When I first saw one, I thought it would be a good model for my wife. (My 8" 22/45 is too bbl heavy for her) Looked ayt some a t gun shows but decied to wait until the new Taurus 922 comes out this summer. If nothing else, the taurus has a more "classic" design. One item that the Beretta does havegoing for it is the possibility of the release of the carbine kit for it. Makes the little pistol a handy squirrel rifle.HoCoMDHunter said:Best of all, my wife likes to shoot it. She goes through ammo faster than I can reload it. I like to see her with a 22.
