    I know it's "Gun Appreciation Day" on Jan 19th and I had ever intention of buying a gun in support on Friday. But not now.............








    Cause I got it today instead :supergrin: I had it a layaway with the intention get it out of layaway Friday but decided I did not want to put up with any "Chick Fil A" type crazy crowds.

    Beretta 96 Vertec in stainless. Being a Vertec it has a grip profile very 1911 like for a DA semi auto. Being a big fan of 1911s this was a selling point. Not intending to buy anything but using a lunch hour to stop by a gun store can really lead to things like this. It's used but in great shape.

    Only came with one mag, and being a "high capacity" evil handgun I thought getting more would be a expensive pain. Buy being how the factory mags only hold 11 rds and not carrying about a singe round difference I was able to fine these 4 mags for $90 shipped on GunBroker.

    10 rds mags but not bad for the price.

    Also ammo being crazy hard to find I got lucky and picked up this ammo at Wal-Mart today, $19.99 each.

    Being in stainless it will become my car gun replacing the non stainless gun I use now.

    Who has a gun like this, any input?

    I believe your Vertec is also hammer drop only, no safety right?

    I like that......:supergrin:

    I wish it was honestly but no it is a safety/decocker model.

    Plenty of Black Rifles at the stores today, all overpriced but the wall was full. Have not seen it full for week. AKs, ARs and AR10s even an AUG which was a surprise to see.

    Would love to have one of those with a smooth DAO trigger maybe around 6-7lbs. I loved the feel of them but hated the awful DA stroke on the first pull it was horrible.

    I already bought five and January is not even half way through yet. I think that I can forego the purchasing of another gun on 19th January.

    Your right DA is not great but SA is pretty nice. Not 1911 nice but nice none the less.
