    I've wanted a Beretta 86 Cheetah for almost as long as I've owned a pistol...
    I was worth the wait.
    first 9 rounds in 10 seconds, 3" group at 12yrds (good for me).:)
    It's amazing how much better I can shoot with a gun that fits like it was custom fit and built for me. I've got a couple that I couldn't do half as well given an hour to shoot and a bench rest.

    A full size double stack Beretta (and others) grips are far to big for my hand (like I'd need to grow my trigger-fingernail real long to even reach the trigger:()
    Now,...to find one for a good price in Stainless...(for formal wear)

    Sometimes, when we get something we've wanted for a long time it can be a disappointment ... not this!

    Beretta really makes beautiful handguns (and everything else). The fit, finish and ergonomics are always a pleasure to me!
    Congratulations, albin! SRG
