Iconic for a reason

I have always wanted a Beretta 92 [first produced in 1976], thanks to iconic action movies and my first gun safety class. When I finally bought one, I went milspec and got the M9A1—not only because I'm a poser, but also because it has a full-length barrel, picatinny-styled bottom rail to mount a light, and larger grips compared to many other 92 models (Vertec, Elite IA, M9A3, etc.). I have not been disappointed. The gun has a great feel and has light recoil. It is rugged, accurate at distance (25+ yds? no problem), and is almost comically easy to clean and service, especially when doing a detail strip. I was worried about the polymer spring guide, but after 3,000rds, there's virtually no wear. My one complaint is that the grips are actually too small for my monster-gorilla hands, but if I wear gloves, I tend to have greater control and don't notice as much. If you are considering getting this, it's worth it—it may be old tech, but it's iconic for a reason. It's a hoot to shoot.
