Ok, I have to be real honest here. Two weeks ago I took a huge gamble and purchased a Beretta 8040F online. I've bought guns online before but they were all well known guns that I had handled in local stores or shot at the range before. I mean honestly, if you handle a Glock 19 you know what 90% of all other Glocks feel like. This purchase was different though. I wanted something different, unique and uncommon.
Maybe this could be part of the budget gun review series?
I've been shooting a bunch before, and for someone who has never owned a firearm I was a pretty good shot. My shooting abilities are getting worse and worse as my eyesight gets worse and worse, but nevertheless I wanted to own one.
The Beretta 8040F Mini-Cougar’s slide was steel with a dull black finish. Its cocking serrations were not very tall, due to the shape of the slide, but afforded a good grasp. The aluminum frame had a matte black finish and a hooked undercut trigger guard. There were serrations on the trigger guard, the frontstrap and the backstrap. The steel barrel was finished in a blue/black.
