An adequate cover garment is needed for concealment and I'm good to go. I do like the Beretta. Mine is the Brigadier.

    Just picked up one of these the other day. I appreciate all the input on here about how to carry it. I to will be looking at the Galco holsters, I like the angle on the Combat Master. But first I gotta find some cheap ammo to go break it in. Yeah sure cheap 9mm haven't seen any in a while.

    I Carry my 92fs (same size) in very good holster (Alessi) with a thick shark-skin belt and most important for me: a pair of Perry's Suspenders, adjusted so that half the weight of gun is taken by shoulders.

    These are great suspenders, hook in a second to your belt and can be found here: Welcome to the Perry Suspenders eStore

    These make all the difference in the world CCWing a full-size gun. Mine conceals well under an open leather vest. Feels very comfortable.

    This is probably kind of late for the OP, but I agree that if you dress around the gun you can conceal almost any sidearm if you're willing to do what it takes. I also heartily second the recommendation for the Perry suspenders! I find it pretty hilarious after years of making fun of my dad for his suspenders that I finally bought a pair of my own. But they really do help support a gun belt. I got the kind that clips under the belt, not to the pants, and they work very well. You can wear your belt a bit looser too without feeling like your pants are gonna fall down.

    I am easily able to conceal my 92A1 when wearing a poncho.

    Beretta has been in business something like 400 YEARS! Can you believe that? And as a gunmaker all that time.

    They make really good looking and very well made guns. My 92FS is a "Ghost" (some Inox came out about 10 years ago with Beretta-logo gray grips and has stainless controls; known as the "Ghost")



    Had it about 2 yrs, never once has it had failure to fire, load, extract - zero malfunctions on any ammo.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Now I just bought this one in .25 Cal. I wanted a teeny gun. Used 1994, works great. I have bad hands and while I can Carry and shoot some other low-recoil guns, this is now another. Or it can be a "running-to-the-store" gun. Besides, couldn't resist, it's cute - well engineered, I like the style; the barrel pops-up, you load a round in it, put in loaded mag, and are set to go, no need to rack the slide. Shoots DA/SA, my favorite action, no need to put the safety on. Just point and shoot. It's really small but easy to shoot unlike some tiny guns, fits immediately perfect in the hand, no groping for a good handhold.

    Exactly! And you can also avoid pulling your belt so tight to keep your pants up you can barely breathe. Who needs it. Perry's Suspenders at $15/pair or thereabouts are the ticket. You can also get very strong ones, made for construction guys who carry lots of tools on their belts. But the standard strength work fine for me. They look good too!

    I think there are much smaller and easier/more comfortable guns to conceal on the market that would probably suit your needs. If you WANT to carry something that big then that is your choice but I just can't help thinking that after doing it for a couple weeks you will be looking for a new CC piece.

    detective, nice guns there. I have a 96fs duotone on layaway. I really like the way that tomcat looks. The bobcat version has caught my eyes.

    I carried a 92 FS while serving in the military. I preferred a shoulder holster for most duties. I CC a Glock 22 during cold weather and if I can hide that, a 92 should be cake. If you dress appropriately and wear a good belt and holster you can carry anything comfortably

    I CCW it about 3 or 4 times a week, alternating with others. Been that way for 2 years. It's OK, really, gun feels light the way I have secondary gear to go with it.
    See, it shoots great, so it's worth it. I want something I can shoot accurately, get out and on target quickly, and be on target with fast, multiple shots - in likely the worst situation of my life if IT ever happens - and one I can trust not to screw up. My 92fs has all that, hell why not have it on hand IF... a good hunk of the time.

    Doesn't it feel strange wearing a belt and suspenders? I thought it was a one or the other type deal...

    You know, oddly, the weight of the Beretta 92A1 and extra mag I carry hasn't bothered me a whole ton, but if I carry my Shield the day after carrying the Beretta, suddenly the little guns are zero trouble. I don't always carry my Beretta, but it's nice to carry something every now and then that really makes you appreciate your smaller guns.
