    It was at a local gun store.. Basically sign up.. Shoot 40 rounds from 3 guns and give your opinion.

    They had the ninty2 and some Polymer model as well as a CX-4 which is a carbine.

    I have to say the ninety2 blew my brains ! I never expected a handgun to be so good!

    20 YARD target.. Its one of those 2x3ft ones but still.. 20 rounds rapid fired. Thats only his head, his body etc isnt in the picture.

    The Polymer gun felt crap!

    The Carbine felt soo sweet! It had great accuracy and low recoil. A great option for a bullpup 9mm Carbine. Nothing I would ever use but if they made it in 223 it could be awesome!

    All in all 40 rounds for free and not having to clean my gun was a pretty awesome weekend.

    I wouldn't mind messing with a 90-2.

    I don't see LEOs flocking to this weapon over Glocks, however. I have no background qualified enough to really say this with any authority, however, as an enthusiast and hopefully soon, Glock Armorer, I don't see the 90-2 being superior in terms of maintenance and end cost (which is what LEOs look for I think, I mean, springs every year and some white lithium), or in terms of having a nice, stock trigger.

    Not a bad gun for the range, but there are many better guns out there.

    IN double action mode I felt like it was a boat anchor! really tough to get pulling and then non linear. In single action it felt great!

    And.. I live in Atlanta

    Theres a higher standard for pistols around here. That standard is based around its carrying ability and how well its performs in a SHTF situation. The Baretta is a good gun, but it just doesnt measure up to the daily carry and SHTF 'requirements.'

    I suppose you are right. despite the 92 being my favorite, and most accurate gun, I do not carry it (S9), and if SHTF i would go for something else first (AR, Shottie).

    I didnt shoot either pistol in DA, so they both seemed ok to me.

    The Cx4 they had had a vertical front grip and a holographic sight. It was tons of fun...for 10 rounds...
