I am a conservative in every stereotypical sense of the word. Meet the newest member of my family:
My brand spanking new, Beretta 96FS .40 semi-automatic light rail handgun… I ordered the aftermarket rubber grips to add to the comfort:
I was reading about this particular series of Beretta handguns, and apparently I stumbled onto the gun that the U.S. Armed Forces use, so it can’t be all bad. The guy at the store tried to talk me into going with the wussy 9mm instead of the .40, but I didn’t listen to him. He was concerned that the recoil on a .40 would make accuracy too difficult, but I got the last laugh, because this gun works as either single or double action. If I want a light trigger pull, I can just use the double action. And if someone is trying to climb through my window at 3 AM, I can use the semi-automatic single action. It’s perfect for any situation. I can’t tell you how perfect the balance on this gun is. It’s a good weight, too. (about 41 ounces loaded) I didn’t like the compact, because the grip was too small for my hand.
Unfortunately, I can’t use it as a spidergunÂ®, since if I started firing a .40 in my house, I’m pretty sure the police would frown on it.
My mom told me to make sure I lock it up, because as soon as Abby figures out to load it, she’s gonna empty the clip into Amber. I have a feeling she’s right.
So, if anyone would like to go target shooting with me, just bring your kevlar.
