Last weekend I ended up with my friend Mike Kupari’s old Beretta 92FS. This is the same gun that the US Army just bought another 100,000 of. I’ve been packing it since I got it, which is about the same time Beretta made the announcement.
The Beretta is a huge pistol for 9mm. The grip frame is massive and the magazine capacity is less than it should be for a gun of this size. Only 15 rounds when other guns with smaller grips are able to pack in 18 or so. But this isn’t a big deal to me. The gun has a lot of character. It’s easy to shoot well with. And it’s not too heavy. It carries well enough in the good Pancake style holster I have for it. But it can print thanks to the Beretta’s slide mounted safety.
Overall, I really like it. I do prefer packing a full sized handgun, or a Mid Size, compared to the popular Sub-Compact options.
