    Which gun would ou prefer; the Berreta 92S or Colt 1911A1. I am deciding which one to purchase, and i know both are commenly used firearms. I know the Colt is a .45 ACP, but i would prefer the 9mm Berreta in that area.

    Thoughts?

    if you want a 9mm cz75 would be my choice. berretta 92 any model isnt worthy of being in the same universe as the 1911.

    The Beretta is kind of an ungainly thing for a medium caliber like 9mm but reliable. Myself, 1911 for 45ACP and a Hi-Power for 9mm. Extremely satisfied with both and have no need for anything newer. You can find Hi-Powers and of course other pistols in 40S&W (which might be another caliber to add to your list).

    Both are great designs, but i think the 1911 is the superior handgun. Im sure alot of other people will agree.

    no question

    Every gun collection must have the 1911:D that's not necessarily true with a 92
    I still don't have one but it won't be long.:cool:

    Have you looked at a Sig P229 or 229?

    Just curious, since we're changing your mind, what were the features of the 92 you liked? Softer recoil of the 9mm, cheaper ammo or more rounds in the magazine - or double action? Or more specific to the Beretta itself? You might want to defend your original stance before changing. Hate to lead you astray! The 1911 is hard to beat but honestly it's not for everyone.
