    My Beretta "Ghost"

    Recent Purchase - Beretta "Ghost"



    Called "The Ghost" because it's a 92FS INOX (Stainles + Alloy) with the same for all external controls and internal parts - recent INOX have black polymer controls. Plus it has original grey wraparound grips with Beretta stamp. Sort of rare, a Beretta Ghost - though at the time of purchase I didn't know it.

    I CCW this gun a lot - in spite of the size does not feel heavy and I use Perry Suspenders (GREAT, take a look online) to make it pretty comfortable. But out of my Alessi OWB holster ("Dept of Justice") it draws really quickly and the big hilt makes it easy to get to under clothing. I wear it under an open vest. Conceals OK. Feels great in the hand.

    Shoots with wicked accuracy and to date has had no stoppages of any kind. It shoots like a .22 almost, really weird feel the absence of recoil - a minor "bump" at most. (And most welcome sensation. Fast and accurate follow-shots are a snap).

    These guns have legend-reliability. Beretta USA's have average reliability of 17,500 rounds with no stoppages (the test ends at that point) and the military put these through tests: 10 shooters firing them: 168,000 rounds with no stoppages, (test ended at that number). As you know, as the M9, these are US Service Pistols for the Military. So, it field-strips in a second and the S. Steel internals make it a wipe with a cloth to clean. 5 min. for a thorough cleaning.

    (and I love the look, all I need is a Ferrari).

    That is sweet. I'm a fan of the Beretta 92FS myself. Your Inox looks mighty nice.

    Such good looking pistols, and they shoot well too. Plan on buying my own someday. For now I'll just keep shooting my bro-in-laws when I can.

    Beretta makes beautiful guns. I love my Cougar, although if the 92 is as thick as the Cougar it's hard to imagine concealing it well. The 92 was the first gun I ever shot, in boot camp, and I remember being similarly impressed by the low recoil you mention.

    Had an FS in my hand just last week. Could not believe how smooth the slide draws on them. Ended up buying a S&W 1911 but this is on my list as the next buy.
    Beautiful gun, Enjoy.

    Nice pick up, I've had one on my list for a while but always seem to end up buying something else.

    A very nice looking pistol. The 92's are rock solid.

    I love my Beretta 92FS. It's the only gun I've ever sold and bought back. I'll NEVER sell it again.

    I'm always tempted to try and carry it. May have to get an OWB rig and try it out with winter clothing to aid concealment.

    Right now, all I have is an M12 holster that I picked up for fun value because it is the US issue holster. Not suitable for CCW, though.

    Try Perry Suspenders for any carry that feels weighty to you. I have several different types but the "original" works fine. Welcome to the Perry Suspenders eStore


    This is the holster I bought for it. Alessi makes fine handmade holsters:

    Alessi Holsters DOJ Standard Holster for Beretta Guns: DOJ Standard Beretta Alessi Gun Holsters

    Made OWB to ride ON the hip and is very comfortable. Holster curves out on the inside front so it fits right on the rising side of the hip bone. Has two slots for the belt which go in the pants loop also - making the holster and gun rock steady and yet holds the gun close to the body and pretty high. Conceals best under open jacket, suitcoat, vest, button-up sweater etc.

    Not difficult to do. I don't carry mine often but when I do it carrys comfortably and stays out of sight in a Galco Combat Master under an overshirt or jacket.
