Browning by Beretta?
Today I went to my local shop to pick up a RIA 38super I had ordered.Basic GI parkerized,wood grips,a good toter.While there I was offered a Browning BDA.I had never heard of this gun but had to have it!It looks like a minnie Browning High Power,made by Baretta in 1979.13+1 mag in 380.Ican't wait to try it out along with the RIA.Anyone have any history with this little gun?

I haven't owned one, but I handled a couple at the shop. I think they're an awfully nice pistol.

I have one, and love it
I have a Beretta 84, which is identical except for the placement of the safety/decocker. It's a great little gun, quite accurate and reliable, with a decent trigger and good ergonomics. I have big hands, so I added a set of Pachmayrs and that was all that was needed. I've put about 500 rounds through it and my only problem was with some underpowered handloads originally for my wife's Sig 230. I've carried a Sig 220 or a 1911 for years, but this has become my favorite carry pistol.
