    Is the Beretta 92 Elite LTT worth the $$$

    If you don't think it's worth it, what would you suggest?

    Get a custom shop CZ and thank me later! Come to GGE and I will let you shoot my Shadow Target 1. E

    Even if you dont splurge and spend the extra $300 to $500 on a custom at least get a shadow 2. They are the perfect mix of features for a full sized metal framed handgun. They literally shoot by themselves haha.

    Theres some Beretta undertones look for your self!

    The last thing I'd spend $1,000 on is a Beretta 92 ... not when I can go buy a police-surplus 92S for about a quarter of that.

    Here's the problem with this gun (and most other "customs" like it): rarely do these guns address a limitation that most shooters would bump into. It's feel-good eye candy on the best of days, and an overpriced lump with poor resale most other days.

    If you like the 92 platform, then cool ... there's a ton of them that can be had for half the price (or less). And, as is always the case, training and practice will do a lot more for anyone's shooting than fancy sights and a fancy trigger guard.

    The LTT has some features you can’t get with a regular 92 like the Vertec slide with the M9a1 frame. Not saying that is worth the price but to some it must be because it’s selling. I would rather find a Vertec on the used market and send to Wilson for their action tune. Bill Wilson’s shop does some fantastic 92 work.

    Good points, but the $250 92FS must be a unicorn...
    The 92S is a bit antiquated. I have one and keep it in the WWII era sidearm category with the old Star 9mm and maybe the P38’s I have. They don’t even share the 92FS mags or grips and there’s no real aftermarket source to speak of.
    Maybe a beat up DA only or a centurion in the $300 range, but the police trades I’ve seen over the past few years are $400 plus. There’s a reason that they retain their value.

    The later model 92’s and 96’s I’ve purchased had a few plastic parts. I found entire surplus kits on the cheap and swapped those parts out for steel, mostly because of preference. I don’t see myself buying a bunch of Wilson Combat parts to race one up tho, much less buying one in that format, but I’m the guy that believes a colt 1911 is fine the way they left the factory.

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct it———
