    Beretta or Glock?

    I shot a Beretta years ago and in the market for a first time hand gun.

    I recently fired a glock 19 and really liked it but unsure.

    What is your guys thought about the Beretta vs. GLock? Which is superior?

    How much did that cost you if you don't mind me asking? Im still on the fence......

    In California, the glock 9'mm are around $540 on sale, a Beretta 9mm with a rebate is around $450-500.

    I don't know about " superior", but, I am biased towards Beretta.........grip feel(which is different for everyone) ease of maintenance, metal versus plastic(I own a plastic firearm) just the way it feels and shoots....it's such a subjective thing........trigger, sights, mags...........I saw your prices......here a Glock is around $400-450...........same for the Beretta px models, but 92's and 96's are around $650.

    I bought a gun 3 months ago0 and started firing for the first time in decades. I bought a Glock, at least partially due to price. It shoots fine but I have never gotten over not having any safeties on the gun except pulling the trigger. I then picked up a 22 pistol that was DA/SA and remembered how much I like a single action trigger. So I bought a PX4 Compact in 9MM and love it. So if you are used to striker fired systems with no safety go for the Glock. But if your history includes single action guns I expect you will prefer a Beretta.

    Thats the one thing I'm surprised with the glock, you can't tell if its loaded or not unless you drop the mag and rack the slide. I kinda like the safety feature on the beretta. I also like the s&w m9 and the visual on the top to see if a gun is in the chamber.

    I just need to fire some more and figure out what is best for me I guess.

    A Glock also has safeties, they're just internal, except for the one on the trigger. Also, the newer Glocks have what's called a Loaded Chamber Indicator (LCI). It's a little extra nub of metal on the extractor. IF the chamber is loaded, the Nub will stick out past the slide and can be felt or seen. And if does indeed stick out, the gun is loaded, but Rule #1: The gun is always loaded.

    Also, no need to drop mag and rack slide...Google "Press Check"

    I can't tell you which "is superior".

    I can tell you I've had an Italian made FS92 since 1992. One of the "original Wonder Nines". Thousands of rounds. No trouble. It's my nightstand gun.
    I'm partial to the double action/single action aluminum framed hammer fired gun. Mine has factory Trijicon night sights.

    Lots of people love the Glocks. Personally, I think they "work fine". But, they have all the character of my fridge, stove, washer, and dryer appliances.

    Some times, you just have to go with the "good stuff".
    No, I'll never have a Prius. Or, a Camry.
    Which is why I have three vehicles. I'm single. I don't really need all three.
    A '71 Camaro Z28. A '97 Jeep Cherokee "fixed" for 4-wheeling. A 2004 Corvette Z06 Z16. You only live once, for a while. YMMV.

    Not true. The Glock uses the same loaded chamber indicator that the Beretta 92 series employees. The extractor protrudes and can be both seen and felt to do this when there is a round in the chamber.

    Nope. Glock has had this forever.

    I have a Beretta 92 clone... a Taurus 92AF and it's a fine little gun. Mine's a newer one and I don't think it is as good as the ones made in the 90's (I had three of them then). A personal opinion follows but that's what you're looking for.

    I don't care for double action pistols for my carry and home defense pistols. I much prefer double action only because of the same trigger action from first to last shot. Again, that's strictly an opinion and other folks have theirs. All of my carry guns are DAO designs (well the Smith and Wesson M&P pistol is technically a SAO, but that is not how it is classed). Once again, strictly an opinion.

    Hate to get into this...but please know what you're talking about before correcting people. Original Glock extractors on early Gen.'s DID NOT have the LCI. Quote by me...Certified Glock Armorer.

    Glock, when you own one you get it. Easy to clean, easy to shoot, light and accurate

    Thank you for your correction. Gen 3's all have the LCI but didn't the gen 2's have this as well?

    The answer in neither. They are both excellent pistols, but what do you prefer a DA/SA or a striker fired pistol. Are you wanting a CCW, range gun/home defense pistol? The DA/SA may take a little more time to master, but is what I prefer. I've heard very few reports on either handgun failing when needed, both are tried and true warriors grasshopper. You could have made it much easier if you were to compare a Highpoint w/ the Glock or Beretta.

    range gun/ home defense pistol, exactly.

    i live in CA, even if I wanted a CCW, its almost impossible to obtain one here.

    i'm leaving towards a glock at this point. my co-worker is recommending i check out a s&w before i make a purchase.

    i'm 90% sure i want a glock. either a g19 or g17. or should i go with a .40 cal glock? this is a difficult decision being my first gun purchase.

    You've got to shoot them both to decide. I shot them both side by side at a range that rented a large variety. Between a Glock 17 and a Beretta 92, I liked the Beretta by a considerable margin. I've been told that the Beretta has a large grip that fits better in large hands, but my hands are average sized and it felt great to me. For me the Beretta was #3 on my list of favorite guns that I tried, and the Glock was #7 out of 10. Your experience may be the opposite, but no way to know without trying them out.
