    I have a beretta 92 fs and a glock 26. Love them both and don't want to sell either.

    A plastic gun will always take a second seat to an all-metal gun.

    Not always. Polymer definitely has its advantages that an all metal gun of similar size just can't beat.

    Guys,

    I've had both, and consumpted many of their barrels: now listen me:
    92 has a tecnical life of 3.500 rounds; glock has 150.000 rounds-life; beretta (an excellent side gun) it's complicate to master, differently from glock; ... with one of my glock I fired under water, in a swimming pool: can you do it with a beretta? do not attempt to do it, please ...
    ...oh I was forgetting: I'm from Italy

    Hi HH...

    no, the matter is not into the evenience in wich you could need to shoot underwater: it's in the mechanical complex, and materials: if you do it with a beretta, you'll use the other hand to say hello to friends

    I love beretta, too, and I had 3 92; I'm a military, I know what I say. To be safe, military berettas are retired every 3.500 rounds. Glock has a never anding lifetime, none has seen structural damages if not due to wrong charges, or shoots with occluded barrel.
    The only things you can breack are the firing pin spring, and the disconnector spring. That's all.

    To be complete, I'll tell you that a beretta who 'has sooted' breacks the right safety lever, the rolling block (..may be I'm wrong with therms, excuse me , I'm a forenger) and may present damages on the slides: the FS model has been developed appositly, due to the fact that in F model some shooter received on the face the back part of the slide, once crashed

    Stay Well, and shoot straight (also under water, if you need it, but in that case use a glock)

    Hi LAGay

    the question it's difficult to answer.

    Let's say this:

    my side gun should fit my hand, do not exceed in measures to be carried, have a good number of rounds, and BE AFFORDABLE.
    Now I'll try to start from the end: AFFORDABLE is a gun wich demonstrates it. Glock does it over beretta performances. Read, too, my comments about tecnical life.... but affordability is a difficult subject, if talking of selfe defence: while beretta is done for professional and continuous excercise, glock is not: every round is fired in the same trigger 'action', and you do not have something that has demonstrate to be very dangerous for operators, in stress conditions: the SAFETY.
    Many poicemans, in italy where thet carry it with a non chambered round, are found dead, with many unfired cartridges around, and the gun SAFE, AND CHAMBERED, near to the body. What does it tells you? ... we are talking of a gunfight, not a range sunday morning.

    Than, a glock 19, for example, is shorter that a beretta of about 1 inch, and it has 17+1 rounds, in 9mm.
    There is no match, sorry. The day I'll need it, please gimme a 19C glock model, fitted with a 17 round mag,...thanks.

    Captn,

    A Beretta does not have a service life of 3.5K. Either we're losing something in translation or you're just misinformed.

    I'm thinking that there might be a reason for the name "Captain Zero".

    Glock is now my favourite gun (19C model) and I had it since 2000 year. I now own the 5th.
    I've used it at the same rithm, changing just the firing pin spring and the disconnector spring. The first one weacks in 1 year of carryng in condition 1, the second breacks in 15.000 rounds.
    No other problems with glock: I fired a round also in a swimming pool, 1 meter depht

    Regards
    I believe he means to say an average service life of 35,000 rounds. However, I don't know about the Italian military, but the U.S. military has many, many, M9's still in service well past 35,000 rounds. The M9 has been in U.S. service for the past 25 years and has seen numerous theatres in war(unlike Italy or Austria), perhaps more than any pistol on earth, has been handled, shot and abused by troops who are known not to be the best at maitenance and don't own them.. I do believe 25 years in U.S. service and many wars are a testament to the M9's duarability,longevity, and reliability, as the M9 is destined to go down like it's predecessor the venerable Colt 1911 as a true and abused war horse, when and if it's replaced. Beretta USA announced on September 30, 2011 that the U.S. Army's Foreign Military Sales program has purchased an additional 15,778 Model 92FS pistols for the Afghan military and other U.S. allies. The Model 92FS is the non-U.S. military designation for the M9 pistol. In September 2012, Beretta USA announced that the US Army had bought 100,000 M9 pistols and that the M9 "would remain their sidearm for the next five years."
