I'm in the market for a new pistol and leaning real hard to the Beretta 92.

I'll have to sit and drool for a while--have insurance due in Nov and Christmas in Dec---so maybe around tax time:(

I HATE slide mounted safeties such as the beretta's, otherwise they are a fine pistol.

I'd have a really hard time deciding between a Beretta 92 and a Browning HP

Beretta made a few, very nice 92 variants with frame mounted safeties (Steel I, Billenium, Combat). Unfortunately, the prices were out of sight.

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.

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.
