    So much for not buying a pistol while on vacation....

    Always wanted a Beretta 92fs and a gun tickled by Wayne Novak's shop... Now i have both!

    Depending on how worn the finish is in person, it may get the birdsong treatment...

    It has a Bar-Sto barrel fitted...

    Any suggestions on what weight bullet to shoot? Whats the "standard" 9mm round?

    Lots of choices in the 9mm. It should shoot great with any bullet weight.

    The fun part will be firing different rounds to find out which one the barrel shoots the best.

    I shoot 115 and 124gr out of my Beretta, both work great and are my reloads.

    I would say for target (planking) 115 works great.

    That's an intersting piece. Wonder if Novak did the trigger job too? I'd love to see how that mutha shoots.

    What are those grips? They look just like my Horned Lizards, but with the Novak medallion.

    Outstanding acquisition!

    Pretty gun. Love my 92FS! Only mod done is a new hammer. Yours looks like it'd shoot circles around mine.
