    I had a 92 (40 S&W). Gave it to #3 son. It would throw about half the brass back in my face. I enjoyed everything about it except that feature..

    The 40 is the 96. Also a great pistol.

    One of my 2 throws the brass at my chest. I think it's the 40. Hitting the face would be annoying.

    I really have no idea how many times I shot the M9 pistol; never tried to keep track. Never had any problems with the pistol except, as has been said already, they tend to throw brass like a mad man! I can recall them going under both my BDU and t-shirt and burning my chest...always amazed how they got in there! Sometimes they would bounce off my ear or the brim of my cap and sometimes down the back sneaking past the back of my collar. They were accurate enough; the Air Force considered my prowess with the M9 worthy of a marksman ribbon (I think their expectations were a bit low) but I figured I shot well enough I could survive for a brief time if I was forced to depend on the gun. While I found them to be okay, though I cannot say I liked the exposed barrel, I never really thought enough of them to want one. My FNX 9 in comparison is quite accurate and makes nice piles of empties for me to retrieve, never bouncing them off of me.

    Just a bit of trivia. Beretta is the oldest (493 years old) manufacturing company on the planet and thee oldest firearms manufacturer. Something all of us should respect.

    More trivia. The Beretta M9 (92) design has been being 'perfected' since the 1930s. So it should run quite well. Ya see? Its another incarnation of Walther's P.38 design.
