My assignments and adventures (often one in the same) lead to remote hunting trips, fishing excursions or just plain camping.

From Beretta - Beretta Releases Limited Editions of Iconic 90 Series Pistols
The Beretta M9 and 92FS are among the most widely recognized firearms in history, and the most notable models from Beretta’s iconic 90 Series. The Beretta 92 was submitted in 1980 for the XM9 program conducted by the U.S. Military to seek out a replacement for the M1911.
During a five-year testing period these pistols were subjected to the most extensive military pistol test program ever conducted. In 1985, the Beretta M9 – a model from the legendary 90 Series, was adopted as the official sidearm of the U.S. Military and has served there ever since.
Beretta has produced many variants of the 90 Series since then and today is very excited to announce it will manufacture a limited number of selected models from this iconic series.
