New-to-me Beretta 96fs
« on: June 08, 2018, 06:55:15 PM »
This is my first 40 cal Beretta. Can't wait to shoot it for the first time Monday. What is nice is that its an older Beretta with all metal components.

Gonna shoot my Beretta tomorrow haven’t had it out in awhile.
1954 vintage straight out o italy.
Me pops brought it back when he was in the USN.
22 cal with 3 and 6 inch barrels.
 My uncle to this day carries a .22 slug courtesy of it way back around 57/58

Fell out of shoulder holster when he leaned over the car and it has no drop safety landed on the hammer with round in chamber.
Too close to his pump to remove it so it stays.

Was purely an accident.
He had not hooked the retaining strap on the holster.

FYI holster is no longer around.

He had a lot of things happen as a young man.

He has a glass eye from taking an arrow in the eye when he and his friend were shooting 1 arrow up and across a field to each other. Needless to say he didnt always think things through but he turned out to be a dam good engineer/machinist.

yep, "things" like this usually are "an accident"

his younger days "happenings" are irrelevant to his stupidity - I hope they fire his butt

(bet he wishes his glass eye came out and hit the on-looker in the leg vs his shooting him  :th_thicon_lol:)

Well FYI He is in late stages of Parkinson’s but hey your heart felt assholeness is duly noted.

Hope you never suffer an accident.

Have a good day.
