Found a Beretta 87 today

After lunch today I walked into one of the LGS to have a look around. Spotted a used Beretta .22lr 87 with box, manual, and two magazines. It was a consignment piece and it was priced at $1000 plus seven percent sales tax. $1070 OTD.....

The 87 looked LNIB and I was tempted as I have a 84FS .380 Cheetah. But the price was just more than I was willing to pay.

In my safe is a Walther PP .22 LR with an IE date code. Made in 1984 and purchased NIB by me in 1994. It is still in mint condition and I shoot it every now and then. So what will the Beretta 87 do that I can't do with the PP? Nothing AFAIC.

Besides, I have a PP .32 Auto and a PPK .380 Auto. IMHO the PP/PPK is the class act in DA/SA in small frame auto pistols.

And so it goes.

Talked yourself right out of it eh? I hear you though, so many guns I am not shooting make it hard to justify buying more. It is not time for me to actually sell any yet, but I am getting closer all the time.
