Not that the Beretta 92, 92FS and so on weren't great 9s but honestly I really think I'd rather not bother with Berettas or imitations thereof anymore. The full-sized 9mm handgun market is incredibly fucking competitive.Off-topic gunsperging, but Taurus are actually getting their act together these days, at lest for the stuff that comes into (and, increasingly, is made in) this country. I can't speak to whatever stays back in Brazil, but Taurus is starting to reclaim it's reputation to some extent. They're still inexpensive, lower-end firearms, but they're not so much the suicide machines they used to be back in the Taurus Millennium days.
I've actually toyed with the idea of picking up one of those 92 knockoffs they are doing right now. They're supposed to be 100% parts-compatible with the real thing.
