    I'm a little late too...but I am a retired LEO. A few years ago, the subject came up at a class being taught at an academy that the slide could be snatched off you Beretta and there was no defense against it..Me, in my infinite wisdom responded by saying that they wewre wrong. When asked to explain, I told them, if I had a suspect at gunpoint and he made a move towards me or my weapon..simple solution...pull the trigger..
    A firearms instructor wanted me to prove it. I unloaded a 96, it was triple checked ( to confirm it was empty) and every time he would grab for my gun, I won the speed contest, and snapped it before he could active the take down...

    I believe it's a bunch of B.S. movie fiction. Our military has been issued the m9 since the late 80's and the m9 has seen true life, live or die combat all over the world, from Panama to Desert Storm 1 and 2 and Afganistan to name a few. I have yet to hear about any stories of enemy's attempting, much less, being successful in snatching slides off the m9 and are still here to talk about it. You would think if it were true and so easy to do it would have been attempted a time or two, but I wouldn't recommend it as it sounds like it's a good way to get waxed. The tactic of pushing the slide back to make the pistol unable to fire would seem more probable, but again another risky venture.

    The 92 platform has become my fav - even more so than 1911s...

    The "Beretta strip / grab" as Seen in Lethal Weapon 4...

    This may be a little off subject.I am not a beretta fan but know they are a reputable company and have a long history in firearms.I was looking at a lot of disarm techniques and one had a move that by grabbing muzzle portion and pressing a button the slide came off.The 92fs was issued to A.F. security police long after my time.This is what the gun looked like.I thought that was something to file away if the perp had a beretta.I am I correct in this thinking.I also put this as another reason for not purchasing one.Is this true about being able to push a button in front of gaurd to remove slide.

    I've moved this into it's own thread as not to derail a thread on another topic..

    The take down lever on the 92FS/M9 is just just a push button, it's a button and "cam"


    The technique shown in the movie can be done, but it's not just a simple maneuver of pushing a button and ripping the slide off, you need to push the button, turn the cam, and pull.


    It's not an easy feat, my wife worked with a guy that could do it pretty quick with some the 92FS and some Sigs.


    I think there's all ready a thread on this elsewhere, I'll go look for it...

    Thank you for the correction and placing it properly.Like I said I really didnt have the knowledge to speak on it and was curious.I didnt even remember the movie as I found it in a group of disarm techniques.A solid reason for not believing everything you see or read.

    Since this has come up, I thought I'd jump in again...

    If someone has their hand on your gun like this - they can just take it from you. Also, push the slide back on any semi auto, and its "deactivated" as long as the slide is held back. Once again, you have a ton of problems. They can just as well take your gun out of your hands.

    Anyway - I alluded to it before - but here is a picture from the movie... Notice the disassembly lever is ALREADY down...



    If you are going to let THIS stop you from buying a Beretta 92, then its just ridiculous...

    Hell, as you can see, I'm not worried about this silly maneuver...

    @ Shipwreck, nice collection there. May I ask what kind of holster you use for the 92 compact that you carry? Im having trouble finding one.

    Comptac Pro Undercover. It has now been replaced with the Comptac Infidel.

    You use a fullsize 92 holster - works fine for a compact 92. It just has a tiny bit of extra space at the end.

    Yeah, i have a Gould and Goodrich IWB, i use for my fullsize, the Compact fits in there very well, i was just trying to see if there was anything out there for the shorter barrel. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Unless you go custom for a holster, you are stuck with fullsize holsters
