    Excellent video, and I agree with the author. However, the facts really get muddy without knowing expanding ammo verses non expanding. Seems like it would be nearly impossible to sort all that out according to caliber statistically. In the end I agree to fight your way to a shotgun. Just hope I never find myself in that situation.

    They are nice pistols to add to a collection, but I would not carry one............The Berreta 84's are fat with their double stack design, and I grew to dislike the whole platform.........particularly , the long throw to trigger and lack of over travel stop.

    I couldn't hit anything with mine offhand at 15-20 yards......

    Good Luck with yours

    Tom,

    It really doesn't feel that bad dry firing double action or single action. Actually, feels better than my S&W model 39 that I carry on occasion. However, very different than what us old school guys are used to carrying. A decent 1911 always feels comfortable, and for me a S&W J frame double action feels at home in my hands. In all honesty, I have most confidence in carrying my Glock 23 but I dislike it for many reasons.

    I made a tough choice for a 380 picking between one of those, a sig p232, and a poke. I went with the 232 but sometimes wish I had gone with the delayed action Beretta.
