is this still worth repeating? Most M9 operators today weren't even born when that happened.

The rest of your post is clear and speaks for itself.

Non-issue in my book. They fixed that before I was even legal to own a handgun.

My experience has been that the 92FS is very accurate, but then again the only handgun ive ever shot that i couldnt adjust to was a Ruger 40 caliber. I never hit anything with that one.

There are still a lot of old 92 and 92f floating around the civy market that havent been upgraded to the fs design...

Hmmm... Every firearm is accurate. It only depends on the operator. I have a 92 INOX and shoot it very well and often. Ergos are very nice and has low recoil. I replaced the mainspring and added a steel guide rod. Cant go wrong with a 92FS.

I've managed to qualify expert every time with issued M9s that ranged from pretty newish to very worn. The accuracy has not been an issue.

This should be on a banner over the main gate to this forum. This may not be 100 per cent exactly so, but the prevailing folly is "I can do as good as my gun is"

The only problem with the beretta is IDPA. You are going to encounter safety officers who insist that you draw the gun with decocker engaged, despite the fact that the rule book says it's the shooters option. I have the same problem with the Ruger P95. I carry a copy of the rule book and a letter from the tiger team, I still have safety officers who demand I draw the gun with the decocker engaged. I just ask for a refund and never return to that given range.

They treat it as a thumb safety. It is both, but I guess they want to keep the field leveled with other DA/SA. My SIG decocker has to be down.

I just get tired of people saying that ... This gun is really accurate, or that gun is so accurate! No one ever stops to think that a gun is just an object. Its the operator who makes the accuracy happen.
