View Full Version : Beretta 92FS Inox

Picked up my Beretta 92FS Inox yesterday from Valykrie Arms.

Took it home, marveled at its beauty, and then went to work. I replaced polymer guide rod with Stainless Steel one from Steve Bedair (http://guiderod.com/index.html). Fantastic service by the way. Very affordable, beautifully made, quick turnaround, and very nicely packaged for delivery. I also replaced the factory hammer spring with a 'D' model spring, which signicantly lightened the Double-action pull. Managed to scratch up the hammer spring cap a bit trying to get the roll pin back in, which I'm sure is a rookie mistake. Oh well, live and learn.

Spent a a few minutes going over the features, basic operation, and safety with my wife and a couple of hours covering basic gun safety with my kids and letting them see and touch it before locking it up in the safe. Told them that if they ever want to see or touch the gun to let me know. Otherwise it's 1) Stop, 2)Don't touch, 3) Leave the area, and 4)Tell an adult.

We don't have any live ammo in the house yet (picking some up today), but I'm still treating it as if we do. No muzzles on people, no fingers on triggers, pistol gets locked up in the safe when not in use. Having the snap caps to practice with is great. My son got to fumble around with trying load a magazine and we played a fun game called 'Is it loaded?' Eventually he caught on that the correct answer is always "yes".

After they get out of Jail they deserve a good meal. Feed it some Ammo!

Good on you teaching the four rules of guns for kids. I taught my kids and would, and still do, randomly test them. Then we go get an ice cream if they get them all correct. They don't get ice cream anymore though.

I use:
1. Stop
2. Don't touch
3. Run away
4. Tell an adult
