    Beretta 92 Nut!

    I decided to shift my deposit from the full rail Springfield TRP Operator 1911 to another Beretta compact 92FS...

    Everyone here knows I am a 92 fanatic. I have 6 different variants prior to today... And, I have been thinking about it the past couple of days while this second 92FS compact was inbound to my local shop...

    I already have a 1911 Springfield Custom Shop 9mm Full Rail Operator (which is not a standard production Springfield, but essentially like a 9mm Professional with a full rail). I had been wanting the TRP version in 45 ACP - but I've been having second thoughts...

    It (the operator) sorta popped up outta no where after 2 years of looking, and it is a fairly expensive gun. After I pay for new sights and a trigger job, it was gonna be pushing $2k with the shipping price to send the gun off... I had been comparing all that to a chance at another Compact 92FS, which haven't been imported in over 10 years....

    As the 92 platform is my all time fav, and the most comfortable gun in my hands... I shifted the money and got the Beretta.... Luckily, the shop let me do it... Also, I haven't been as "into" 1911s lately, because of my Beretta interests...

    So, now I have 2 Beretta 92 compacts, and 7 different 92s total... Unless something else unforseen pops up (some other strange or new variant), this is probably the last 92 I'll get... I'm not a fan of the Inox models - I only like Berettas in black for some strange reason...

    Here is a quick picture. When I get a chance, I'll take a group photo on my red background :)

    Variety is the spice of life. I just bought a sig 226 and have put in my paper work for a sound suppressor

    The fact that I already have this is what allowed me to do it in good conscience...

    A very small batch has come into the USA for now. Buds was the only ones to have them, but now they are popping up here and there...

    Word is that they MIGHT be part of an order a foreign military ordered, and then cancelled. Or, maybe Beretta is bringing them back.

    Several people, including my local dealer, contacted Beretta directly in the past few weeks - multiple people in Beretta claims that they don't exist or no nothing about it... Nothing said at Shot Show either... so, if you find one, better get it now...

    They may become regular stock - but for now, that doesn't seem likely...

    It's like buying watches. You should purchase what makes you smile.

    Anything less will result in regret.

    Enjoy your Berettas!

    I don't know if I have any real gun selling regrets, but if I had to pick one, it would likely be my 92 Custom Carry, which is a variant of the 92C.

    So you already had one 92 compact and decided to get another vs the TRP OP?

    Nuts, no, this makes perrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrfect sense.

    Nice collection. Now just imagine you live in Connecticut like I do and the Bill currently in the CT State House Passes. You will have to turn over all your magazines that hold more than ten rounds by July 1 or face a Felony charge.
