In addition to my Smiths I have a habit of collecting Beretta's. ;)
Here are a few of the many.

I (unfortunately) sold my last Beretta (a Limited Edition M9 from 2000) last year. It used to be my "go to" IDPA gun when I'd get my butt stomped at too many matches.

My wife still never lets me forget that I got rid of it, "You woulda won if you still had your Beretta". :lol:

I have three;
92FS Maryland State Police turn-in.


85FS My second favorite .380 pistol.


950BS .22short, just a fun little shooter.


Now the 92FS doesn't really hold a sweet spot for me, and would gladly trade her away along with her 10 15rnd mags for a standard 87. I shot an 87 once and have been coveting one ever since.

Nice pistolas Leighton.
I think my next Beretta purchase will be a 84F for my ol lady.
I got her a 84B for her 21st Bday.
When I met her she wouldn't even be in the same room with a gun.
Now she's a crack shot.
In this pic you can see her shooting her 84.
Pretty good timing. You can see the shell being ejected and the pin falling.
Thats my girl. :cool:

Thanks my girl. :cool:
You also may want to try the 85FS, single stack compaired to the width of a double. Glad to see you got her on our side. When I met my wife 19yrs ago, it was at a range. Later on I found out she came with her on guns and safe too! Our wedding presents to each other were a 624 44spl for her and a Browning HP for me. Got some really strange looks at the reception over that. My first favorite .380 is the Browning BDA380, basicly the same as a 84, except the safety is on the slide, and the slide is enclosed. It was the first pistol I bought myself.

I have a 92FS duty gun...fine for duty but I would not want to have to conceal it....a few years back I saw an 85 (Cheetah?) in .22 caliber at the LAPD store in the wood box for 325. I still kick myself for not grabbing it.

Been using a 92FS on duty since we switched to them in 1993.

They're great, accurate, reliable guns. My only gripe is they're awfully big for a 9mm, and about as easy to conceal as a brick bat.

"Off Duty" 98% of our guys carry "something else" more concealable and comfortable in Florida's heat/humidity.

I have 1 Beretta, a 92 FS Brigadier. The military wanted it to hold lots of cartridges so it's got a big grip. Mine as nearly every Beretta is utterly reliable.
Lately I've been shooting mine often to burn up all the 9mm rounds that I loaded in the past. If one day, I exhaust all my 9mm cartridges, I plan on selling it with my little 940 revolver.
I've come to a time in my life that I need to start looking at downsizing. I figure a good time to sell them is when there is no more ammo in the safe. :D I don't think anybody will buy reloads, so I will shoot it all off. Only 1,800 more to go! :eek:
Yesterday, I went to the private club and fired off 200 rounds with the pistol. That's a lot of fun just squeezing the trigger!
I also checked the laser of 3 other revolvers that are still in service around the house, a pair of model 66s in 357 and my little 649 J frame pocket revolver. These are now all loaded with 129gn 38+P Federal Hydra shoks. I reconsidered using 357s in the house, as possible hearing damage might come of defending ones life indoors.

Anyway, I had 4 to clean when I got home.
The cleaning part isn't all that fun, but they are all clean, ready for action again.

I have one, a NEOS, I call it my space gun. This thing shoots anything I put in it. Very reliable and very accurate.

Cougar 8000F 9mm owner here. Love the Cougar's rotating barrel design! Ultra reliable with very managable recoil. The grip just fits right in your hand. Near 1,000 rounds through it and not a single problem. As others here have said, it is often not so much the gun, but keeping it clean and properly lubed. The Cougar is famous for liking to be kept 'wet' or it gets fussy. As I said, I keep her well groomed, so my cat has never gotten finicky & always treats me well.

I don't own one as I don't find them to be the most size efficient pistols of their type. (many service 9s hold as many rounds without being as large) However, there are few handguns as sexy, especially in stainless.

This is a little different from your autos but my Beretta Stampede SAA .45 is the nicest single action I've ever owned (including some real Colts). I looked @ it @ Sportsmans out of curiosity & it's fine tuning and trigger convinced me to adopt it. I'm not into Cowboy Shooting but this one has put the fear into coyotes & javelina. I like it well enough all of the Colt's were sold & this one kept. I'd like to find one of the Bisely versions.

What, no love for the 96?

I happen to love the 96. The .40 s&w is my favorite round, with the 45ACP right behind it. My first 96 was dead-on balls accurate. I sold it. :roll: I picked up a NIB 96 and sold that too. :roll: I recently bought another and I am KEEPING IT. I love the way it fits my hand and like it better than some of my S&W autoloaders.
