Three good custom Beretta sources ...... Wilson Combat, LTT and Allegheny Arms in the Burgh.

I tend to favor;
Allegheny Arms for custom work/build... good folks.....local to me. Thou, I got my Beretta Elite IIs on E Langdon's recommendation..... and

Wilson Combat for "factory custom" as they have to old style decocker vs the "Kit", and old style (S) round trigger guard.

If you can find them Farrar made a Mag collar that turns a Compact into a Centurion..... there are also X-grip mag adaptors.

Another great one if you can find one is the Factory "Elite II" designed by Ernest Langdon when he worked for Beretta . Used they were going for over $1000 but with the new Wilson and LTT guns the prices have come down.


For "cocked and locked" you can't go wrong with a Browning HP... I like the newer MkIII for their safety and sights.

Iím getting back to my old roots of target shooting at 50 yards. Iím guilty of being one of those guys you see at the range shooting their 9mm at 7 yards. I can keep them all in the black but big deal. Unlike the blue 19-5 I have or the Nickel 15-4 the HK has no personality. Itís a tool.

Since now is the time to sell Iím thinking of offloading the VP9 and getting something else. Something that gives me the same feeling when I pick up those nice steel and wood revolvers.
I don't have any suggestions that haven't already been named. I'm a BHP fan myself... even though I don't own one. I do hope to own one someday if the stars ever align properly. For now, I get by with my Tisas Regent BR9 clone.

But that's not why I'm posting. What I want to know is why so many shooters consider the HK VP9 so boring? This is a common theme I've run into and I don't see why the VP9 is any more boring than any other generic 9mm plastic striker-fired wonder gun?

I mean, aren't 9mm plastic striker-fired pistols supposed to be boring? And if so, what makes the VP9 so much more boring than most?

Another vote for the new model SIG P-210... Held one in a gun shop last Christmas and found a great deal on a unfired "used" one for $899.00 a few months later... It has the standard stights and grips vs. the target stocks and adjustable sights but since it is spot on that is fine with me...

There are not too many triggers that can beat the one SIG puts on these...

Lots of good pistols discussed here. As a CZ 75 PCR owner, I would recommend as the price point of stock CZ's is very good. Many come in 10 round versions.

I have seen many good suggestions, a few highly dubious ones (someone suggested the Glock 17)

However I didn't see the one.

I would suggest to you, the Sig 2022. Its affordable, its dependable, and its fun. It isn't tiring, its quite accurate, but its one of those rare polymer hammer guns., and the biggest problem with it is solved by living in a ban state, I find the full 15 round mag to be a thumb ripper to load.

Something 1911 or maybe a 210. Now days the only handguns that interest me are S&W revolvers or 1911s but I shot a friends 210 and it might be interesting.
