EVER SINCE I THE VERY FIRST TIME I LAID EYES ON ONE, I WANTED THE BERETTA 92FS.
This is the same sidearm as the M9, the handgun that aggressive American forces carry today. Seven days ago, I got a text from a friend on some gun nut forum with a post for them being back! Two days only. This Sunday October 4th, 10am until 12pm. Brand new, in the box Beretta 92FS9mm Beretta, with 3 Hi-Cap mags, box, papers and gun safe. First come, first served, Dave’s Weapon Store, inside the mall next to the burnt down McDonalds. They will not last long with all these early birds. These are brand new guns, not used and not reconditioned. New New guns. If you missed out last time, don’t miss this time around.
So I made the 100 mile drive down to Yuma and plunked down my 600 bucks and got the police special, 3 mags manual the obligatory Berettta bicycle lock, and a Beretta 92fs9mm handgun in a cardboard box. Yup, it was an old recycled cardboard box. 3 magazines though, I could load up almost a whole box of ammo into those 15 rounders.
The first thing I did was, after studying the manual like a man, was to disassemble the gun, wipe out the gun grease, ran a patch down the barrel, and lightly oiled the workings and slide. Thankfully, the Beretta comes undone easily and intuitively. There is no critical lining up or trigger pull involved. Push the takedown button and flip the lever slide forward and the slide is separated from the frame. There are some plastic parts. The trigger, and the hammer are plastic, although one can’t really notice with casual observation.
