Default Beretta Model 87 Cheetah .22 LR

Anybody own one of these and what can you tell me about it? Looks like a pretty sweet short bbl .22 auto. Pricey though, aren't they?

Gave one to my wife for Valentine's day.

She really likes it. I had her try a Sig Mosquito and Walther P22, but she liked the grip, weight, and overall feel of the 87 better. She also liked the sights and found target acquisition easy.

It is accurate for a pocket gun (though a little big) and very easy to shoot. We almost went through an entire brick the first time out taking turns naming targets.

If we were living in a different day and age it would be a great backpacking plinker.

I personally think it is a sexy little gun.
