    I just have one question. Which of these two guns is most popular? Either for bad guy use or good guy use, doesn't matter.

    i think glock owns most police agencies,the beretta the military contracts,sig dabbled and won orders in both areas,bad guys whatever they can get their hands on.also 1911 style has made a big comeback in some areas.

    Most bad guys use cheap guns such as .22lrs or .25auto old guns. But responsible gun owners, can choose either. I prefer Glocks.

    Which of the two defines your intended use?

    For carry I would probably choose Glock over Beretta's options. That being said gimme a 1911 or a Walther PPS.

    ...the Beretta then!

    The Beretta is a ridiculously large gun for the round it fires and the amount of ammo it holds. You can get a Glock 19, which still holds 15 rds of ammunition, has a shorter barrel, a grip that isn't as fat and awkward, and doesn't have that God-awful frame mounted safety-decocker.
    As much as I dislike the Beretta, I do have to say that I haven't had one that I've been issued ever jam, but because of the crappy magazines the military INSISTS on buying, the ones I've used have hardly ever gone to slide lock.

    I prefer glocks over berrettas. I've shot plenty of both and I will tell everyone glock is simply better. Now sig vs glock would be a different story.

    I think the beretta's trigger is sloppy but it is reliable and its a big beefy gun so almost no recoil.

    Glocks are just as reliable the trigger is more consistent (its dao) and has less creep. Also after market parts and accessories are everywhere. And concealibility is a huge advantage.

    Just my .02 ymmv

    I'm an XD guy, but if I have to go between these two, I'd have to go with Glock for sure.

    They are both great pistols.

    i prefer the Glock because they come in many sizes, and many of them are concealable. The Beretta is a fine piece, but concealable it is not.

    Berettas are the 1911's of 9mms. I would choose a 9mm beretta over a 9mm glock. The Glock will win in other calibers though but for 9mm the Beretta all the way.

    "Which of the two is most popular?" It has to be the Glock. It is what I prefer also.
  14. Beretta. The standard for all bad guys. It is like a rule or something that when you work for a high class criminal agency you have a beretta.

    Military and Beretta

    My brother is an investigator for the Army. He told me last week that the Army is about to start weening off the Berettas and going to a 45 caliber handgun.

    been hearing that too,but beretta just won a pretty big u.s contract again here recently 30 or 60 days ago.replacing worn out pistols supposedly.just found it on jan. 29th u.s army ordered 450,000 92 fs pistols and spare parts for total of 220 million. all pistols built by u.s workers in maryland.

    As to popularity, no comparison. Beretta's military and police contracts around the world dwarf Glock's. Good enough for our Army, good enough for me.

    I carry a 92FS concealed. It's not too big. Just need to find the right location and holster. Accurate as any other autoloading pistol I've ever shot, except my Remington-Rand 1911A1 with Colt National Match barrel. Beautifully made and totally reliable.

    Glock, on the other hand, is a striker-fired plastic dog turd.
