Beretta 9000S Gun Holsters
The Beretta 9000S was Beretta's first entry to the
polymer frame handgun market. It seemed to be the first pistol that Beretta ever produced that was specially
targeted for sales within the U.S. Nearly all prior Beretta handguns were created for military or police use. The
9000S was made to compete in the growing concealed carry market that stemmed in the U.S. legislation that allowed
states to issue concealed carry permits.
The frame from the 9000S is very compact and made from the
reinforced polymer material to lessen the load. Originally, Beretta had planned on using an even smaller frame, but
later designed to proceed to a slightly larger model as initial testing demonstrated some grip complaints due the
shortened frame. The 9000S was also the first Beretta handgun that featured a tilt down barrel locking mechanism
based somewhat about the original John Browning design.
Beretta took a somewhat different approach when it comes to
caliber, and released the .40 caliber version towards the market first in 2001. Apparently, they felt that the .40
caliber was becoming extremely popular and would surpass the 9mm as a concealed carry round. The 9mm version
followed in 2002 and was just as popular since the .40 cal version. The 9mm version will carry 12 1 rounds as the
.40 cal. model will carry 10 1. Since the 9000S frame is sort of compact, Beretta added a feature to the magazine
floor plate so it has a drop down tab that extends it's length. This feature is nice for shooters with larger
hands, who may prefer the added length.
Since 2001, Beretta has released two variations of the 9000S
series, a "D" model and an "F" model. The D model was the first one to be released and only functioned in a double
action capacity. The F model was launched in 2004 and allowed the handgun to work as whether double action weapon
or perhaps a single action weapon. The F model featured a decocker/safety lever that resembled one found for a
passing fancy action weapon just like a Colt 1911 or other John Browning design.
Some Beretta pistols are fairly easy to consider apart, Beretta
went the extra strike the 9000S. Field striping the 9000S takes a few seconds and can be done with no tools. The
pistol quickly breaks down into 4 parts including: Frame, Slide, Barrel, and main spring.
Although Beretta no longer produces the 9000S there are many
thousands still in circulation. The 9000S was Tom Cruise's weapon of choice in the 2002 movie "The Minority
