There's nothing wrong with the quality of Beretta. They are well made and perform flawlessly. However, the two weapons here are different altogether. One is a full size double-stack duty weapon the other is a low capacity single stack compact. It's like chooseing between a SUV or a compact car...doesn't make sense until you sort out your needs first.

I agree, the Beretta is by no means a inferior weapon, quite to the contrary. On this board there doesn't seem to be an appreciation for them, but speaking from experience, they make a fantastic gun. I have a half-dozen of their handguns and all perform flawlessly. In my opinion, that's why you buy a gun, especially for self defense. It can look cool and all that, but if it doesn't work 100% of the time, it's a paper weight, again, in my opinion.

I agree the 92 is not a good carry piece unless you're comfortable with that big of a gun. I suggest you look at the Beretta Cougar. I think their made by Stoeger now, but I have one in 9mm and one in .45 ACP, and they function perfectly and are more the size your looking for if your going to carry.

I really like the Beretta family - I have the 86, 92 and 96. They are very classy, work flawlessly, are battle tested, and comparable in price to others in their class.

I agree the 92 is too big to carry for most, so if that is your primary goal, you may want to look elsewhere, otherwise, give it a good consideration - it is a fine weapon.

For size comparison, here is the easily carried 86F .380 along side the 96G .40 which is the same frame as the 92FS

Agre with sweeper. If you're going to carry, the P239 is the way to go.
Had both, the Sig is still my edc.

I vote Beretta

Drop in a $6 "D" factory spring, and ya take off 3+ lbs on the Da pull and almost 1 lb off the SA pull.

Get a 92 compact if ya wan something closer in size. But, with the longer barrel and sight radius, plus the lower poundage of the D spring making that 1st DA shot lighter... I'd say that you could likely shoot the 92 over longer distances more accurately than the 239 with the shorter slide/barrel...

Either weapon is good but you must compare apples to apples - - - compare models that are both the same size and type.

Thanks for the feedback...I realize that they are completely different but was looking to add to my collection. I went w the beretta for $250 less & it really is an awesome weapon. Put 300 rds through it today & was thoroughly impressed. The sig will be my next purchase though....looked closely at that 239 today
before I bought the beretta & can't wait to add that one soon
