Beretta No 2

2nd Beretta for the week and likely the last for some time.

A Beretta 92fs Competition



I have another one of these that I bought used in good condition a number of years ago and have not seen another for sale until this one which is brand new and had been in storage with Beretta for some time.
I plan on selling my first one since its only in reasonable condition and keeping this new one for the collection .

Seriously, those are gorgeous pistols. Congrats.

Being a Beretta man, that really Cranks My Chain!
I'd love to shoot one!

Very nice.

I have to ask as I just bought a 92fs and see the thumb groove, do you have to move the gun in your hand to reload it? I find the magazine release is at a position where I don't get much pressure from my thumb to release the magazine.

Is that normal?

Mercy - on this one with the timber grips I have to move it to get to the release. On a standard model not so much though I do have long fingers

Most people say they have to shift it slightly, my thumb rests on it but sideways and I can't press down with the end of my thumb that way.

Nice gun though!
