    Default The Most thoroughly proven pistol?

    The Beretta M9 was my favorite movie gun, as a kid watching Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, and Van Damme films.

    Itís come to be my most trusted pistol. The XM9 trials resulted in the Beretta averaging 13,000 rounds before a failure. Recently, the Tennessee built M9ís weíre tested, resulting in an average of 19,090 rounds fired before a failure.

    I donít know if my best revolvers can do that. Back in 1911, JMBís design performed a 5,000
    Round test without a failure, and that was huge.

    Other pistols may do this; Glocks, SIGs, HKs. However, the consistent documentation of the Beretta M9 performing like this is very reassuring.

    Itís becoming dated, and perhaps even old school. But Iíll always keep them nearby.

    This one probably has a longer and more reliable history

    I don't know of any other pistol that could survive this torture test.

    I bought my M9 from another member a while back after being after one for quite a few years.I love the smoothness of the trigger,especially compared my Glocks.

    I like the Sig P220/226. The Beretta is OK except for that slide mounted safety that serves no useful purpose. It's a DA/SA.
    We now live in a lawless era where laws no longer apply to government officials.

    In terms of actual military testing, it's hard to beat my favorite. Can handle more than 30,000 rounds of +p .45 with no major issues.
