Right at the Covid panic buying started I went to my local shop to witness the madness and they had these new on sale for $449. No one was even paying attention to them. Everyone was buying Glocks, AR's, and shotguns.

Very nice guns. I've had three of them since the 2010's.
Even back then they cost in the $600+ to over $700+ range.
In 1989 I bought a 92F and two boxes of 9mm FMJ ammo. Still have the receipt, $632 was the total. That's the equivalent of $1340 today.

They’re back in stock. I’m tempted, as I just handed down one of my Berettas to my oldest son when the pandemic started, so I’ve got a vacancy in the safe. This one is Italian, which is an added bonus these days. I hear the quality of the Tennessee guns is still a little spotty.
To anyone without a version of the 92, I can’t recommend it enough. I’ve been shooting these guns for thirty years, and I’ve yet to find a reason to rank anything else higher. The reliability and accuracy cannot be beat in an off-the-shelf combat pistol. Maybe equaled, but not beat. All it needs is a “D spring” and you're as well-armed as you can be with a pistol.
To those that call it heavy, I remember when it was the lightweight alternative to carrying a 5906 off-duty.

Yes I might like them a little. I only have four, counting the Centurion variants of the 92/96's. Although another couple might be prudent. As a combat handgun, I personally rank them equal to my P series Sigs.
