    I just started carrying a Beretta 9000S .40

    Anyone have anything good or bad to say about the 9000S? I've only fired 100 rounds thru it, but it seems very solid to me and fits my med-large hands perfectly.

    The slide is to thin (from bottom to top) making malfunction clearing drills tough, its a little bulky for its class and I don't believe its in production anymore so parts and accessories might be tough to get.
    On the flip side, Beretta builds a quality product.

    I bought this used gun locally face-to-face for $225. The seller told me Beretta factory techs rebuilt/replaced the faulty extractor after a few hundred rounds and still has less than 1000 rounds thru it. It came with a $60 pocket holster, 4 mags, one box of FMJ ammo and the original box. It looks like new and functions perfect. I guess if a part breaks I could buy another 9000S just for parts.

    You are right, however, that it is a little bulky so I'll use it for carry during the winter months when I wear more clothing.

    Although I don't carry it much anymore, I have a Beretta 9000S in 9mm...I have/had no problems with it. I took one of my pistol SD classes with it, and it performed very well.
    It is a little bulky when compared to my Kimber, but I do like the weapon.

    The safety leaves a little to be desired...OMO.
