The Beretta M9 (Beretta 92F) is a 9mm semi-automatic pistol designed and developed by the Beretta Manufacturing Company of Italy. It is most famously known as the pistol that replaced the U.S. Military issue Colt M1911 .45 caliber pistol in 1985 as the standard issue firearm. It is also commonly used by law enforcement agencies and militaries around the world. Beretta's 92 series is chambered to use the 9 x 19 mm (9 mm Luger Parabellum) cartridge, a highly common handgun round. Its use of common ammunition combined with its many options and configurations makes it an excellent choice for zombie protection.

Functionality [10/10]

A Beretta M9

The M9 is known for being easy to disassemble and has very few moving parts, making it remarkably easy to clean and maintain. It has a robust grip and a comparably larger slide than most other 9 mm pistols, putting it on the larger end of the scale when talking about 9 mm chambered pistols. Regardless, this does little to hinder the overall functionality of the gun. Unless you are using an older model, the 92 series has undergone several revisions and modifications, making the gun more or less problem free.

Effectiveness [7/10]

For the most part, the M9 is your standard 9 mm pistol. It is semi-automatic, meaning the bullets can be fired in succession merely by pulling the trigger. Its solid frame design allows it to easily be used for bludgeoning (aka pistol whipping) without having to worry about the integrity of the gun. It can be equipped with adjustable sights and an optional 20 round extended clip to replace the standard 15. The only downside of the weapon is that the 9 mm ammunition it uses is slightly weak in the stopping power department.

Ammunition [10/10]

As mentioned earlier, the standard M9 uses 9 x 19 mm (9 mm Luger Parabellum) cartridges loaded via a 15 round exchangeable clip. One great thing about 9 mm ammunition is that it is everywhere. It is the standard caliber for U.S. Law Enforcement as well as the U.S. military. That means that in the event of an all out war with zombies, there will be no shortage of ammunition for your weapon. It is also a common caliber for home defense, so if you happen to raid a house for supplies, there is a chance that there is a stash of 9 mm ammunition somewhere. The downside of 9 mm's is that it has less stopping power than that of a .45 cal. pistol round. Nonetheless, it is still highly accurate and effective.

Portability [10/10]

The Beretta 92 series is approximately 8.5 inches long (217 mm) and weighs about 2 pounds (950 g). As mentioned above, it has a slightly larger grip and wider slide than your average 9 mm pistol, but the difference is minimal enough to be negligent. The M9 is small and light enough to be stored in the pocket of your pants if necessary, and can be carried and used with little to no effort or fatigue. Since the M9 is so common and is the standard issue weapon on the U.S. Military, there are near limitless varieties and types of carry holsters, allowing you to carry your gun however you wish.

Practicality [10/10]

For all intents and purposes, there is nothing impractical about the Beretta M9 (92 series) firearm. It is an excellent and effective zombie weapon. It uses common ammunition, has an average weight, and is very durable. There are several custom modifications available to even further fine tune it to your needs. Lastly, it is fairly simple to operate and maintain.
