#2 bucket list firearm :)

I have a small collection of firearms but did not have my #2 on my bucket list, the Beretta 92FS. I stopped at the local Gander Mountain to take a look at possibly purchasing a pocket .380 for the upcoming summer. I always take a look in the used gun case, to my joy there was a 92FS along with 2 holsters and magazine holder, everything looked new, for $399.99 and got an additional $20.00 off for customer appreciation day. I can't wait to take it to the range

The Beretta 92 FS is one of the best, full-size DA/SA, all-metal, 9 mm pistols made. So long as your hands are big enough to deal with the thick grip and still comfortably reach the double action trigger.

Well I think most of us need a continuous Bucket List on guns! Now I want the new Ruger LCRX .357 now to replace my LCRX .38 Special!!

That pistol is next in line for my handgun bucket list. Nice purchase. I would have scooped that deal up too. Enjoy!

Nice deal. I don't seem to get so lucky with used guns at the LGS. I did with a couple private purchases. I think you'll like that gun.

Great choice,
Semi autos do not get any smoother than these, it's like they ride on ball bearings.
The open ( or partial rail) system is a big part of it.
Congrats & we love pictures here.

My full size 92 Inox & tactical compact with rail.

Une thing i have found out is there are lots of firearm lovers and great people on this and my Taurus web board
My SIG Sauer board i have had 2 likes, i think they are all stuck up on SIG and all other firearms are inferior

Great gun! My buddy owns one and that was the first pistol I had ever shot. I suppose that's to blame for me entering the hobby, lol. That's a great price! I would have bought it too.
