Beretta people/questions
 
I have owned 4 Berettas up until this week,(1-Nano,2-PX4sc,1 950 .25) I have for one or another reason sold/traded them with regret. This week I have gotten 2 more. So I am on 5 and 6 now. Plz put me in a straight jacket if I talk about another trade on my Berettas.

But my question is does Beretta hold a special place in your heart. Now I know everybody hates Glock guy, just cause they're so annoying. There's 1911 guy who seems to be a older wiser crowd. ect. But Beretta seems to be so elegant, sexy that who could not be a fan?

Also, does an Italian made Beretta mean more to you than a Made in USA?
I must admit it did for me. I had to have an Italian made 92c. I didn't even want to look at an American made 92 of any size. But I do love the American made only PX4sc

pic please....and yes, I like Berettas. I like Cougars and I really like Cheetahs (Browning BDA), they fit so nice in the hand. Just wish they weren't .380s. I only own a Italian 92FS.

...oh and Italian meant something when they were hard to get..now you can readily buy either and the craftsmanship is equal IMO.

Hell yeas I love cougars too!! The gun too is ok. But would you only own an Italian 92 or is it just cause you came into it?

My first handgun that I purchased for myself when I turned 21 was an Italian Beretta 92FS. I added a 85 for my wife and a 21a.

But I consider myself a pretty rounded handgun owner. I've had Sigs, Glocks, 1911s, Rugers, S&W, and a Makarov. My Glocks probably get the most rounds through them and the most carry. But I still hang on to my Berettas and stay proficient with the 92.

I find that the guns outside of the Beretta and Glock tend to get used for specific tasks, like certain matches, certain small game hunts, certain carry parameters, etc. The Beretta 92 and the Glocks I tend to consider as my general purpose guns.

my first pistol was a Beretta Storm ... just fit my hand better than any of the other poly guns. I have no complaints whatsoever, thousands of rounds through it with never a hiccup :)

I do like the Beretta guns, even though I am a die-hard 1911 guy. I have a 92FS that I shoot better than my .45 (and it gripes my A$$) I Also have a 418 and a 950BS, both of which are outstanding quality guns. You know, of course, that James Bond don't use no junky guns! (418)

the 950bs was my first Beretta! The Jetfire .25 I miss that lil guy.

First purchase was a PX4 full size 9mm, just got a Nano today even though i bought a Ruger LC9 a few weeks ago... Next gun will be PX4 40Cal then I'll be looking at most likely a colt AR-15 or a tactical shot gun

I have the 92, and love it. also have the 950. Love it as well.

I wish some American designer/manufacturer would come out with a weapon that I could love as much as I love the Beratta 92, and SIG 226.
