Editor’s Note:

The Beretta M9 served as the standard sidearm of the U.S. military for over 30 years, owing to its reliability and ease of use. These are accurate handguns with strong ergonomics, and the size and weight make them easy to shoot and instill confidence in the user. Although the design is a bit dated at this point, many are still drawn in by the aesthetics, shootability, and reliability of the 92-series platform.

Beretta 92FS

Beretta 92FS


“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

Beretta 92X Performance

Beretta 92X Performance


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.

CZ 75B

CZ 75B


“The venerable CZ-75 is a classic design that still serves in many militaries around the world…and it’s a great addition to any firearm collection. Chambered in 9mm, it offers an all-metal design with DA/SA operation. And its most modern version, the CZ 75B is a solid and well-built pistol with great ergonomics and a tough, dependable reputation. For that, we can’t recommend it enough.” – Travis Pike

final verdict

The Beretta M9 served admirably as the standard military sidearm of the U.S. for a long time. Although the design is growing older, the basic M9 is still one of the softest and easiest shooting pistols on the market today. While newer versions have some nice improvements, the iconic original M9 is still quite effective and fun to shoot, especially when paired with the newer higher-capacity flush-fit magazines.  Its proven track record and ease of use have ensured that it is here to stick around for the long haul.
