    I have always like Berettas, have always liked shooting 45 acp. It's only been very recently I have been toying w/ the idea of getting a Beretta 45 :rolleyes: I have a few 45's already & have been trying to figure out where in the collection this one will fit. I have a HK USP Expert 45, USP 45, & a Colt 1991a1. Is the 8045 small enough to be my compact?
    Impressions, suggestions, recommendations are all appreciated.

    My brother has one and he loves it. He finds that the recoil is very mild. The 8045 has a rotating barrel similar to the Colt All-American. As the slide moves rearward, the barrel rotates as the brass is ejected. It is a good, reliable pistol.The 8045 has a full size grip with a 3.6" (?) barrel. If I owned one, I would use the Cor-Bon 185 +p load and change the recoil springs every 1500 rounds.

    Hope this helps,
