Almost certainly known better by its military specification—M9—the Beretta 92FS is nothing short of an iconic semi-automatic pistol.

Beretta's 92 series has been the standard pistol of the Army, Navy and Air Force since 1985, and the FS remains one of the most respected firearms in the world. It's accurate, reliable and incorporates some of the most time-tested design features in the industry.

One of the most trusted personal defense firearms in history, there was never any denying the Beretta 92FS a turn as Gun of the Week—it was just a matter of when it would run.
