    I’m interested just because the safety isn’t on the slide.

    I run my Vertec in IDPA, but I don’t go enough to be good at it. I enjoy being the only Beretta typically there.
    I’d love to run this in SSP if it meets spec (doubtful), or maybe ESP

    I was watching Am Rifleman last night on TV. (Well, DVR.). They did a whole segment on Springfield XD line. How it came about (HS2K!) and such.

    Rob Leatham was on. They showed him shooting a stock XD. . . E? Whatever their bigger gun for competition is. He was running a full-stock gun with an RMR on it. There was no discernible muzzle rise at all. And he was fast as F.

    Well, that’s Rob Leathem. He’s got enormous, strong hands, and very strong firearms. He can control muzzle rise on a polymer gun far better than most of us can control a recoil on a heavy steel gun.

    There is a reason he is a Grand Master and I’m not.

    True. LOL

    Watching Keefe shoot that EAA bullpup shotgun was funny in slo-mo.

    Lol not sure if serious, I am the first person to bitch about mids f***ing with prices, but on something boring like this, unless they can't make enough of them, the
    pricing is going to be pretty boring. Probably $1100-$1200 ish, much more than that and the market wont support it. Only way pricing will be retarded is if they
    don't make enough and the collector only nerds come out and gobble up all the supply.

    Usually when the mids are f***ing with pricing its in the midst of a perceived "supply crisis" like with ammunition, AR-15s, that kind of thing.

    Beretta probably should have come out with this gun back when Stoeger was shooting a Beretta, but maybe they didn't want their brand associated with his name
