    Default mi amore

    Bought another gun I don't need but couldn't resist. Classic had a special a couple of weeks ago on European LE turn-in 85f Barettas (the civilian version would be the Cheetah) for well under market rates that I couldn't pass up (damn drunken impulse buy). Picked it up today from my FFL.

    Made in Italy, 8 + 1 single stack .380, SA/DA with decocker, really nice shape. Literally looks like whoever it was issued to ran a few rounds through to qualify, cleaned and oiled, and then carried it for the rest of its life without ever firing another round. Barrel is pristine, gun has a very few small dings but otherwise in excellent condition.

    This one is going to live in the truck as a "just in case" piece.

    Very nice! Looks in great shape. Partial to the smaller Beretta's. The 92's are a bit large in grip for me but I bought one of our trade ins long ago anyhow.
    My chief has the single stack version of the 92 in 9mm. It's sweet. I'd love to have one of those.

    That is nice. I'd bet it's a smooth shooter.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    I carried a Beretta 84 for many years. It was a totally reliable gun. It was the easiest gun to shoot well I ever owned. Also had the 85fs. Perfect in every way. A great addition to any collection.

    What's it say there in front of the trigger guard. Can't quite make it out. Can't figure out how to blow the picture up.

    Well Done!
    Always wanted one.
    But there's only so much time.
    And I've got a limited supply of money - LOL!
    Enjoy your new firearm
