    Well, that is something that you don't see every day.

    I didn't know such a weapon existed.

    Congratulations on your new pistol Morgo! I had never heard of the model until your post, but that is an amazing looking pistol!

    Sweet!

    The sad news is that I was really, really happy with my early-ish Italian INOX... until I saw that. :eek:

    Wow... I'm not all that knowledgeable about Beretta and didn't even know that existed. That said, I want! Really really want!

    Looks like this one was made in 2005. Not bad, spent a few years in storage :)

    I hardly ever use this term, but the only way to describe that Beretta is "pimp". With out a doubt, that's the coolest looking Beretta model I've ever seen. Wish they would make them again. I like heft in my semis.

    DANG!!! I thought I was doing good with an unfired blued 92SB and you post that! Very nice. Now I have something else on my list. Where did you even see that that existed?

    :)

    I vote the Steel I. I think the Steel I is a little more classy than the Billennium which is just a little too blingy for my taste.

    I saw them a long time ago but was never going to pay what they were going for then, over $3k. When two came up brand new for around half the old price I decided I needed one :)

    Very nice!

    Might I ask, how did you manage to get permitted for these and the rifle in the pic? I thought the restrictions over their made it nigh impossible for a civilian to own handguns, let alone semi-auto centerfire rifles?

    Just apply for a licence. There are a few hoops to jump through and waiting times plus requirements to keep the licence but otherwise its not that hard.
    Semi auto centrefire rifles are another matter, they are hard to get unfortunately.
    That one pictured is actually a Ruger charger in a Nordic stock, its still considered a handgun due to overall length :)

    So you're telling me that as long as it's short enough, a rifle is considered a handgun, so you could get away with a short barreled AR, FAL, etc?

    Totally opposite of US law; Put a stock on something under 26" without "da stamp", go to prison.

    I'm not sure which one is more ridiculous...........
