Hi, it is I, the pettiest of gun owners

#1 Post by KlownKannon » Mon Jun 18, 2018 8:44 pm

A while back I bemoaned the fact that the Beretta M9A3 wasn't available in black.....I think it was Senorgrand who pointed out that I was eminently qualified to change that via the magic of Duracoat....well, because of my vanity I didn't buy one of the FDE M9A3s and do what had to be done. I wanted Beretta to release one in black to show that they cared. I'm not sure if they care buuuuuuut (click the linky thing, please).

I know, right? I'm not a huge fan of the ergos of the Vertec but it comes with a rubber grip plus a whole host of other features that I want. My 92 is more or less property of the girlfriend but I think I could sell her on ditching the 92 in favor of this.

For some reason, I haven't even checked the fit to see if the Berettas will go in. My feeling is, they won't.

/gonna go try.

Aiiiiiiiii! Not sure if I'm stretching the holsters but....my Berettas fit! Not sure what a rail on an M9A3 would do though.

Get a pair and find out! I don't think one will do. Really need to see the balance and weight distribution within the confines of said holster ultra superfinuous

Eees beeyootiful.

If I buy another center fire semi auto pistol, it will be a Beretta in nine. A black one.

I've actually thought about that! I'm gonna let her get her mitts on an A3 and let her pick.

/should get both

I shot Marlene's 92 and it seems nice.

But take one to an action range and the RO's will have arguments over what condition it is in at any given time..

I love the look of that A3. No way I could justify getting yet another Beretta, but I hope you did get it.

Methinks those are Beretta 84 pistolas in that picture. They look just like mine. Or maybe 92FSs? Not sure.

Ferner made pistols, their not made in the US of A? Don't remember, is your shoulder holster rig horizontal or vertical?

Close enough. Just add sunglasses and trench coat.

Beretta 92 style is iconic. The 84 looks exactly the same, just smaller.
