sledjockey, I own a Beretta 92a1 just want a smaller 9mm to carry everyday. Yes you are right the Beretta 92a1 when the SHTF is what I will have and the Glock 19 would go to my son at that time. Also to go to the range I want my son to be able to handle it better then the big Beretta 92a1 which weights a lot for a 15 year old. He is strong but like this gun for carry and for the range for the son.
The Beretta 92a1 I have owned for over 15 years with zero problems.
