big difference between beretta m9 and beretta 92fs?
i'm going to buy a hand gun within the next week or so and I've gone from wanting a glock (g17 or g19, 9mm) to a Beretta. My friend has one that he's only put a few hundred rounds through it. It's a Beretta 92fs (9mm) for $500 cash.
I've been looking in the local shop we have in California and you can get a Beretta m9 for $580 after rebate, or the 92fs for $550 after rebate.
What's the difference in the m9 and 92fs? Any guidance and recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
they are basically the same except the sights
A. Distinctive military style markings: on various components
closely replicate those of the U. S. Armed Forces
B. Unique M9-prefixed serial number: (M9-xxxxxx) sets
this configuration apart from the other 92 series pistols.
C. “Dot-and-Post” sight system: clones that of the M9.

If you Wikepedia these firearms, you will get a lot of info.......when younger, I shot just revolvers off and on...the first semi auto I ever fired was a 92fs..........along time ago....since then, I have owned 4 of them, 2 inox, 2 Brunion.......I have moved up to the 96...I like .40 cal....after firing many firearms, I always go back to Beretta's....I like the way the grip angle, and feel, is....I like the ease of maintenance, I like the balance, I like the trigger...the sights could use some improvement, the recoil feel is smooth. For the money, IMHO, still the best firearm(handgun) being made today. So far.....
