Second retarded question: why would anyone ever rack a slide overhand instead of slingshot?

I find it more comfortable/natural to slingshot...maybe I've watched too many action movies or my hands/wrists are just retarded.

I've always been a fan of the 92FS, if for no other reason than Riggs and Lethal Weapon viewing during my formative years.


I have a (hurr) Taurus PT100 in .40 which has been great but I want a Beretta in 9mm and of the Riggs' era. Is there any particular sub model or designation I should look for or avoid?

I feel you are obliged to only shot cop killa bullets out of this gun when you get it.

I don't think there's anything too complicated about Riggs' gun; I would just look for a straight 92F.

O great Beretta thread, if I am seriously considering getting some sort of Cheetah, and if I am fairly certain I have it narrowed down to either the 84 or 85, should I go for the single stack or double stack?

The 84 is identical in dimension to the CZ 82. If you want thinner to avoid buying something so similar, then the 85 would be your option.

Well then, I think that answers that.

Or the Beretta thread. You unworthy bastard.

So just FYI, I've got a BM59 (without a giggle switch, of course) headed my way.



Along the lines of Beretta rifles, here is a thing I found on gunbroker that someone should totally buy.

Question about the 70 series...the one I posted had a 1911 style safety, which I get, but how the hell does the safety on one like this work? A button safety? Button decocker?

SOLD! (well, pending funds)

Part of me will miss this gun, part of me says good riddance. On one hand it's a .380, I dislike having to buy another caliber for a range toy, I have better guns for carry, I really need money instead. On the other hand it fits my hand perfectly, points naturally and I love its looks.

If it were in .22 I would never let it go.

Your loss is my gain (and my second Beretta)!

Funds sent

This will be my first gun in .380, but given that I currently own handguns in .32 ACP, 7.65mm Longue, 9x18mm, 9x19mm, .45 ACP, 7.62 tok, .38 Special, .44 Magnum, and will soon have one in .357 Magnum, a variety of ammo for range toys isn't a big deal. I posted a while back about how I wanted one, and now I will...I seriously need to stop buying guns. A PCS to a foreign country can't come soon enough.

I am thinking about snagging a 9mm CX4 (if I can find one. Everywhere I have checked it sold out so far) and would love some feedback from anyone who has experience with it.

I am pretty much just planning on using it for plinking, and the feedback that I have been able to find so far has all been extremely positive, just want to get a Goon opinion before dropping $900 on a pistol caliber carbine.

They're pretty sweet:



Ergos are great, takedown is a breeze, shoots great, and pistol caliber carbines are just awesome.

iyaayas01 is a pretty cool dude. Three STANAGs were crammed into my mailbox today after a long trip from Alaska.

Haha, glad you got them...I mailed them considerably later than I said I would, which explains some of the delay, but I was worried they were going to get flagged by USPS since I just dropped them in the mailbox instead of going inside; guess three STANAGs don't weigh more than 13 ounces.

Hey Beretta thread, just wanted to pop in to say that I qual'd today and clapped out M9s are some of the worst guns on the face of the planet. Think every negative adjective you can think of to describe a trigger, and that basically describes the trigger on that particular gun.

Like seriously someone send me a 92D or something to redeem Berettas for me because everything about the M9 is awful (except for the hard use finish wear, that was pretty cool I guess.)

Just saying that CATM student M9's are easily the worst M9's I've used in the US military. Don't judge that weapon by them. Clapped out doesn't even begin to describe them.

I wasn't shooting a CATM weapon, since I'm deploying soon I drew the weapon I'm deploying with from LRS and shot with that so the CATM dudes could do the pre-deployment inspection on it while I was there (which basically consisted of some SrA going "yup, that sure is a gun" and then writing the serial down. I don't think he even did a function check.)

It was still pretty clapped out but yeah, wasn't nearly as bad as some of the student guns. A couple were literally falling apart.

You should probably lock your guns up when you are on ambien. That stuff is not good.

Not sure if it makes it better or worse that he's deployed, haha.

And despite very explicit threats of violence from the CATM guys running my qual class prior to coming out here someone in it with me did exactly that (didn't reengage the takedown lever).

9x19 Cx4s are oodles of fun, doubly so with a red dot.

Also you can pretend to go kill Cylons with one:

Ah ok, Cx4 owners tell us is the take down and cleaning process a pain in the rear end?

Takedown is incredibly easy, it's blowback 9mm so I'm sure if you want to get it completely spotless it would be a pain in the rear end but this is a just a fun gun for me so it gets the "boresnake and wipe down after every range trip, blast it out with a solvent every once in a while, reapply lube, call it good" treatment.
