Beretta M9
The Beretta 92FS is a semi-automatic pistol produced by Italian gunmakers Beretta. In the 1980s it won a competition to replace the M1911A1 as the US military's standard sidearm. The Beretta 92 was a conventional short-recoil design, its frame forged from aluminum to reduce weight.

Users were not immediately pleased with the M9 as it had lesser stopping power than its predecessor. It was chambered for the 9mm parabellum round and only just narrowly won the competition because it was rather costly.

It has remained in service with the US military and its branches but it is due to be possibly replaced sometime around 2012-2013.
