This is my first post on this forum. I got it because I mainly use forums on my iPhone, and was recommended this app. So far I like it. I'm not a hand-gun guy, I like rifles more, but my dad thought I needed a handgun to defend my house if need be, so he gave me one of his Berettas, and sent me on my marry way. It is a model 92sb compact, and so far, I like it. However, as a military enthusiast, I know the "m9" has had issues with the side coming off during firing (until the 92fs) , and wanted to know if the 92sb was safe. I don't know much about the slide mishaps, but when it comes to safety like this, I figured it best to come straight here. Basically, is the Beretta M92sb Compact safe? Would you trust your life to it?
