    haven't gotten a chance to shoot it cuz I picked this up from the store on my lunch break yesterday, but I bought this used. I had been wanting a .40 beretta, 96 and I found one last friday at this store I had never been to. It was kinda between this and a sig sauer p229 (I believe) .40 S&W (came with 4 magazines!). but since the beretta was cheaper, I went with that. plus I have never fired a sig, and I have shot this type of beretta. I also like the hogue grips that were already on it. anyways, check it out:

    btw, the wife hasn't noticed that we have 2 guns now. hopefully, but the time she does, the statute of limitations on her being able to say anything about it is long gone

    Very nice! I also see that you have a glock. Since you've shot both, is there one that you prefer over the other?

    well I haven't shot my beretta. but I have shot other ones. I find it easier to shoot with the beretta simply because its a full sized handgun, and my glock 23 is a compact. I plan on taking both to the range next time I go and shooting with both. hopefully I can do this over the weekend.

    I see u have 2 M&P's in your avi. which do you prefer.

    I prefer my fs m&p .40 over my compact. Four years ago I rented the m&p 9mm and m&p .40 and I fell in love with series. I've been so biased its ridiculous.

    It's not your fault once you shot a M&P you'll love it ( for some anyways)

    LMAO, i'll keep that in mind. another good thing, is that she rarely ever goes in the safe that the guns are in anyways.
