I'm actually debating on getting a 92 as well. I want a range gun that is accurate and fun to shoot, reliable, etc. I've been looking at the 92A1 or maybe getting a full size HK USP in 9mm. Still haven't decided yet. I've shot both and like them both about equally. As far as the size of the 92, yea it's big especially for me, being only 5 foot 7, but I'm not going to carry it, that's what my USP40 compact is for. But it's nice and the weight helps with the recoil.

Well, it's really big and bulky for a 9mm.
And I don't particularly care for the safety on the slide.
And I don't like the fact that you must deactivate the safety after decocking.

But they are rather accurate.

It is big for a carry gun. I have one and love the accuracy. Not a huge fan of the 9mm prefer the .40, caliber i carry in a colt defender.

I photographed Beretta's Armor manual. very easy to take down and work on. From what I hear, LAPD for the most part likes theirs. They shoot the DAO version.

Most PD's passed it by in a cloud of dust as they went to the Glock 19 & 17. and others went for the .40 s&w G23 & G22 over the weaker 9mm.

One thing I forgot to add. I purchased my 92FS for my father to keep as a bedside table gun. he loved the feel. fit in his hand and angle of the frame reminded him of his 1911. (VERY similar angle. done that way on purpose) I took a 1911 main spring and switched them out for a lighter DAO pull for his arthritis and it digested EVERYTHING we put through it. mag had 15 rounds of 115 gr Hydroshocks. Put a CT grip laser on it for him also, along with the factory installed Tritiums.

Wife has it in her mattress rig by crossbreed now. pity the fool who busts our door down in the middle of the night.

Not a bad handgun, better ones out there though.

I have several and they have all been reliable and accurate enough.

Heres an Inox Vertec and 92fs.

The 92 is a decent pistol but I'm not a fan. Bulky for 9mm but you're looking at 40S&W which is a better fit to that frame. A friend has the 9mm (and loves it) and another has a Ruger P89. Both of those guns seem large and awkward to me but then I'm used to the 1911 and Hi-Power.

I would try out more pistols before buying because there are so many fine choices. If you still like the fit and function of the 92 then of course get it.
