I think a lot of the Beretta hate stems from it replacing the 1911 as the Army's sidearm. The 92 is a terrific gun in its own right, but nobody is going to be happy with a legend getting replaced. To put it in sports terms, the Beretta 92 is the Steve Young to the 1911's Joe Montana. I know some Niner fans that are still pretty steamed about that.
