Bwaaaaahahahahaha! I've been gone a sec and came to check out PS today. Hilarious how many old threads I've seen come back up and even took part in! I love it.

Something tells me ol' fuego is a military man. I swear, I have NEVER heard another shooter say the m9 was the ONLY improvement over the P35. I hope I'm wrong, though. It'll only add to alabaster's "odd experience list".

IMHO, the BHP is arguably one of the finest 9millies ever. Right up there with the CZ75. The Beretta gets passed right over. I understand the idea that the military adopted it, but daaaaaaaaaamn. Cracked slides, almost comedic grip circumference, absurdly loooong trigger reach. I know very few shooters who honestly do well with a 92. Even the safety was a Euro-failure to alabaster. I mean, even Taurus knew to put it on the frame, for goodness sake! Okay, enough Beretta hating, I'm sorry. To each his own. If alabaster is voting for a metal framed 9mm though, he's going for a CZ or a BHP.

Hey Al, while you're correct about the Army version, Beretta did make the original with a frame mounted safety and no hammer drop.

retDAC, thanks for the info. I was unaware of that. I was told they made it like that and in a full-auto version with a frame mounted safety/select lever, but I've never seen one and have not confirmed it to be true. There's a lot I don't know apparently.

I just googled it and have now seen both assuming the pics are real, which I have no reason to believe otherwise. The Machine pistol was a 93R, which I remember reading about in a pistol history book. I still have yet to see one in person, but it sounds kewl to me!

Well Alabaster maybe if you'd get off that couch once in a while you'd have seen a Beretta 93R in person by now!

Yeah I've been at the range when one was being fired, got to hold but not shoot it for myself.

Teehee. I wish that was the case. THat's when I lived in FL. I worked 70+hrs a week then, but when I eas off I was either on the couch or riding my bike all over the Tampa area. Nowadays I spend almost every waking minute trying to get BACK to Florida, but almost never get to be on the couch. My wife n Roxy(My dog in that pic) on the other hand, well....

Look what you did. You went n made me all self conscious and defensive.

Well given the lack of traffic on this board you sure can't feel like I embarrassed you in front of anything like a crowd!
