    Most all of the 81 series Beretta's were offered in BB.
    They came in base model B, BB, F and FS.
    IMO they got it right with the BB. There is a progression of changes with each model. The best information or write up i have found is on the Beretta Forum's FAQs. https://berettaforum.net/vb/showthread.php?t=94273

    I'm back looking at the Gander offering. I need to call them tomorrow and see...why they are charging 10 bucks airfreight when it's shipped to their store...and if I can buy it on line or on the phone...wait the three days and then drive the hour to pick it up. The attraction is not having to pay the 20 to my FFL, but if it involves four hours in the car it loses the attraction.

    I've had issues like this after a few beers and four hours of sleep. A cab seems to help with the loss of attraction. But even with the hang over my 84BB is still a sexy little thing.

    I am told if you question the $10 they will waive it. Not sure why you need to ask though.

    "DANGER, DANGER Will Robinson" ...

    The 81 may be reclassified as a gateway drug. One day your parents will come in your room and find you've hidden Ortgies and Savages and JP Sauers and Walthers and Colts and Mausers under your mattress. Then there is the Model 70 and Model 1935 and Tomcat and ...

    Alright...you enablers... I am in the soup.

    Called Gander and they would not waive the 10 buck air freight to ship to their store. Strike one. I asked when the 3 day waiting period starts...when I place the order or when I drive an hour each way to fill out the 4473...to return again in three days. Didn't know...strike two. Tried to transfer me to the store...on hold for over five minutes...strike three.

    I can ship to a FFL that's 20 minutes from me that only charges 10 bucks for the transfer for the same price..10 bucks air freight and tax added on. That store will probably get the ammo purchase instead of the Gander outlet.

    $255.00 net before the 10.00 dollar FFL. Drawback..only one 12 round magazine...now on the hunt for extra mags...dies...boolets...brass...

    Oh..this bargain could get expensive.

    Okay, for magazines you know will work go to the Beretta site and if they are out of stock put your name on the "Call when in stock" list. Generally my experience is they get a bunch in and within a day or two at most are out of stock again.

    Yeah good choice. Screw Gander. I have never once paid a shipping charge on any ship to store item anywhere. Good luck on the magazines. Looks like it'll be a chore to find them and not cheap. If I have o pay $50 for a magazine I'll live with one.

    Yeah it's funny how guns creep up in price. After shipping and now taxes added, a cheap gun costs more than it should. Ideally buying local would be the answer but around here the gun shops charge insane prices, as do the pawn shops. The worst internet deal is still way better than them. Still very pleased with my decision to purchase the Beretta. I think we're gonna have a lot of fun together!
