Default I like the Beretta 92G!

Hello. Had to hunt on the used market for years to find one, but a couple months ago I managed to snag a Beretta 92G. For those who aren't aware, on the 'G' variant the slide mounted decocking lever is spring loaded, so it does not also function as a manual safety. Personally I think this is a "better mousetrap" than the conventional F/FS design.

I had to buy second hand because for some reason, Beretta would never sell new Models 92G or 96G to the non-LEO community. Go figure. And the few trade-ins I saw for a dozen years or more all looked like they'd been tied to the back bumper of an ATV and dragged down a long gravel road.

I don't do pictures. One thing there's not much of in my life is electronic gadgetry.

The Beretta 92G looks just like a 1980's-90s vintage F or FS model. The slide mounted decocking lever is spring loaded, everything else functions the same.

Had a three inch slow fire offhand group with the gun at roughly 25 yards yesterday. It does seem to "like" 115 grain fmj ball ammo and hits to point of aim with it.

At speed and in a little closer I've never found the first-shot-in-double-action operation to be an annoyance. Can't say the same about some other DA/SA semiautos I've done trigger time with. Something about the grip angle and balance of a Model 92 seems to suit me personally, it's not easy to explain better than that.

I have small hands and trouble holding onto the 92/M9's. That's the only reason I don't have one.
