    Yea, there was originally a contest to pick the finalists for a name. Those are the finalists now.

    Not really too big of a fan of any of them.

    Me either really, I voted for Saber though... The other ones were really bad I thought. I mean... "Evo" looks and sounds to much like... "Devo" :-D

    And isn't "Onza" a Mexican coin...?

    Here's the full list of possible names...

    Onza

    Forza

    Panther

    Evo

    Panthera

    Saber

    I submitted EVO and a friend submitted PANTHER

    I understand that "Panther" is copywritten to another firearm company, so "Panther" is probably not gonna make it.

    I have recieved a few emails telling me I am a finalist............

    the waiting game sucks. I think they are gonna wait until American production can handle the new model since all the 90two's now are imports from Italy until they give the winners a gun. I know a few people have submitted EVO.

    Yep, its the official "no winner" contest

    Some guys on the Beretta forum claim their entry was among the finalist choices or something - If I knew a lawyer, I think I'd file suit - they have never honored their contest.... No name picked - and no winner for the person who turned in the finalist names...

    I think Gary_P, who's a member here as well, was one of the top 5 picked for the name that he submitted. I think he submitted Evo...?

    I don't know if I would be upset or just blow it off...

    not that big an issue

    I hate to wait, bought a 90-two anyways

    I work for bean counters and they suck, the bean counters at BUSA are like all I have seen before. I got a 15% coupon redeemable in april....big deal.

    I love the product, not so much the people behind the company.

    Remember BUSA, without us, you would be nothing.....(rant off)

    Well, in advertising a contest, and then never picking a winner - that is fraud...
