Beretta 92 COMPACT 9mm 13RD
by Tim P Date Added: Wednesday 09 May, 2012
First time buyer from Bud's. Certainly won't be my last experience with them.

Ditto to all the positive comments so far. Outstanding pistol! Arrived as a new gun should, with all working parts lightly oiled not caked with grease. Having never owned a Beretta, I was shocked at how simply it breaks down. You can literally go from fully assembled to having the slide off in 2-3 seconds. Wish my other guns were that simple. As for handling, I qualified for my CCH with this gun within 24 hours of shooting it for the first time. The instructor was impressed with how well I was able to group the shots, even with double-taps and short bursts of rapid fire (admittedly, so was I). The heft and balance of the gun makes recoil a non-issue and easy to drop back on target. As for accuracy, dead on! I'm no range pro by any means as I've just started shooting again after 14 years of not even owning a pistol. That said, I've had 5-shot groups that only printed 3 holes, and those were all touching! As noted in another review, I thought it was interesting the mags are imprinted for law enforcement and government use only. I call them the Bill Clinton signature series. If you want a great gun, wth Italian quality and dependability, that's just plain fun to shoot (and shoot well), I highly recommend this one. You won't regret it. I bet money yours will be the only one you'll see like it during trips to the range too. How many of your Glock-shooting buddies can say that?

One note: This is a compact 92FS, not a "compact" pistol by today's standards. It still fits my medium-sized hands well, but if you're wanting something that just disappears when you put it on, that's going to be a challenge.
