How many new model of pistols (BESIDES  92 variants ) has Beretta came out with in the past 35 years ? 

How many were hot sellers?

Seems to me they had all their pistol eggs in one basket.

Just some observations in my area,,,

I have one of the largest LGS's in my state 20 miles away, which are also a major beretta dealer.
Im in there window shopping and  talk to those guys quite a bit.
( INTERESTINGLY  enough, they just put in several wall size display cases featuring all SIG stuff. )
Also interesting, the largest LGS dropped Glock, I have no idea why.
The other large LGS also dropped glock after they demanded copies of ALL of his 4473's claiming it was for production research. They claimed it was a requirement to sell glocks. The owner told me he thought it was being done for ATF and He told them to piss off and now wont allow a glock in his store.

The 92's and 21's were Beretta's  big sellers in my area, and the 21's impossible to get.
Their polymere pistols are stacked high and deep in the used racks.
The Px4 sold like hotcakes for a couple months. 6 months later they were coming back. 
 
As for their long guns, they are just priced to high to sell around here.

Average Joe  is going to go buy a new mossberg shotgun, a new taurus pistol, and still have enough left over for a down payment on a new 4 wheeler.

Their CX4 had such a horrible trigger, along with the plastic  space gun look, they just didnt sell here.  :facepalm:  I loved the fact it took 92 mags, but  I wouldnt touch one. I think they should have designed it around an AR platform like JR Carbine did. ( which is what I bought. )
People here are just not embracing the whole  polymere or space gun look.


I wish Beretta  well as a company as I am a 92 fan,, but I fear they are in for some hard times .
And as someone already said, all those military M9's are going to be flooding the market.  .
And with them allowing taurus to make 1/2 price knock offs of their best sellers, ,, well,,  :thinker:

Just my 10 cents.

I had a young coworker ask me why I moaned and groaned when I squat down and/or stood up


my Wife (very much my "junior") used to call them "old man sounds" whenever I did the same.....since then, however, she's put on a few years herself and has just started makin' 'em - would like to say something to her, but, "happy Wife, happy Life".....

I told him I  couldn't explain it to him because he was too young to understand

I'd say at almost 500 years old, and being the oldest continuously operating firearms manufacturer in the world, they have seen hard times before and have obviously (and successfully) navigated their way through rough waters before... without sinking.
