The Beretta grip is fat. I have the VZ golf ball grips on mine and it helps. They are a tiny bit thinner but the texture is more important. I cant comment on the Vertec but the Ruger SR9 is worth looking at. Under $400. My wife and I have a pair of SR9c's and are very happy with them. They come with 10 and 17 round mags if you live in a free state. The SR9 full size has 17 round mags. Matching pistols makes it easier so there is no confusion on how does this thing operate or mixing up mags at 3 AM.
