    Thumbs up Yet another Aquisition

    Yup, I'm at it again! <ducking from Chris' and QKs backhanders> Just kidding guys
    It was one of those "ya had to be there" deals. I was at the store last night, when a small PD trade came in. A few 92Fs and a couple of 92F Compacts, 9 mm guns, ALL with working LaserMax lasers in them.
    I got this one, for 325.00 with the Lasermax installed in the recoil rod assy. It was a bit scrtvhed up, but with a little help of Alumablack and Perma Blue, it looks VERY NICE. Notice the button for the Lasermax on the takedown lever. They came with 3 hi cap mags as well.
    Can't wait til I try this one out as well as that Ruger

    The price sounds rediculously cheap, (it was a great price before the discount) but after my discount that I get, it WAS rediculously cheap LOL. I hope, based on my purchase, the other Forumites will keep their eyes open for these kind of deals that pop up at their local gun shops. These PD trades are GREAT deals, and most are mostly carry wear, rather than the worn out guns. A little touchup, and you can have a good lookin shootin iron.. Keep your eyes open for these deals ladies and gents

    Well function beats external looks every time, where surface wear is concerned.

    Bob - looks like a great find - been a good month eh, except for the ol' pocket book!

    Oh my!! Yes Chris.. it HAS been difficult on the wallet LOL
    I just hope my wife doesn't look in the safe. (she does that from time to time out of curiosity)
    This deal was too good to pass up.

    You know the best ploy for that Bob - when ''something'' seemingly new is spotted??

    "But hon - that has been at the back for (insert time span here) - I only just brought it to the front". Then try and prevent obvious elongation of the nasal proboscis!

    Great find....my first Beretta was (is) an Italian-made 92F Compact. I love the gun.

    Sweet. I found a deal like that recently on a P228. Couldn't pass it up.

    No Backhand From Me

    Oh...you think I'm going to backhand you for stealing a nice Beretta FOR LESS than the retail cost of the internal laser...all by itself...without the doggone firearm.
    Damn that was a GREAT DEAL!
    You Done Good CLASS3...real good!

    BTW The Beretta LaserMax retails for $399.00
    So...I think you got the pistol tossed in for nothing on that deal.

    Ya beat me to it, QKShooter, You can't even find a new lasermax setup for what those guns cost, outstanding find! How do you like the lasermax, btw?
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

    Hi Tater
    I have a 92F with the Lasermax as well as this 92F Compact. They (the Lasermax) work well, BUT they eat up batteries like going out of style. LOL...I really bought the guns cuz they seem to be a good "trade Bait" item. I'm a huge fan of night sights instead of the laser, but to each his own preference. Kinda cool though, as the laser may just deter the BG from becoming more aggressive. (the red dot on the CM of his body, and you ordering him to look at his chest area to see that dot)

    Not sure what Me SPD have switched to. These guns were from a small PD in NH, way up north. They went to Sig 229s in 40 cal.
