    Two new Italian girlfriends,,,

    For many many years I have wanted a Beretta 87 Cheetah,,,
    Well I finally bit the bullet and ordered a brand new one for myself.

    Then not one week later I walk into the Evil Pawn Shop just to browse,,,
    There behind the glass was a very nice Model 85BB with two magazines for only $435.00



    Now I am the proud owner of not one Cheetah, but two of them

    I really hate that pawn shop!

    I had one back in 1978--I don't think it was called a Cheetah back then but a 13 round .380 with DA on the first shot. It was, as I recall a light recoiling weapon. I traded it in on a Walther PPKS in stainless steel. I was enamored with the idea of stainless steel weapons, my Gold Cup was SS and so was my Centenial.

    I had two Berettas back then, the Cheetah and a .25 in single action only. I forget the model number. Both were perfectly reliable. There were no aftermarket magazines back then and the OEM magazines were very expensive--but functioned perfectly. If you have feed problems and you are using an aftermarket magazine that would be the first place I would look.

    I have no memory of its accuracy--only that the grip was quite fat and was a bit too big for my hands.

    Nice weapons. Been around a long time.

    Congrats on the Cheetah. I have one with the black grips. It is a nice little sister to my 92 F.

    Do you have any idea what it's going to cost to maintain 2 italian ladies?

    Ammo costs alone will break you.

    But, oh my the fun.

    A friend of mine has four cars. I asked him once, "How many miles do you travel with four cars?"

    And he replied, "The same number of miles as I would if I had one car."

    I think that the same reasoning would apply to the two Italian sisters.

    Not any more than my Bersa pistols in the same calibers.

    Once I got them home,,,
    Upkeep is the same.
