The Beretta 92 is indeed quite heavy because there's not plastic to speak of. I'm not sure where you got the 'quite a kick' part. The heavier weight helps reduce the recoil and the 92 is chambered in 9mm. 9's don't kick all the hard. Have you ever shot a 1911 45ACP? That's a kick!
I can go out after I haven't fired in awhile and pull the trigger and it doesn't fire and I say hey what's wrong then I remember it's not a hair trigger
has a lot of loose space to take up for the final pull/firing "hard trigger" That also might be affecting my aim etal
fired the 45 as a Regular army driver/TC on a Sheridan tank as a personal weapon back in the 70's didn't seem to my recollection that the kick was that much.
In the late 80'/early 90's my reserve unit transitioned to and practiced a little with the 92 didn't like the way it fired but sleek looking weapon
so when I was looking for a hand gun decided on it.
