    You aren't going to get much sympathy or constructive criticism here! Congratulations! Next order of business, as has been stated, is the bulk ammo purchase. I feel your pain but welcome to the dark side of the force.

    Start reloading, it will help cut the amount of ammo you shoot in half. You will spend half your time at the range picking up all the brass you can find so you will shoot less. Or? You end up spending more time at the range and shooting the same amount of ammo, the wife wonders where the heck you have been all day. At least that's how it worked out for me at least.

    Awesome! You will really love that Beretta. My Italian M9A3 sits on my nightstand.

    I'm so jealous. Those wood grips look very good!

    They function extremely well too.
    Pricey , but worth it.

    After 35+ years of combat improvements and testing the Beretta 92 is probably at the top of it's game right now. When the surplus stuff drops in price and becomes more available I will be in the market.

    Military use is really good to find the shortcomings and allow the product to evolve but I'm not sure surplus military is the top of the game. I'm not sure TDP restrictions will allow that. Is a Gen 1 Locking Block really preferred to a Gen 3?

    I would likely just order a new $429.99 92FS if I wanted one.

    With the prices of the beretta92s dropping to make room for the newer lines I'm really tempted part with a few of my glocks to make room for another Beretta. Yes.. I'm digging mine that much.

    My 1st semi was a Beretta 92. Something about the fit of the slide and frame, feels like it's teflon coated. Very smooooth.

    -------You guys just hold it right there--------

    Where did the OP, Godsgunman, mention any 2-legged Adult Female being a risk factor?

    I'm envious of his much more consistent grip and accuracy.

    @Godsgunman , just be sure you avoid full-sized 1911s. They'll be just awful for your budget.

    With the multitude of nice full sized pistols on the market today you can't limit yourself . Man Code . Variety is paramount . As stated before , welcome to the dark side . I see a Berreta 92 project in my near future . Veterans speak very highly of them , and that means a lot to me .

    Am I the only one here with more ammo than time?

    WestKentucky and I agree, the frame mounted safety is better. I suppose you can train to extend one finger (thumb) while at the same time contracting the index finger on the trigger, but I think 2 contractions is more intuitive.

    But I have a pile of Beretta clips for my Storm. It rocks.

    Aye there's the rub. I do have that 2-legged female risk factor, plus 2 mini ones. I wouldn't trade them for the world but truth is without the aforementioned there would be no issue lol

    I have a couple of Beretta M92 with metal triggers that I bought for less than $400 a piece. Both are in 97+% condition. One is the 10 year Anniversary model with gold inlays of all four branches of the military service. The slides on these pistols rack like they’re on ball bearings. I’ll be darn if I know why the 92s fell from grace...old technology I suppose. Plus it’s a whole hand full of pistol. Both are accurate and reliable...just not very concealable.
