From what I've read, the Beretta 85 is not as nice as the 84 which it replaced.
The BHP is a legendary pistol, feels like it was made for whoever picks one up.
The trigger can be improved by removing the mag safety, but will never equal a tuned 1911 trigger. If it's got the ring type "commander" hammer, people with large hands will get bitten. I think they're too heavy for a 9mm,(sorry Mr. Camp) but the slim design make them easy to conceal.
The tiny safeties on even some later models are a pita.
SoCal prices might warrant a grand for both of them.
