    They both are heavy guns, both shoot 9mm but I really have been wanting a Beretta 92 for some time now but in a way I feel like I am buying something similar to what I have.

    Any thoughts?

    I much prefer the 75. I am a cocked and locked fan and hate slide mounted safeties.
    Having said that, the Beretta is still a fine weapon...if YOU like it's features.

    Its not similar. Totally different design. If you want a Beretta 92, buy a Beretta.

    I think the 92FS is a must own. I own two of them, plus a M9, M9A1, and a 96F (police trade-in). Although they are a lilttle on the heavy side, they are excellent shooters.

    I just bought a 92 myself, since I collect military firearms, it filled a hole in my collection. That said, I started shooting it in IDPA competition and I LOVE this gun.

    It is right up there with my GLOCKs. Not quite on the same level, but very close, I think I am going to shoot it all of my IDPA events this year. It took awhile to get used to the manual of arms, but once I did that, it is a great gun. The double action first shot wasn't even near as much of an issue as I was afraid it would be.

    I got a 10rd mag collecting dust if you get the 92FS. I forgot to bring it with me when I traded in the 92FS for a new XD a couple months ago. Let me know...it'll be a pay it forward deal. I do for you and you do for someone else here.

    FWIW, my 92FS was a sweet shooter. It just wasn't as reliable as I needed it to be. It averaged one failure every 150-200 rds. I really think I just had a lemon though.

    You must have a Beretta because Mel Gibson favored one in Lethal Weapon.

    Recently added a 92FS INOX, and it's my favorite ever. 100% reliable, accurate, great trigger. Now I want to add a 75B, so I hope it's OK to have both.

    cz's are the cats meow, but if you are trying to justify having two similar weapons, then don't do it, but if you are trying to find that answer to the Inner why? then just embrace the call of wild and buy and own both. It is the nature of gun ownership and coveting. lol

    Looking at your sigline, I'd say it's time to think about a carbine or shotgun. Why limit yourself to pistols?

    You know you want one. Post picks when you bring it home.

    They really aren't mush similar than any other two 9mm pistols. If you try to justify the purchase, go right ahead. CZ is cast steel frame, M9/92 is alum alloy frame. CZ slide runs inside of frame, M9/92 runs out. Both grip economic and trigger are different. CZ has either SAO, DA/SA with safety, DA/SA with decocker. Beretta only have DA/SA and slide mount safety.

    So you see, there are plenty reasons to get another gun.

    Everytime I get to shoot a low-recoiling 92 or 96, and feel the silky smooth slide action, I forget that it's too big, too heavy, or has too big a grip, or has a goofy-mounted safety. Get it!

    Yes.

    The only time this should come into question is when you have one in every finish.

    Even then the answer is Yes.

    Problem Solved...
