Beretta MP-9
 
Hi
New Member trying to decide on new handgun purchase.
Currently carry a Glock 22 on job and a 27 for personal carry.
Looking at Beretta M-9 which I know is a good reliable weapon.
Does anybody know if 22lr conversion kit will work with M-9 or only on model 92
Love the Glocks too just thought try something different
Only downside I've heard about Beretta is someone with knowledge of gun can easily remove slide with one hand rendering it useless.
Was also looking at EAA Witness 45ACP sold with conversion kit but have heard stories of slides cracking and poor customer service.
Any feedback appreciated

New Gun Purchase
 
After some research ended up going with the Beretta 92F 9mm
Got a great price plus Beretta is offering $ 50.00 rebate for military and LEOS:)
Can't wait to get to range now
Now have to try and talk wife into buying me a conversion kit from Beretta
Hmmm maybe for x-mas

Whoever told you this may have watched too many Jackie Chan movies. Anybody that can simultaneously depress the stop catch button, rotate the take down catch and release the slide off of the frame "easily" with one hand is probably bulletproof anyway...:D

Nice gun...I have a 92FS, sweet shooter...

Actually had a co-worker see the range officer at P.O academy do it to a cadet. Of course after buying one and seeing whats involved to remove slide I don't see how he did it

If I drew my gun to protect myself from someone close enough to strip the slide off, they'd have a handfull of hot lead in 'em before they even thought about trying it. It's not something to worry about. I have one, and I carry one in the Army, but I wouldn't carry a double/single gun for defense. Stick with your Glocks, and shoot the Beretta on the one way range.

You can do it with a Beretta, I've done it(unloaded). But- If someone is going for it, shoot him in the hand, and then in the face.

Calling BS, takes two hands to remove the slide and can't be done while in condition one (ready to fire) let alone while the pistol is in the hands of another person in seconds to make the pistol non operational before they put you to earth. You must be a ninja 4th level:)

Don't know about the condition one, because the gun I've done it on was unloaded; I'm pretty sure your right though, because it should hang up on the mag otherwise. But, all you do is push the slide back a hair with the palm of your hand, and with your thumb you push the button on the left side of the frame, and with your index or middle finger, swing the lever down and pull the slide off. This is considering the gun is pointed at you, and you do it with your right hand. Give it a try if you think it's BS. Also, the pistol we were doing this on was a well worn Army issue service pistol. I don't know if that makes a difference. I'll try it later with my 92F.
