Well, I was furious with myself, now I'm cooled down to simply feeling like a dolt. Got a new .32 ACP Beretta Tomcat Inox today (3032, the alloy model with the matte stainless-like finish). Natch, I was going to field strip and even remove the grips, remove any excess oils (or touch up if dry), tidy it up, lube it properly, reassemble and return to the case until the weekend. Bungled it. There is a tiny plunger and screw in the safety that can fly away very, very easily when left grip is removed. It is a notorious problem; this I now know. Natch, I learned of this AFTER mine took a stroll. Some idiot with a name identical to mine did no reading, watched no vids and had to figure out afterward what had happened. Amazingly, I found the plunger. Did not find the spring. Even if I did, the parts involved are so tiny (wee, wee, tiny), I wouldn't trust myself to reassemble. Going to go see the dealer tomorrow (good guy), but have a feeling this one's headed back to a Beretta Service Center at my expense after less than a dozen hours in my possession. I'm sure I've felt more sheepish in my life, but I can't remember when.
