Thread Details

Bud's has the Beretta Neos for $214 shipped plus FFL fees. Not a bad price for a decent plinker.

You do have to sign up with Bud's website to be able to view the price.

Sorry if I left anything out...this is my first deal post. Big Grin

So it is possible to order a gun over the internet? How much do FFL fees typically run?

Is this a quality firearm?

You can purchase firearms online, but they have to be legal in your state and the firearm must be shipped to a licences firearm dealer. The Beretta U22 Neo only has 10-round magazines and I expect it would be legal in all states, but anyone considering it should check first.

Bud's Gun Shop has a good tool to find a FFL dealer near you. I purchased a pistol from them last month and it was extremely easy. FFL transfer fees seem to range from a little under $20 to around $30, but it's entirely dependent on the dealer. I found a local pawn shop that did it all under $20 for both transfer fee and background check.

As for whether the U22 is a quality firearm, it looks kooky, but most people who have them like them. It's generally a good manufacturer. Maybe some people who own this gun can weigh in.

Just took my friend's Neos to the range over the weekend. It's a great plinker! Comfortable to shoot and we went through almost a brick of 22lrs flawlessly. I have a S&W 22A and I'm still debating if I should pick this one up too.

My neighbor bought one of these for his kid's birthday a few weeks ago. Shoots nice. I am not sure if it was missing when we started or if it fell out during the first few minutes of use, but about the third magazine in, it stovepiped. After about the third malfunction over the next 10 rounds, I noticed the extractor was gone. They ran it back the next day and handled it with the dealer from the gun show (not sure which one).

Other than that, it's a quality plinker.

Beretta repaired it and quickly turned it back around in under two weeks. Works like a champ now.

Is this a good first gun for home defense? I want to purchase a handgun, as well as a 12 gauge. I am on a less than $300 budget for the handgun.

IMO put your budget towards the shotgun for home defense, worry about the pistol later. To answer your question though, I would go for at least a 9mm for home defense. Personally, I prefer .45 Smilie Not to understate the power of a well placed .22 shot... I just like a bit more punch.

Thanks! I have about $300 set aside for a shotgun, just wanted an inexpensive handgun as well. I also wanted something that my wife could shoot easily as well, as far as the handgun is concerned.

No. .22 is pretty woeful in the reliable penetration department.

If you are looking for a handgun and $300 is a strict budget:

http://www.jgsales.com/smith-wess...-3103.html

or

http://www.jgsales.com/cz-82-czec...-3050.html (note that this uses 9x18mm, which is a less-common caliber in the US. Still very effective and available).

or

http://www.jgsales.com/cz-83-czec...-5703.html (this is the same as above but uses the more common .380 round).


I've stopped recommending pump shotguns for home defense because 80% of people I train on shotguns will short-stroke the pump when any stress is added, and this induces a jam. Pump shotguns, unlike revolvers and most handguns, rely on quality operation to cycle a new round. I've found that your average person has a hard time with it. They sort of increase the chances of a successful shot, but they are harder to access in the home and are honestly harder to operate.

Whatever you get, make sure you get really good with it. Training is more important than firearm selection. Formal classes really work.
