The Beretta 85 is about the sexiest pistol being produced
I agree whole-heartedly!
Towards the end of the shooting season,,,
One of the members of a local gun club hosts a James Bond shootout.
It's his personal thing to do and it's all about grown adults having fun and acting a bit silly.
The men must be wearing tuxedos and the women must wear slinky casino dresses.
The guns have to be small secret agent style guns,,,
Lots of Beretta .22's, .25's, .32's, & .380's,,,
And a healthy dose of Walther PPK's,,,
As well as Bersa and Taurus.
Everyone shoots some movie inspired spy style scenarios,,,
But the prizes are for the best James Bond pose,,,
Not for the shooting itself.
Like I said,,,
It's a bit silly but lots of fun.
This year I'll be using my 85BB Cheetah.
She actually like the Cheetah but thought it was too big…that was even a side-by-side comparison and you’re correct in that they are very, very close in size to the Bersa.
I'm not surprised there,,,
I think the Cheetah is "bulkier" then the Thunder,,,
Especially if one happens to pick up the double-stack Model 84.
Fortunately for your wife,,,
The Bersa seems to perform as well as the Beretta.
I own them both and my experience is that they are equal in performance.
But hands down,,,
To me in any event,,,
The Beretta is the more aesthetically pleasing gun
