Both Taurus and Beretta supply cable locks by Master for safe storage. The Taurus system concentrates on capturing the trigger with a separate polymer block, while the Beretta system relies on a longer cable that feeds through the grip frame to the ejection port.
The Old World three-slot pancake holster will fit any Beretta 92 series–type pistol. Plus, the three slots can be used in combination to produce cross-draw as well as straight up and FBI cant strong side carry. Its thumb break design can be used for extra retention or to secure the hammer. However, we recommend reserving this latter option for pistols such as this Taurus PT99, which are designed for cocked and locked carry.
