The 80x Cheetah will also be available with 10 round magazines. Now we need to get it on the handgun roster.Mostly this is for the folks who think the Cheetah is the cats meow. Don't start drooling but, Beretta is coming out with a upgraded Cheetah. Here it is, the new 80X Cheetah!
The 80x Cheetah reimagines the legendary platform, with a new sleek design and enhanced features. Ergonomically redesigned for modern day carry, the 80X Cheetah includes a smaller Vertec style grip profile, the X-treme S Double/Single trigger, skeletonized hammer, a 13+1 round capacity, and comes optics-ready out of the box.

Justification for any further firearms purchases left the building for me about 20 years ago. FSA2013 provided some justification, but I think I might have gone a little overboard.I have bee wanting a performance 92x for a long time. I can't justify it.
Love those 92FS Inoxes! Here's mine.My 92 FS Inox and 92X Compact.
The Inox is hands down my favorite pistol to shoot. I bought it used from United for $600, and it has the cool factor (for me at least) of being manufactured here in Maryland. I have, since acquiring it, upgraded to all Wilson Combat springs and polished the hammer and sear. Double action is buttery smooth and single action is a crisp 2.5 lbs.

I agree with you about the geip and feel of the 92 pistol. I love 1911’s and the92 grip is very foreign. It is a very controllable pistol, thpugh.I've owned several Berettas in the past...a 950 Jetfire, a Billenium...M9 and M92FS. I could never get to warm up to the 92 series that much...it's a big pistol for just a 9mm hole in the barrel. The only one I own now is this NIB M9A3 I bought in an auction for some distance below wholesale. I haven't decided whether to keep it any longer...it sits in the safe with little love.

You got that kind of a deal on a Taurus? The dealer was an idiot.Some years back a fellow officer was relocating to a police job in the midwest. He had a Taurus 99 he sold me cheap just to get rid of it. When shooting it I had the sights cranked all the way over and the group still wouldn't come in.
I traded it at a gun show for a then DCM M1 Garand unissued HRA model...and got $100 more in trade-in for the Taurus than I had in it. Back then the M1 was about $800...great deal.
Me either. I carried it every day for many years. Now, with the advent of lasers and reticles, maybe that long of a sight radius doesn't afford the advantage it once had. However, shooting ball, it had very little muzzle rise.I was issued the old M9 when I was serving and never really understood the hate people had for it.
