Actually, it's Flyer to the defense... of the Beretta!
The Tomcat is NO POS. Heavy and bulky, yup. Beautifully made and reliable, yup!
It's the truth... the Beretta isn't supposed to have an extractor. It doesn't NEED one. Once the slide's back, there's no ejection port to toss the case through... just wide blue sky above. The case forcing the slide to the rear provides plenty of force for the ejector to knock it out of the way.
And, since the Beretta has the tilting barrel, there's no need for an extractor to un-chamber a round, either... just let the barrel up and dump it into your hand!
In the case of a pistol having a full slide unlike the Beretta, it's lack of an ejector IS a BAD idea.
I'd say the two pistols serve slightly different roles.
The Beretta is easier to use for women particularly, since it can be loaded/unloaded without need for physical strength, i.e., racking the slide. It's got more gripping area, and makes a nice 'house' mousegun.
For CCW, there's no question... the P-32 is the best choice. Nothing is as flat or as light.
But, I don't consider the Beretta a bad gun at all... in fact, if I DID, I'd be a total jackass for giving my mother a Titanium one with a front night sight for her bedroom nightstand!
