Hello Beretta owners! I went shooting at the NRA range with my Ruger stable last night, and a friend was there with a Beretta 92F in nine mm. Behold, I shot it, pretty well for a first timer, and now, I need to educate myself on this particular model, and in general, the Beretta line. What might you good folks be able to tell me about the Beretta world of pistols, I may well need one! :D

Definately not much at all wrong with it - especially as a first pistol. It would really be best to try and shot whatever else you can, see what you like, but really, even if you just went out right now and bought a beretta 92 - I'm sure you would be happy for years to come.

I'm with GunRunner & Mike, the 92 is a great pistol. It's one the the most accurate out of the box pistols I own. IMO, to get something comparable you would have to pay much more.
If you dont already know the 92 is what the US military uses as its primary sidearm.

Either the 92 or 96 would be a good choice and would last a lifetime. All my Beretta 92's and 96's had a rather hard trigger pull out of the box. This was easily taken care of by getting wolff pistol service pak type I stock # 69521 spring kits. These are easy to put in and gives you a real nice crisp trigger pull that greatly increases acuraccy because you don't have to tug at the trigger so hard. I always got the INOX models so I would not have to worry about rust but I read somewhere that they was discontinueing the Stainless line. Night Sights are another option that is well worth the $$.

The Berrettas are fine pistols. They are a full (large) size gun, much like the 1911. All metal, no plastic, with a large open slide,that ejects everything. They also are very easy to field strip and do not need any special tools in doing so. A gun i would recomend to add to anyones stable. Besides the Luger, they are the definitive 9mm pistol in my book. Everyone should have at least one. :wink: Jack.

I have a 96. Pros: reliable and accurate. Cons: large grips and trigger. The pros outwiegh the cons in my book. Overall a great weapon.

I had a 92 - ended up selling it b/c I wanted something smaller & easier to conceal. Looking back I regret selling it (should have just waited a few months to get my small carry gun) - as other's have mentioned it was reliable accurate and cheap to feed and fun to shoot. The only thing I didn't like about it was the heavy double action first trigger pull.

I own two Beretta 92's (one is Stainless steel and the other is black). I also own a Taurus 92. My stainless 92 seems to be my son's inheritance. He took it home four years ago and I haven't seen it much since then. You can't go wrong with them. Like a lot of guys who like guns, I have several and my primary pistol is a 1911, but the 92's are a very close second. They shoot everything, they are accurate, they balance well, and it is difficult to find a better gun. Had I learned on a 92 first, it would be my favorite, but they gave us 1911's back in 1971. Your first is your best!
