they are picky with ammo, and are harder to field strip than many other handguns. You usually have to keep them very clean or they are prone to jam. I just feel that fro the price, there are a lot of better options out there. If I were going to buy a new handgun, beretta would be pretty low on my list. (my personal opinion)

I disagree with reaper308 I have carried the 96 for years and shot thousands of rnds without a jam. The piece is heavy and large which dampens recoil and fits my mitt. I suspect a hung rnd is more due to fatigued wrist or recoil slide spring. A 40 hydro will leave a cavity in a the chest large enough for you to stick your head through.

It sucks to face the action end of a barrel and be out of bullets.

Berettas aren't bad

They do not point as well as many other guns, but the majority of the bad press stems from the magazines that went to Iraq with the M9 pistols. Those mags kinda suck. I don't like the Beretta as much as many other guns, but I would trust my life to one.

Some families have long histories of tending to the tree of liberty, others have a long history of living in its shade.
