Today Sparks Firearms starts another Black Friday Sale. We are selling the Beretta 92G for $499 (retail is $675). We got a bunch in from a distributor and want to get rid of them. They all need a new home, to be taken care of, taken to the range, and used.
Here is what the owner, Steve Sparks has to say about these guns,
“Ok, so some will not like what I have to say, but here goes… Why do I like the Beretta 92/M9/92FS/92A1 and especially the 92G? In 1989, I entered the United States Air Force Security Police as a Law Enforcement Apprentice (811X2). I was handed a Smith and Wesson .38 caliber, 6 shot revolver. In those days, they gave me 18 rounds of ball ammunition, 6 to go into the weapon and 12 rounds, broken down into two “speed loaders” which consisted of two plastic strips with 6 rounds of .38 ammunition falling out of it barely holding together because the plastic had been mostly destroyed from over use. I was to put these strips of plastic speed loaders into my ammo pouches in case I needed them. Good for me I never did need them because they just weren’t ever coming out of there on a good day, much less during a fire fight of any significance.
So, somewhere around 1990, just before Desert Storm, The Air Force started handing out brand new equipment and brand new Beretta M9’s… none of which had ever been fired. Yes, I know… for my Army and Marine brethren… sucks to be you. But here I was, a E-3 at the time with brand new equipment and a brand new weapon now with 2 magazines of 15 rounds each with a round in the barrel and a weapon on fire in my holster ready to use it if I ever needed to… many of the cops I was with felt as if the Air Force finally got it. Our safety was finally going to be paramount and the leadership finally saw that. I fired an M9 for the rest of my career and personally own my own gun I bought just so I could go out to the range and spend more time practicing my fundamentals more than the Air Force would allow me to have.
Now, Beretta has finally come out with really, in my humble opinion, one of the best alternatives for this weapon platform… the 92G. The Beretta 92G is basically the same gun as the rest of the Beretta 92’s with one major difference. The safety feature isn’t a safety, it’s only a decocker. This means if you’re out there shooting your weapon and stop with a round in the chamber with the gun cocked, you can decock the hammer safely and the weapon goes right back to fire. There is really no safety on the gun. It’s the type of gun I wish the military would have had while I was in. We (Air Force Cops) really rarely ever needed the safety on the weapon. But, who knows… that’s just me.
In a gun fight, FBI statistics say the average gun fight is 7 to 10 feet apart in distance… with the average rounds fired… five. The average hits… less than one. I really don’t like safeties on guns I have to remember to turn off at the beginning of a gun fight. The Air Force taught me to have my weapon on fire all the time in my holster. That’s the beauty of this 92G. It doesn’t stay on safe… it is always on fire. That’s why I like this version of the Beretta 92. You should check it out. Maybe you’ll like it too. Thanks for your time. Prepare for the worst… and hope for the best!”
