It wasn't in time for the 1911 page, but I just picked up this Wilson CQB

Fine looking M-92!

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!
