The Taurus 92 is the frame safety they use the original Beretta machinery to make them.

Another vote for the Beretta 92 fs! Mine's Italian made. Got it over 20 years ago and I still carry it on occasion and take it to the range to shoot.

True

I think the 92 is, by far, the best pistol Taurus ever built. Its not nearly as smooth as the Beretta version though.

Steyr GB. 18 round magazines. More accurate then I'll ever be.

I like my 92 because it is a classic. But I shoot the Px4 better.

My P99 AS is also a sweetheart. Just a very accurate pistol for me.

For the record. I only own 1 Glock - G30SF. Wanted a 10 round .45 pistol for carry.

Doesn't mean the quality of the two guns are comparable.

Who actually uses the safety on a 92 anyway?

My favorite full size 9mm is the S&W 5906. With Mec-Gar 17 round mags it rivals any 9mm for capacity, is built like a tank and shoots any ammo I run through it. I think every 9mm enthusiast should own one!

Posted from my busted old G2 on T-mobile's sorry network.

I don't really use full size 9mm and usually just carry a .45mm.
But if I do ever wanted one I would buy a Walther P99 or PPQ, it would go good with my SW99 in .45mm.
I used to own a BHP a long time ago and it was a great gun for sure.

I love the Walther P99 AS.

I wish all my handguns had the same mag release as the Walther's.

Dang, 45mm!

That sounds like one hell of a service round.

No, he has .45mm. Hella fast, but no mass behind it.

Dunno. I've never owned a 9mm longer than 1 month.

.38 Special, .357 Magnum, and .357SIG are the calibers under "4" that I own and shoot. I do wish I could buy bigger cartridge ammo at 9mm prices.
