The only experience I had with a Beretta was when talking with a trooper many years ago. They had just switched from the 92 to the 96D (DAO). We were issued the S&W 4046 DAO. We were complaining about the long DAO trigger pulls and he said the Smith was better. He then let me try the 96D and I had to agree.
