The only handgun I own is a Beretta 21A, a small .22LR (it's an inaccurate, unreliable POS). I'm looking for something centerfire now, and don't know what to get into. I was looking at a Beretta 92FS or a Glock 17 so far. Now I have heard good and bad about both, and want to know what you guys think. Yes, I am aware there is a handguns forum. Thanks for any advice.

Sniper_Wolfe, both the Beretta 92 and the Glock 17 are excellant handguns. Hi cap Mags are cheeper for the Beretta though .

My suggestion is to pick the one that gives you the best fit. The one that just feels "good" in your hand.

You can’t go wrong with either of those weapons. Both are excellent. The Glock has fewer controls and is, in my opinion, easier to manipulate under stress. The Beretta has a better trigger, but the first shot is double action. The Glock has the same trigger pull always. Personally, I find the Glock much quicker to operate on the draw and first shot.

Get a HK. Its the only handgun you will ever need.

Both are excellent.
Get the one that feels best. Shoot both if you get a chance. Then make your decision

best advice someone can ever give you on what gun to purchase is this

Go to a range that rents guns or find a friend that has one like the model u want and try it.

A Walther P99: Three different back-straps plus four different height front sights. Small hands and a very good feel with the shortest reach for me that is. Double action only, double/single action and something called a quick action which is similiar to the Glock.

Buy a H&K. I've owned Glock, Sig, & still own a Beretta. The H&K shines above all of them.

Another vote for HK.
