Meh. He's mostly referring to the S&W M&P, Glocks, and FN Herstals FNX/FNP type pistols. Even the newer Sigs are showing some reliability problems from what I've heard and seen firsthand. The guns are simple by design and made of lightweight material. The Beretta is a great gun(I love them) but doesn't really fit the bill as to what you're going for with a BOB. The Storm from Beretta might be a better choice.

Basically, you want something that you're not going to have to fix or diagnose in a high stress situation. The 1911 could be that gun, but they have a higher rate of tunability, therefore things can get out of whack easier.
