I wanted a P320 but they were being total pains in the asses about giving me a trigger safety on one from the factory. They wanted me to buy one and then send it into the factory to get the option installed.

Ended up with a Glock 26 because of it.

I liked the P320 too, just was such a damn hassle just to give a customer the trigger safety.

They shoot great, too bad they wouldn't budge on giving me a tabbed trigger for some reason.

Why'd you want the safety trigger so bad?

My buddy has the Mod2, I shoot my G26 better.

My Beretta 92FS shoots like a dream though, no idea how anyone would hate them really?

I need something smaller and lighter. Either going to a single stack 9mm or go with a .380.

I love my mod.2 but it's a little thick to completely conceal carry when I'm only 5'6" and it'll be tough in the summer with just a tshirt. Right now my fat helps hide it

I just feel like we need more punch. Beretta is too small for what the military needs it for.

Just my opinion others are fine with the beretta and if i can say anything aboutthe beretta its super easy to shoot.

Ive done M9 ranges for people that have never picked up a handgun and got them to qualify.

I just like to see the change i guess.

AFAIK they're sticking with 9mm NATO, because, well NATO.


Probably went sig because it's lighter than the Dodge of a Beretta and you get 2 more rounds if I'm not mistaken.

The P320 is a fully modular gun, which is why I purchased this over the standard 226 as if I wanted to go to a larger caliber at some point I don't have to buy a whole new gun. I can buy a barrel kit and new magazines and in about a min swap it from a 9mm to a .45, .40 etc. I haven't looked at firm prices but the salesmen I talked to said it was about $250 for the barrel kit.

Same with the grips, by default the P320 comes with the medium grip, it has a small and large grip. The grips are about $50 each and again takes about a min to break the gun down and swap the grip out.
