Nice, It kind of looks like the baby version of the M9. Am I right?
How do you like the open slide design? No jams or stoppages right?

Hmm, I may have to start a new "I want it" fund.

I have never had a jam with it. I want the 92FS Compact as well. I just can't find one locally and I hate ordering guns online.

The Beretta is a fine pistol from what I have heard and is reliable and a good shooter. Fine looking that is certain.
Go have some milk-toast and lie down.

Hoooo, I can't stop laughing after that one.

Have you seen the Turkish made knock offs? They machine them to be just like the Beretta's. The first time I saw one, I thought it was a Beretta.

Terry,
You might look at the Taurus clones. They have variations on the old type Beretta safeties. It is on the frame and acts like a 1911 safety, allowing cocked and locked carry or locking the hammer in the down position. It moves up for safe or down for fire like the 1911. If you push it past the off position, against a spring, it acts like a decocker, blocking the firing pin and dropping the hammer, then returning to off. You can then push it up to safe if you want to block things with the hammer down. It is ambidextrous. This is my PT 100 in .40 S&W. The quality may not be up to Beretta standards but mine has never failed from the first round, though it came new with a broken firing pin. They fixed it free and it has worked perfectly with ball, JHPs from 135 grain to 180 grain and reduced practice loads using 165 grain bullets. Might be worth looking at. They come in 9mm and .40 cal with fixed or adjustable rear sights. They use the same safety on the PT 908 which is a Sig clone. This has also been 100% reliable from the first round brand new.

I second machinist's suggestion. My wife has one of the Tauri and, if you like a 9 that big, it is a terrfic gun. Feeds and shoots well with whatever we feed it and I absolutely LOVE that safety. I wouldn't trade it for a Beretta for any reason. I am not a 92 fan any way but I actually like the Taurus.

I switch around. A G27, LCR.,S&W 442 or for serious business a G30.At night I usually carry the G27. It has NS and a Laser Max.

Talk about raised from the dead!
I haven't posted on this thread for over 2 years!



There has been a lot of Beretta talk.
I didn't own this last time I posted. 92A1.
It's a good pistol.






These days, I sometimes carry one of my 1911's .45acp, usually a commander size one or my G23 gen 4 in .40.

Since I've gotten this though, it was a gift, I have only been carrying it. I absolutely love this pistol.
Not only do I love the pistol but it is special because it was a gift from someone special.
Sig Sauer MK 25 "P226".



In a Galco Leather holster.

I love reading the old post . I love to read how people and myself how we change views over the years . Pre-2003 my 1911 in 45 acp was my everyday carry gun for 30 yrs on my CCW and all Glocks guns should all be melt down . Boy has my view on Glocks changed after getting a couple in trades and shooting them . This is my pre-2003 carry gun and my Glock I carry gun today .

Three for me Gunny and not much has changed. Still prefer my P226 40S&W but added a S&W SD40 to the rotation and a Blackhawk Serpa for the Sig.

Just two for me... Mostly .380, but every once in a while the 1911 wants to go for a walk.

My EDC is the Kahr CW40 but if the weather was cooler, allowing a heavier outer garment I wouls prefer my Sig 239 in .40s&w or a K frame S&W revolver. They are heavier but are still comfortable to wear. They just don't hide under a shirt like the Kahr will for me. The Kahr replaced a J frame Mod 638 Bodyguard and is a big step up in capability while still carrying very well in an IWB holster.

I have become a big fan of the .40 S&W cartridge. It is compact, potent, and versatile, with loads ranging from 9mm level to .357 Magnum level in bullet weights from 135 grain to 180 grains. I first shot my 1911A1 when I was 11 years old and have always been a big fan of the .45ACP cartridge. It is still the only auto round I would be comfortable carrying with non-expanding bullets, though of course I prefer JHPs. That said I just find the .40 a better round for concealed carry for me.

I think those are great for many people but not for me. I don't like pocket carry and I like the instant access of my IWB holster. I wear a belt and suspenders on work pants every day with a work shirt untucked so weight is not an issue at this level but a case like that would not work well under my shirt. The Kahr hides completely when raked about 30 degrees. It is comfortable, secure, and hidden.

I think my father would have liked one of those cases. He used a fanny pack type and that would have worked better.
