Range Report: Beretta 21A

Post by Sir Henry » Fri Jan 10, 2020 5:27 pm

Not a lot to report. I went with a new shooter and we only shot one magazine each at the berm. It was more to get her used to the range and how to safely handle a firearm.

We also went over the differences between a SA and DA.

Yes it shot flawless. I went over limp wristing befor we shot. It wasn’t my first choice but it was accessible in the chaos of the flooring project.

You haven’t missed anything. I had a Bobcat in 32ACP and it wasn’t any better. This is one of my least favorite firearms. I sold the Bobcat.

Picked one up last week for my sister. With the tip up barrel and the single/double action, it allows her to shoot without having to rack the slide and is easy to see if there is a shell in the barrel and unload if she wants. This 22 LR is a lot better than the cheap 25 acp she had.
Also have a PX4 storm in 9 and 40 cal. I like the single double action and the de-cocking safety.

If I remember correctly James Bond had one in 25ACP and it jammed so he went with the Walter PPK.

I have had better luck than Mr Bond. Been shooting Berettas for 40 years and have not yet had that experience. Have several in 22, 25, 32, 9 and 40 including the 22 "space gun". Granted the small rimfires are not for target just pocket protection backup but have not had a bad experience. I have also shopped and fondled Walthers for all this time but just have not made that last step yet. Still.... could happen.
