I want to add a Beretta 92 and 96 to the collection, and wondered if the Taurus equivilants are worth considering.

I have a Taurus PT 99. Itís a reliable good shooting gun. Wonít hold near the resale value or cool factor of a Beretta but I bought it to shoot not flip anyway.

The earliest ones, produced on the Beretta tooling, are the best ones.

My EDC carry is an old Taurus PT92 from the early production.

Ironically, I have a brand new PT92 that I have never shot yet - it's looks to be VERY well made.

If you wanted a Beretta, why would you go after a copy?

Unless it was actually an improvement... Im not seeing H&K making a Beretta 92 copy for less money, so...

Taurus is possibly on its way out of business after this last lawsuit (Carter v. Taurus). A bunch of us FORMER Taurus owners are waiting for them to remedy us on guns we sent in for replacement.

They are mismanaged and irresponsibly run. You're free to spend your money on them but do it knowing that their "lifetime warranty" is a joke.

Aim Surplus has real Beretta 92s models for $310. Real Beretta cheaper than Taurus.

I am not opposed to imported guns at all but Taurus leaves me stone cold. Had one of their revolvers years ago, it worked but it just wasn't what it should have been. On the flip side I know more recent Taurus owners who are very happy with them.

I honestly don't know how some of you guys EDC a pistol heavy enough to double as a boat anchor. The older I get the less I want something helping gravity pull my pants down. G27s, Shields, and Model 642s have become my choice for EDC.

This is a case where you spend the extra money to get the Beretta. If not, you'll always kick yourself for buying the cheaper clone. There are so many 92FS out there, you can fid one used for cheaper. I have owned at least 7 or 8 of them (used). Cheapest was $275, some were $350, a few in the $375 range.
