Beretta Cougar 8000, 8040, 8045

The Beretta Cougar series was introduced by Beretta in 1992 as a compact sized handgun for self defense and law enforcement. It was designed to be an a smaller, more concealable alternative to the larger Beretta 92 model.

Beretta-Cougar-8045

The Cougar series was produced in a number of variants including the following:

8000 - Chambered for 9mm
8040 - Chambered for a S&W .40 cal.
8357 - Chambered for the .357 Sig caliber
8045 - Chambered for the .45 ACP

In 2005, Beretta elected to discontinued the Cougar series in favor of new polymer framed models like the Beretta 9000 series and the PX-4 Storm. Rather than abandon the Cougar altogether, Beretta licensed the name and production rights to Stoeger Industries, which is a subsidiary company of Beretta. This model is now manufactured as the Stoeger Cougar.

I've been fortunate enough to test fire all the Cougar models. I'm a big .45 fan so the 8045 was my favorite of the bunch.
