just bought a new beretta 92fs, Italian bult, last saturday, now I'm thinking hard about getting a Glock 22 in .40S&W soon. I love the Beretta, I shoot damn good with it. The Glock ain't bad either.

I love mine. My only gripe is the mag release.

Get a Glock 17. The end.

The G21sf is better, but I really hate to say it, but I love all of the full sized Glocks. I would own a Glock over the Beretta in a heartbeat.

In before the first stupid grenade joke. Sell the 92F and use the money to buy the G22.

I think the answer is a 10mm glock. (or Witness) Man up.

Don't do it!

Get a Sig 229 instead

NO, the Beretta just fits me really well, I like it a lot and I'm used to it, I damn near got Expert with M9 and plan on getting Expert next time I have to quality. PLus it is VERY similar to my Walther P1

I hope you're not talking about Army qualifications, because their M9 quals are some of the easiest shit I've seen since LEO Inservice.

no, USAF, last time I missed expert by 3, all center mass. I had enough in the head and on paper, just minus three on center mass

First, I own the Glock 17, 22, and 21.

Look at the dimensions of the glock 17 and 22. Notice how the external dimensions are very similar. Now, ask yourself what is different on the inside if one shoots a .355" bullet and other a .40" bullet. Internals got thinner going from the 17 to the 22.

I carry the Glock 22 on duty because I have to. My shot recovery time on both 9mm and 45 is much faster. Also, the recoil on both the 9mm and 45 is much friendler in my humble opinion.

Also, my frame, barrel, slide, rails will not be failing after a bunch of rounds with 9mm or 45. I cannot say the same necessarily for the glock 22.

Unless you have 1,000,000 rounds of .40 S&W stockpiled to shoot, I would URGE you to either go with the classic glock 17 or the glock 21. Your handsize may prevent you from comfortably shooting and operating the controls on the Glock 21.

Certainly shoot before you buy in either case.

My brother goated me into doing the exact test he was put through as an USAF SP, it was a fucking joke(used my CZ-75 I reccomend it highly). I also outshot him with ease he did not like that, he's an arrogant liberal duechebag who thinks you are sub-human if you did not serve.

I like my G22 it saw me through many years of IPSC limited with no problems

Why would you sell a superior product for an inferior product? That makes no sense.

Also, don't forget to pay your tax stamp since explosives qualify as a DD.

That's something that's always annoyed me, too. People that bitch about the weight distribution seem to have only held them while empty (like at a gun store).

They feel evenly distributed when loaded, as opposed to other guns that are bottom-heavy when loaded, which could be good if you like to pistol-whip people, I suppose.

I agree, but you did forget UGLY!!

IMO, run from a Glock, run fast and run hard!

That must be why the two FFLs I deal with on occasion tell me sell Glocks almost exclusively to service members sprinkled with the occasional HK or Sig. I am far from shocked that when service members spend thier own money they don't buy the 92F.


How many people on this board bought the Berretta for no other reason than it was/is the service pistol? I've shot the 92F on two occasions, bought a CZ-75 and G19.

Get the Glock 17. It is the original and still the best Glock. The 9mm Glocks are also much less prone to issues than the .40's.

+1. I always get a kick out of people referring to their qualifying expert (rifle and pistol, especially pistol) in the Army as some sort of serious merit.

I love on the Army pistol ranges when you have some officers or agents who are bragging about their targets and qualifying expert (if they manage to do that). When given the chance, I show them what a group should look like. If I could bring my CZs out on the range, I'd show them a magic show.

Ya might notice it at the range, but if TSHTF you probably wouldn't pause mid-fire fight and think "Gee, this sure is top heavy"

Correct. Because at no time will you ever have just one or two rounds remaining in the weapon.

This is probably good advice^^ if your life is just not complete w/out a Glock. Not to mention it keeps your ammo the same, and 9mm is usually a little cheaper for range fun.

Then again, if adding a little variety to your ammo stash is your thing, wrap your ass scratcher around a good 1911 & you'll probably leave both the 9s at home anyway.

Check out Smith and Wesson's M&P .40 before you get a Glock.

I fired one of the M&P .40s last month, and I have to say I was very impressed.

If you have a chance shoot the Glock 22 and XD40 and compare the two. I have a feeling you will like the XD40.

The Local PD issues them, they can't be that bad. That being said, I wouldn't buy one.
