Holy CRAP that's a great piece!

Slugs make a really big hole. Scary big.

And yet I'll still take the 7.62x39 over a round that won't penetrate a car door.

I actually wanted to get a couple car doors for fun but the salvage yards want too much for them. I don't think I would feel particularly safe behind a car door with a deer slug heading my way. Hopefully I'll never find out.

A nice little shotgun, though. Short barrel and light weight. Recoil was noticeable but not bad with the heavier loads.

Oh, sorry. That's the US military designation for a Beretta's 92 series of full-size 9mm pistols.

I've seen one of these back in the 80's and tried to buy it. I wish I would have tried harder I have never seen another one. The safety could switch to any barrell or all three at once.





Very cool one of those kick you're self in the ass times for not buying it.

A combination of the actual model and the military designation.

Beretta 92 is the model. M9 is the military designation.

Been out a while! I was issued an M-1911 so I'm an old fart!

OK, I can't claim this is a gun I love (per the thread title), but I bought a new safe yesterday and was moving guns around and came across this little nickel plated POS. A Raven P-25 that was given to me by my father-in-law somewhere along the line. I can almost picture him buying it at a gas station for $50 back in the 1970's. He couldn't find the magazine so I tossed it in the back of the safe and forgot about it. I went ahead and ordered a magazine this morning, but I'm not sure I've got the nerve to shoot the thing.



I found just the hat to wear to the range with it:
