- Open slide design reduces weight
- Easy to reach controls
- Ambi safety/decocker
- A little too pricey
- Difficult for those with small hands
“This is a very accurate and precise gun that’s consistent in its ability to hit your target. Contributing to its accuracy is the fact it’s easy to control, and you’re unlikely to flinch firing it. This gun feels excellent in the handle. The front and rear texturing is a nice touch, and the grip fits just right in the hand. The magazine release and slide lock are easy to reach and engage. All in all, it’s a little dated but still a good gun.” – Travis Pike
The Beretta 92FS is definitely an eye-catching design. Its looks really set it apart from nearly every other handgun out there. Chambered in 9mm, it measures 8.5 inches in total length with a 4.9-inch barrel. The gun weighs in at 34.2 ounces empty and features a slide-mounted safety with decocker. Its trigger guard is squared slightly, and the gun comes in a number of different finishes, including the two-tone Inox and all stainless models.

Beretta 92FS Variations & Comparables
Beretta’s 92X Performance builds on the 92 platform but elevates performance with out-of-the-box ready competition features. The Extreme S trigger feels like a dream while the gun itself brings fast cycling to the table. It’s hefty, so be prepared for that, but at the end of the day, you want that in a competition gun for recoil purposes. All in all, this is a solid shooter.
The Glock G17 adheres to the elements of Glock you’ve come to expect. With a 9mm chambering, the full-size semi-auto pistol features familiar Glock ergonomics and performance. It’s a reliable shooter and durable — it won’t stop until you do. For slightly smaller versions, check out the G19 (midsize) or the G43X (compact).
The VP9 is HK’s entry into striker-fired pistols. It’s reliable with great ergonomics and an incredibly clean trigger. The VP9 features a light, premium trigger, customizable grips, ambidextrous controls, an extended Picatinny rail, and an advanced striker-fired slide. Price on the VP9 is also quite reasonable – competitive with Glocks. The VP9 comes with different configurations, available in multiple colors and mag counts. The recent variants of the gun features optics-ready slides, a normal mag release button, and 17-round mags.
“Most people that have tried the 92FS either love it or hate it; there’s no in-between. It’s an older design, and there are improvements that can be made and have been made to improve it. But the core pistol is dead-on reliable and proven on the battlefield in humid jungles, snow-covered mountains, and scorching deserts. We would trust our life to it, and we just love plinking with it. If you don’t have one, you need one!” – Travis Pike
