A few months back I walked into my LGS and found a Beretta 950B (also known as Beretta Jetfire or Minx depending on the caliber). My first thought was “what a funny looking mouse gun,” as if someone took a shrink ray to a Beretta 92. After picking up the pistol, checking out its features, and finding out that was nearly 50 years old, the $250 price tag was tempting enough for me to take it home.
The aut. pistol of the series 950, manufactured in cal. 6,35 (.25) and serving as base for the .22 short pistols, can be considered as the real pocket weapon for defense and sporting purposes. To its qualities of particular lightness it unites those of precision, sturdiness and security, which are the characteristics normally recognized to pistols of larger caliber, weight and dimensions. Compared with the foregoing series, the series 950 B enhances the results of large and extensive experiences which are proper of the BERETTA line.
The Beretta 950 Jetfire is meant for deep cover. The Jetfire has always had a minor role, often seen in movies strapped to an ankle or hidden under a sleeve, but that’s where it really shines – it’s a concealed carry, back up gun. The .25-caliber handgun is reliable, has a high capacity and even pretty accurate for being so small.
