Hey all,

Just a post to gloat about my two newest firearm purchases. I've loved the Beretta 92 series for many years and while I have trained and used them with nothing but great experiences I had never owned one. Well, two weeks ago I bought a brand new M9 and the next day a friend called offering a LNIB 92 for $350 so I had no choice but to jump on it. I picked them up a few days ago and here are the results. Sorry for the crappy pictures, I'll get some better ones soon. I have plans to pick up two D springs for them and a Blade-Tech holster, oh, and of course lots of mags. I'm very happy with them and can't wait to put them through their paces this weekend in Tucson with my Dad.

Congrats on the purchases! Those are a fine pair of pistols you have there! You certainly can't go wrong with a LNIB 92FS for only $350.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. Glenn, I'm actually in Irvine right now. Any decent place to shoot around here? I'm here a few times a month.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. Glenn, I'm actually in Irvine right now. Any decent place to shoot around here? I'm here a few times a month.

My indoor range of choice is On Target Range in Laguna Niguel, which is about 15 minutes south of Irvine. Here's the contact info:

On Target Range
27692 Camino Capistrano
Laguna Niguel, CA 92677
tel: (949) 348-0352

Take the 5 South, exit on Avery Parkway, turn right after you exit, turn right onto Camino Capistrano, and it'll be on your right side about a mile or so down. I've had only good experiences every time that I have shot there. It does get busy on the weekends, though, so be forewarned. Have fun!

Dual wielding? That's the only way to do it! Just channel your inner action hero. :D :38: :2guns:

Very nice! I just picked up an Italian 92FS this last weekend, too bad i wont get to touch it until the 1st. But if you want hit me up there is a guy selling some nice parts for a custom look for your 92's.. I just picked up the D spring, the mainspring cap that's flat with no lanyard loop, an SGS style compensator from Ric Gandy, The 92fs i picked up was made in 1985 so i am swapping out all of the internal parts for new ones, leaving the barrel for now.. Here is what I'm going for.

Thanks again for the comments! It is a regular 92FS but the flash makes the frame look lighter than the slide assembly. Cool idea, SoCalSig. I've never shot a compensated 92 but I'm sure the recoil is next to nothing between the wait, ports and caliber.

I was lucky enough to take the chance on a Taurus PT92 (Brazilian Beretta clone) and now i know why everyone says its an awesome shooter!

Love Berettas, but apart from the itallian-style slotted screws on the grip, these look identical to me. You really don't need two Berettas that look that similiar to one another, so go ahead and box it back up and I'll do you a solid by taking it off your hands for what you paid.

Nice pair of Beretta's OP... and especially for getting one for $350.00. I got mine used for $450.00 and did some two tone touch ups... I just love how these guns handle the 9mm. It's just as accurate and easy to shoot as my 1911 9mm.

Don't forget that you need to practice dual drawing, dual reloading, and cartwheels. :cool2:

Nice Berettas, guys! I use a 1911 for three gun and IDPA but plan on giving these a go around in the coming months. I also like how they compliments my P.38. My girlfriend's dad has a 92S, so hopefully next time I see him we can get a little range time in and compare them. Any recommendations for OD grips other than the houge wraparounds?

You could grab a set of aluminum grips and i can Cerakote them for you :)

Check out wicked grips, they have some craziness for the 92's: http://wickedgrips.com/wicked-grips-for-sale/aluminum-graphic-grips/beretta-92fs/
