or pretty much any other gun.
I like Beretta products. I love the Model 950BS I own as well as the Model 21. I think they made a Great Garand and the AR-70's I've examined all seemed top-notch.

Yup... I sold it. I wasn't going to but when a vehicle dies on you all the sudden...
This isn't too bad though, because I have found my love in the Beretta Cougar that is on my hip right now, under my sweater.

The only Beretta I've fired is a compact 9mm, a 9000S, I think, with a double action only trigger.
I didn't like it, mostly becaue of the trigger.

I remeber being denied entrance to the Porsche Owners Club because the example I had was a 914 and they didn't deem it worthy enough. (I understand they are okay now) I was ticked. Not that it mattered because I totalled it a few days later (early apexed, hit the inside curb that made the rear end let go and I went spinning off the track).
Now I understand where they were coming from.
The 9000 series are not like the other Berettas and I am hesitant to except them as such.
If you have only fired a 9000, you have not fired a real Beretta.
