    I have for the longest time been searching for a Beretta Billennuim to add to my Beretta collection. Only 2000 of these were produced in celebration of the Y2K, 1000 went to the US market and the other 1000 for world wide distribution. Indeed they are difficult to find and the unfired examples are a great investment.

    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.

    Since 2006, the Military Version of the Beretta 92 FS has been known as the M9A1

    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:

    I worked as a gas station attendant in '77 with a guy who carried one of those. He described it as "an arms-reach gun". :lol3

    Hell, that one has sights on it- it's the target model :D


    and I'm not kidding, my Mother-in-Law has one that just has a bead on the front of the barrel, nothing in the rear. Can't remember the manuf, I've only seen it once

    What does the law consider this? Pistol? SBS? Does it need a stamp?

    AOW. $5 stamp, but the manufacturer over charges enough for it to make for the lack of $200 stamp.

    WTF? And you can quote me. Holy shit, looks like a mad-max item. What is it, .32? How bizzare, but at least you don't have to reload every six rounds....

    GF's pop pulled one of those out of the safe the other night - evil little bastard, that gun is. Just dry-firing it makes my hand hurt.

    Probably best that you didn't since anything that fires more than one round per trigger pull is pretty much a no-no.

    My father in law gave my wife one of these P-25's. I bought her a good handgun so it went into the back of the safe same as yours. I've shot it a few times. While hard to hold and the lousy sights make it pretty ineffective past 5yds or so...it was surprisingly 100% reliable. I'd never trust carrying it...but I guess it would work if you didn't have much money and needed a firearm. I've put about 150 rnds through it in total and probably won't put another 150 through it in my lifetime...but another gun in the safe is not such a bad thing.
