Beretta trying to remain relevant by cloning Glock. Just combine Beretta and Glock and call it the Berock. ;)

Too many gun makers falling into plastic striker fired. Either settle for a Walther PPK (380?), or move up to a Browning HP or 1911. Give me reliability.

Barack would probably sign an executive order to take your Berock away.

Beretta should have just kept refining the original 92. Even if they're not the most tacticoolest thing anymore and their reputation took a hit from the Desert Storm aftermarket mags debacle, the Beretta 92 still has a loyal following. They should have put more effort into solving the locking block related problems and continuing to up the build quality of the guns, instead of trying to copy whatever is hot at the moment.
