I just found this if anyone wants to check it out
does anyone know anything good or bad about the Cougar made by stoeger
Haven't gotten much feedback on them, but pretty much it is just a Beretta Cougar.
It's just done by a subsidiary of Beretta and made in their Turkish factory. It's a good deal on a good pistol.
I Love mine!
really good accuracy, very reasonable muzzel flip, good solid feel in the hand.
500 rounds with not a hiccup.
Dependable quality for a $300 price range!
I'll never sell it.
You can't go wrong...buy it.
I met a guy at the local range last year. He had just picked one up at Sportsman's Warehouse, I think for about $300! It was a .40 caliber model. He never had any trouble with it. I shot it, and it was accurate, light recoil, and went bang every time I pulled the trigger. Seems like a really nice gun for the money. It's available in 9mm, too. As already mentioned, it's a Beretta made in Turkey.
it seems like it is a better gun the a ruger P95 or P98 don't you guys think
To tell the truth the cougar was the gun I was looking at getting for my first. Though what can I say that M9 and 1911 of mine just screamed at me. Past that the only thing I can truly say is it's on my list of things to get.
for anyone that has shot one do you like the .40 or the 9mm better?
Mine is a .40S&W
I think there is very little difference in recoil and dependability between .9mm and .40. The recoil and muzzle flip difference I'd think would be negligible.
A very solid pistol!
(And yes, I got mine new too for just under $300. Can't beat it for Beretta relibility and quality...under their subsidiary company name). Very accurate too.
