Just because they look the same doesn't mean they are. There is no comparison between the two when it comes to finish and fit. The metallurgy is better.

Taurus has a bunch of older gen Smith knockoffs as well. Decent guns but they aren't Smiths either.

Anything that nice by another manu for a smaller price?

What's nice about the Sig? Trigger? Sights? Function? How it feels in the hand?

You are getting into very subjective things here. What works for you may suck for me and vice versa. If you took all my handguns and said you only get one my choice would be a Colt Python with a 3 inch barrel. That's not a choice most people would make.

Yes, I've never shot, nor held, either. Also, I've grown up my entire life hearing that Berettas are jam-happy pieces of shit. Just wondering what the differences are specifically. (BTW I've heard terrible things about the Taurus semis too, but the PT92 seems to be well liked)

How it feels in the hand. I like that and would like something that 'feels' comparable. Nice feel, low recoil.

My buddy has a 92FS both full size and compact. We went to the range a couple months ago, and I rented the CZ75, which when we were done for the day he remarked that he liked just as much as his Beretta and it is about 1/2 the price.

Cool, I was looking at CZ 75.

Hell, I almost....almost... got a CZ 82 in Makarov over my PPKS 380.

The 85 is just the ambidextrous version, no?

Adjustable sights, adjustable trigger over travel, no firing pin block and a couple of other things. I like to all it the "target" version. The next time I come across one I'm going to add it to the collection.

While we're on the subject of guns I now want a Thunder Well. I have no idea what it would be good for but "shooting" one would be fun. I heard the stuff you need to reload one though is really expensive and hard to find. Oh wait, the gun blows up each time you "shoot" it so you have to build a brand spanking new gun each time you want to have fun. Kinda makes it hard to sight in but oh the velocities! LOL!

hk p30 (though similar price)

I think once you're accustomed to a given trigger system, the biggest issue after functional reliability is how well the piece fits your hand. How many boxes of ammo does it take for your strong hand to start aching? The CZ, Sig and Beretta all have different grip sizes, and different control locations. To me the beretta seems like it was made for apes.

Not many. Hell, my HK P7M13 hurts my hand; should have gotten the single stack M8.

The PPKS is very snappy, I guess due to the fixed barrel design. Hopefully a wood grain handle will help with that some, I don't want to have to get one of those wrap around Pachys.

Anyone in the DC area shoot sporting clays or trap? I am looking for more shooting partners. If you are interested please email me at Mauro@wolfvsgoat.com
I shoot at PGC Trap and Skeet. I currently shoot with another SF member we normally pick one week day and Sundays.

Best,

Mauro
