    I'd take the Beretta in a heartbeat! (If the wife allowed it.)

    I'd take it in a heartbeat and the wife can get over it! Yeah, I am interested. Black or Stainless Steel? Let me know, we'll talk.

    Sounds like a great deal for the Beretta, around here they are almost $700 new. If you have the spare cash, go for it.

    no

    Has nothing to do with price. Good gun, just not on radar at present.

    I would take a Beretta 92 in a heart beat over ANY poly-striker specials...

    Hmmm... Did Mel Gibson shoot down a helicopter with it? If so, probably. If not, probably not. I don't think there's anything fatally wrong with the 92, and I've used them pretty extensively, but there are just better options out there for me at the same price point. That said, I wouldn't turn one down if it was offered to me free. :)
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
