About 10 years ago I developed macular degeneration in my left eye. It was such that if I closed my right eye, I had a huge black spot in my left eye. As a result I sold the pistols I had, 4 at the time, and that was that. As time has passed I have either gotten used to my left eye, or/and it has improved some. Since it has I decided it was time to try another pistol. Of the guns I had in the past I was always fondest of the Beretta 92 I had. I also had a Beretta Cougar, but I think that gun has been discontinued. So I went with the Beretta 92A1, a full sized, and handful, gun. I don't plan on CCW, but if I do, I'll be getting a Sigarms P239. The Beretta is a house gun and a range gun. There are a few improvements over the standard 92FS, with the most visible being the built in accessory rail. I am going to replace the standard grips with a set of Hogue black/gray G-10 G-Mascus Chain Link grips, as soon as they arrive. I know that the Beretta 92 has it's detractors, but I'm definately not one. I love the design, the simplicity of take down, and the craftsmanship of this gun. Anyone elase a 92 fan? Btw, I just got the gun Monday and have not had the chance to get to the range and try it out, but I'm sure I will not be dissappointed when I do!
