I've never really cared for the Beretta 92 and for no good reason. There was a new compact model for sale here a short time ago and I bought it. The gun is very nice looking, slick and tight with a pretty good trigger. I took it to the range yesterday and shot it for the first time. With a rest at 18 yards, the first round was in the bullseye and I cut a nice group after that. I'll be keeping this one.
