Hello everyone,

I'm starting here as I do in every other forum I use to introduce myself.
I am currently waiting for the arrival of my first firearm.
After looking at purchasing a Glock 19, I found a great deal on
a Beretta 92fs, so that's what I went with. I fired both at the firing
range and was quite pleased with both which made it a hard decision.
However, the Beretta just happened to fall into my lap so to speak.

Anyways, I was lurking in the forums for a little bit before I purchased
my firearm and this forum seems very informative. I'll be lurking around
some more for interesting and informative articles.

Stay safe,

-Paul

The Beretta is not a bad choice.. I would have gone with the G19 but to each their own.

Haha. Yeah I'll probably end up picking up the Glock down the line.
I figured I can always trade the Beretta if I'm not pleased with it.

I shot a friends HK USP before. It was a nice gun but I think they're overpriced. IMO.
but if you're getting a deal on it, it's definitely a nice addition.

Welcome...If you shoot the Beretta well and got a good deal then kudos to you. I do happen to agree with othes that in time you WILL get the Glock 19. :)

Welcome. Don't worry about all the fanboys out there. Get whatever you shoot well with. I have a HK USP and a S&W 686 (357 mag). Both are great guns and I use both at IDPA matches. I like being able to shoot many different guns - I am no pro but I have fun!

At least I think I got a good deal. haha. It was the lowest price I could find on a new Beretta. I payed $536 for it + FFL fees.

I enjoy shooting too; which is also why I picked a 9mm...to try to save a couple dollars on ammo.

You can take a picture of it and post it in the firearms sale forum. Read the rules before you do. I sold a gun on there and it worked out great. Wecome to CGN and good luck selling your gun! :)
