The 92 family brought on what would later become known as the wonder 9s (high capacity 9mm). Beretta brought to the 92 to the table in 1975. In 1985 the US Army selected it as their primary hand gun and remains so to this day; other agencies and Law enforcement have also selected the 92 family. The 92 gets a bad rap for being heavy and big. If you place a Glock 17 next to a 92 you will find the 92 is about one inch longer than the G17, the same is true for most full size guns as well. As for weight the 92 set the standard for full sized hand gun weight reduction by using aircraft aluminum and open receiver. The 92fs is 34 ounces when compared to my subcompact hand gun at 26 ounces its just not that noticeable. Also I think you will find the balance on a 92 second to none. So can you conceal a 92fs, yes, just as well as any full size hand gun? Important words Full sized. As for design its hard to find a move even today that doesnt have a 92fs in it. The design looks as fresh today as it did in 1975. As of this review the 92fs is priced very reasonable across the US when comparing features, reliability, safety, accuracy, fit and finish to other providers of top tier hand gun. The 92fs is the flagship of the Beretta line up for a reason. There are a lot of makers of fine hand guns out there and the 92fs should be on your try list.
