Just picked up the newer Baretta 92A1 w/ rail 9mm. Seems to be pretty much a std 92 with a few mods and the rail which I wanted. Anyone shooting one much? I am using it primarily to compete with some Feds at my range who play poker shooting cards with their service Barettas and invited me to join their small shooting group one day. Their Baretta's and ammo are free courtesy of us.

:signs1242cn: That said, it's a great gun. The rear sight is quite wide, it's more of a combat sight than a target sight. Pay lots of attention to the sights and you'll do well.Congrat's on the Beretta! You've made a great choice.

I shot it in on my basement range tonight - first at 10 yds for 5 shots and 3 holes touched and then at 20 yds. At 34 ozs it's a powder puff on recoil and very comfortable for a steady aim. Yes - on the sight - definitely combat. The rear sight is wide and a dovetail.

I got a couple ground squirrels with my 92fs this morning. :roflmao3[1]:
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

Good luck on the coyote. I am lucky to get the close ones with a 11-87 because they never stop...

I just found out the Brazilian made Taurus (Taurus purchased factory from Baretta) isn't the same as the Italian made 92A1 or other european made 92s. One of my local gun stores (not where I bought mine) paid for some hardness testing because of a bet that they were identical. The other guy found out they aren't quite the same metallurgy. I thought they basically spec'd the same but am now glad I went with the Baretta. He says the metallurgy difference will show up with lots of shooting. Anyone else heard this? I guess you get what you pay for. I thought about the Taurus because it was stainless for $100 less.
