    My Sister has taste.

    I am not sure if I can post it here or in the Carry & Discussion board, but my sister is starting to appreciate the 2nd Amendment.

    She came by to visit. Somehow, one way or another, we got to talking. She surprised me when she said, "I want a Beretta!" The fact that she knew Beretta by its name was surprising enough. I mean, this girl can't even tell what brand her Tv or computer is. Anyway, I showed her my Beretta 96 and 85. She really liked the 96, BUT with PINK grips. Hey, if thats what she wants, I guess.....

    She is not into carrying it, which I think will change sooner or later, but she mainly wants it for home defense. We went into detail on how semi-auto pistol works, how the trigger mechanism works, and of course the basic rules on gun safety. Told she is free to come by and handle my empty guns. When she feels ready, we'll go to the range and see if she truly wants a Beretta 96.

    I heard of a story of a girl with a fluorescent pink Beretta which she drew on a bad guy. He laughed so hard he went down and she was able to get away without firing a shot.

    OK. I made that up, but hey, you need to key in on whatever gets her interested in her personal safety.

    Seriously, if ANY woman has the guts to draw down on an assailant, she's already won the fight. If she has to shoot, all the better!

    Would she settle for a pink Glock?

    With Duracoat you can do almost anything. Here is a pink Glock that somebody created:



    But seriously, I think that a Beretta 92 or 96 is a little large for a woman to conceal. However, the new Beretta PX4 compact might be a real winner for her to CCW:

    That nlooks like a Pepto Bismo Glock!!
    He also said she isn't going to carry it, so a heavier gun like the 96 would be a great choice to learn on. I have a Italian made 92F that I love, doesn't get shot much, but it is one of my favorites. You are a good brother.

    Hey, it would be easy to identify your (pink) gun in a pile. Also easy to identify to police if it gets stolen.

    Yeah, like I said before, she is just planning on keeping the pistol for home defense. The Beretta 96 would be a good, decent choice. Heck, a Beretta 90-two in .40S&W would be better. Lighter frame and material all around. When the time comes for when she feels she is ready to carry concealed (which is inevitable), then we will shop around for a more compact pistol. I think thats when she'll want a Px4 Compact, or an XD-Compact. But if she starts leaning over to a 1911 Champion or Micro, I can't promise that I'll stop her.

    BTW, yes she is single and will remain so until she is 21. OOOOH, how do you feel now?

    I have a 92FS and I like it a lot, but note a lot of people find the grip too large. Make sure she shoots it before she makes up her mind.

    I spend a bit of time on HKPro, and it sounds like the new HK P30 has a very ergonomic grip, adjustable backstraps and has been reported as a very soft shooter and has a light rail. Might be worth looking into.

    I think that gun would be safe from theft.

    did she tell you how she first heard of Beretta or why that was her choice? just curious. I am glad you have the opportunity to educate a family member on firearms...
