Thanks guys

TxFlyFish - Not sure if I'll get a BM model, not overly fond of them. Plus they are hard to find and rather costly.

Wow - that is just drop-dead gorgeous. I'm a sucker for the lines of Berettas anyway - my wife refers to my 92 Inox as my "mistress." Congrats from a very jealous man.

I really like the frame mount vs the slide mount for the safety.

My shop sells the 92FS, 92A1, and the M9, they are all slide mount.

Cheers!

Gorgeous.

I also notice that most of your pics are taken so that the guns are at an odd angle, sometimes almost upside down. Is that so people know you are Down Under?

I just baught a 92fs... If I would have known they had a steel one, I so would have bought it. Congrats on a great gun. Such a better finish imo. For one you won't notice any dings or chips off the black coating.

Thanks mate

The Steel I's have been discontinued I believe and are rather hard to get, they also go for a premium.

Those are very good pictures of a very good looking gun.
You must be a photographer or something close to that line of work. The lighting is fantastic - soft but just rightbamount.

I will try, but without a studio I don't think I could come close to a shot like that even with my big Canon DSLR.

Thanks buddy

I've started to get more seriously into photography over the last year and picked up a Canon 7D and 5D plus a few lens and speedlights.

These shots where on the back table one night using the 7D and two off camera flashes bouncing the light off the ceiling. A little bit of fiddling until I had the settings right plus a little tweaking in lightroom afterward

Still have a few areas I want to improve on with them, next time I'll use some drop sheets around the area as the light bounce's off the timber blinds and gave some of the shots a reddish hue.

Looks like this one was made in 2005. Not bad, spent a few years in storage

You're killing me.

I've been wanting the Steel (w/wood grips) for a long time now.

Mind me asking the price & where you were able to find it?

EDIT: NVM on the price, I see $1650 usd
