Former Beretta Snob

Is there anyone else here that is a former Beretta snob like me? For over 20 years, Beretta was my main focus. Then, a little over two years ago, I bought my first Sig - the M11-A1. Now I'm down to my last Beretta handgun (PX4 Compact 9mm which is still great) and up to 5 Sigs. Don't get me wrong; Berettas are great firearms. But I'm afraid I'm now a SIG SNOB!!!

Can anyone help with this condition in which I find myself?

I have owned many Sigs over the last few years. I have 1 now - an MK25 I just bought. I do like the gun a lot.

But, my M9A3 is still my favorite handgun. And, Beretta will always be my favorite.

SIG lover here, but I love the Beretta M9.

Shoot it as well as any SIG. Like the appearance, as well. Unique handgun.

Nope, no help here other than to assist with enabling. I'm poly- (actually, steel) amorous. Beretta, Sig, CZ... I'd take any of them.

Beretta 92 series have been my 1st "go to"... pistols. Even before owning a 1911.
Admittedly, I have won a couple of amateur shoots with my first Beretta 9mm.
Sentimentality lets me like it as much as my only Sig .

Yes I was a Beretta snob and still own a PX4 Storm Compact (you are right, still a great gun), M9A3 and 96FS Elite A1 with Bar-Sto .40 and Sig 357 barrels.

However, once coming over to Sig there is little going back. I am considering selling the Elite A1 to fund a P225 A1.

Don't get me wrong, Beretta makes a really nice gun. The slides glide like they were on ball bearings. The PX4 I did all the mods to and my M9A3 also has a lot of personal changes to it. I still like how they look, feel and shoot.

However, Sig makes some of the finest guns on the planet and provides a lot of diversity. Lets face it, with Beretta you have, really, 2 basic designs.

Welcome to the fold.

I don't think it is possible to shake the "whatever it is about the Beretta Cheetah". Although not a fan of the .380 or the .22 in the case of some Cheetahs, the feel of one in your hand and in your vision is a true dream.

Yes, I also love the Sigs primarily the hammered fired ones like those in the P Series.

My real problem is I have a fetish for older S&W revolvers. I have them on up from the lemon squeezers, actually New Departure, to the era of the internal lock. I actually even own one internal lock S&W. There are still a few on my bucket list like the Victory and the Model 29 and not to mention a Registered Magnum.

So all the rest of you, count yourself lucky.

Yep, it's hard to beat Beretta. You want steel framed, yep, poly hammer fired in multiple sizes, yep, poly striker, got it now and oh yeah let's not forget some of the best shotguns in the world. But yeah, SIG and CZ also make some great guns.

When I first had a desire to get back into guns in 2010 I began looking for a Beretta 84FS Cheetah .380.. held one at a show 20 years before and was in love, but no money.
So in 2010, went to Beretta forum and all I read were posts about the Beretta was good but it was no Sig.. lol
Well, got into Sigs and a bunch of Sigs later I got that 84FS. But I'm glad I got the Sigs first because if I hadn't I may have just got this little Cheetah and stopped. Love this gun so much fun to shoot!

In the meantime, had picked up a 87 Cheetah .22.. one of the most beautiful guns I've ever seen.. imho. Real steel. But now can't bring myself to shoot it.

And yes on the hammer fire Sigs, when all the new and shiny has passes by me I like to pull out my P225 Montage Suisse with the Canton stamp.. the history is part of the joy for me.
