    I'm thinking of picking one up...I've never shot one, but I've always like the design and have thinking of going to 9mm anyways. I've got an M&P .40 now, and would be selling it to fund the Beretta.
    I know there are a bunch of different styles, so what's good for a casual shooter? I won't be CCWing (CA). American made or Italian?

    M&P 9
    CZ 75B

    Both are priced close and can have trigger work done to them. I've only shot the 92FS Inox at the range and felt indifferent about them.

    personally they didnt seem like anything special. i think i'd much rather get a CZ75 over the 92FS

    I have a CZ75 SP01 and CZ75 PCR. I love both. I've shot a thorougly used 92FS and wasn't a huge fan. My brother has a CZ75PCR and just got a 92FS Inox on Saturday and he likes them both.

    I'd at a minimum shoot one before buying, esp. if you're selling something else to fund it.

    Solid, big, clunky, not easy to carry. But reliable with good mags.

    Slide to frame fit are veryy good. Very smooth racking the slide, like the skeletonized slide.

    Trigger is horrible, even after a trigger job. Sights are horrible.

    Basicly seriously deficient in the two most important areas.

    I have a 92 (not an F or FS, original 92 circa mid 70's in 99% condition with the frame mounted safety ... where it should be).

    I hardly shoot it. It's a nice shooting gun, but not great. I would seriously take a CZ75 over a Beretta. The only reason I keep this one is because of sentimental value. My dad gave it to me about 5 years ago ... after he had it for 25+ years.

    Thats what I heard. I don't want something that has a shitty trigger, or sights for that matter.

    This is the only Beretta I've ever wanted:

    Otherwise... I think a CZ75SA is a much better all-around gun.

    I loved the M9....fits my hand perfectly, very accurate, recoil is like nothing, reliable as long as you don't use the checkmate mags.

    Big and oversized for the majority of shooters, total lube whore, reliable with factory mags, shoots nice and straight, DA shooting sucks.

    Not a bad gun all around.

    Barrel doesn't tilt so they are supposed to be better for suppressors. Safety is on the slide though, which fucking sucks.

    Gets a bad rep mostly because of it's large size and weight. However I love my variant (84f) and have shot dozens of 92s with no problem. It's a very reliable gun, low cost, easy to keep clean and in proper working order. It shoots well, is accurate, and there is a huge aftermarket for parts and modification. They also tend to be nearly identical from copy to copy.

    this.

    Any attempt at a quick malfunction clearance drill often resulted in engaging the safety during the racking motion. Same when changing a mag if using the overhand slingshot or whatever it's called to rack the slide. Gayest of gay. Great range queen though. Nice to look at.

    if you dont want safety on the slide, get the taurus pt92

    and its also cheaper than the beretta
