Geez! I'd just keep the one that hits the bullseyes and sell the others, but that's just me.

We are all different...I collect some stuff too (knives). Not as expensive as 92's but I am quirky that way.

He shouldn't show you his bull pups... LOL

hahaha

Ya know... In the past, I'd be scratching my head when someone posted a pic with multiples of the same gun too... So, I would have agreed with you in the past. I have had duplicates of the same gun a few times... Just two. And, I'd ALWAYS end up selling one of them to pay for something new I'd eventually come across.

However, I have been in constant gun buying mode since around 1996. And, I've owned over 50 weapons since 1993. I am always buying something, and paying off a gun. And, I have my next 2 or 3 gun purchases all planned out. And, I'd always be selling something that I lost interest in - so I could buy the next thing or pay something off. I've been doing this for years.

Over the years, I've owned just about everything. And, I can honestly say that now, when I go to one of the huge gun shows, I really don't see anything left that I want. I either don't care for it, or I've already previously owned it.

As for the Berettas specifically... I've always liked the platform, and I've owned several over the years. About 2 years ago, I got the bug again. And, I started carrying a fullsize 92 concealed over 18 months ago. Then, I started getting some of the variants.

Over time, I found that the platform is my fav. I know how to strip the frame down completely, and I can customize/change parts on my own. Also, I shoot them very well, and I found that with rubber grip panels, I like the platform better than I do 1911s. In a 1 handed grip, the 92 balances super nicely. I really like the undercut of the trigger guard too.

Eventually, I started collecting a 2nd set - a set I would occasionally shoot, but one that would mostly sit in the safe and not get beat up like the ones I use for carry guns. At first, I bought the first duplicate as a gift I would hold on to for when my son got older. And, I sorta told myself that with the purchase of each duplicate.

Now, I carry the 92FS, M9A1 and the 92 compact. And, I still have a set to look pretty.

I'm just sorta in collection mode. And, after owning so many varied gun - I've just gone ahead and invested fully in this platform. I have tons of spare parts and extra mags. And, honestly, the only thing I really feel like buying is more Beretta 92s - hahaha.

But admittedly, at one time, I never understood the guys who bought so many Glocks, or so many of whatever... Now, I am that guy. And, I understand that most people won't get it. It's just the platform I like the most after all my experience with everything else.

Well, that is a nice PX4 compact. Very cool.

But actually, I did mention that

This is in addition to the way the safety rotates the rear section of the firing pin assembly on the Berettas...
But, hey, I don't mean to give ya a hard time... You are a fellow Beretta fan

He failed to grasp that FTF is a Community. He was even welcomed when he showed up with those very words. Yet he still wanted to make waves and throw stones.....*shrug*

Only a couple guys around that have that urge to change every post's color and size and font and... I'm thinking phelenwolf... It get's tiresome.

Smite is a good word...
