Great pistol. Good ergonomics. Lessened perceived recoil. Well engineered, as are most things Italian, including me.

HA! A fellow Italian!

I had hard, hard time choosing between my recent Glock Purchase (17) and the PX4 storm and I still want the PX4. Have you used the PX4 for CCW/Carry? How is it on the range? I really want the PX4 and when I have enough money I might just pick one up anyway because the family has a couple of CX4's that we use interchangeably. Sorry for the bombardment of questions ha

I have three px4. 2 9mm and an inox 40.

I carry the 9mm as an every day gun and have a practice/range gun.

The range gun has 1000+ rds through it and has been perfect.

My carry gun has 500-600 rds through it with no issues.

I haven't fired the inox 40 yet (I just got it a few days ago) but I've hand cycled alot with snap caps and ammo and it seems to feed and eject just fine.

I was carrying a glock full time. I moved over to the px4 because of the recent problems with G19 and I have a late model gen 3. The g17 and g22 are to big.

The px4 seems to have no lingering qc issues which is exceptionally rare these days.

I use a desantis holster.

I've come to really like the px4. it conceals very well for a full size gun.

I'm quicker out of a holster and on target than my g19.

I researched it heavily before going in on two 9mms. I could not find but a very small number of complaints about the full size 9mm going back to 2004 when it was released (searching on berettaforum.net).

I highly recommend it.

I don't own one, but I am currently struggling with whether or not to make one my next handgun purchase. I like the ergonomics of it, the trigger is good, and it is an awfully pretty pistol. The only consistent downside that I have come across in reviews is that the mags are really hard to top off. Go ahead and get one and let us know how it is.

I have PX4 40 Full Size Type G. If you like DA/SA hammer fired pistols, you will love this one. Can't go wrong with a Beretta.

I had the PX4 Storm SC in 9mm and loved it. I traded it off because I needed a smaller carry gun at the time, but I plan on getting another one along with a full size or/and compact model. Smooth trigger, easy takedown and no problems with mine in the 400 or so rounds I put through it.

Beretta dropped the ball on the sub, IMO. They should have made the barrel/slide longer and the grip shorter. I don't need 13 round 9mm capacity in a subcompact! But I'd definitely like longer than a 3" barrel. My tiny PM9 has a 3" barrel, FCOL.

I guess they couldn't have made the grip shorter because of the height of the slide and the trigger guard... you wouldn't have anything left to wrap your fingers around!

I have a px4 9mm compact, 40 compact which I got 2-2 and I have a subcompact 9mm. I have IWB Kholsters for all of them. The 40 will be my main carry, I'll be getting rid of some guns shortly.

I have one in 9mm. One of the few guns I have that I wouldn't sell, or trade.

Here are a few threads with a bunch of owner and user reviews, which are overwhelmingly very positive. I've been very impressed with the PX4s I've shot.

I bought two PX4 Storms last year, but to only trade them for Glocks. In my opinion the PX4 Storm line is one of the best recently released pistols! It's everything (and more) as the previous posters mentioned...

I traded my PX4 Storm subcompact .40 for a Glock Gen4 26 because of:
• Size - The PX4 Storm is slightly heavier and chunkier the G26 and G27.
• The safety lever - My safety lever was a bit to sharp for me to carry.
• Magazines - The cost of Beretta's magazine = $35.00 plus. Glock's standard magazine = $20.00. Glock also offered high capacity mags.

I traded my PX4 Storm .45 for the Gen4 G21 because of:
• Size - Same reason as above
• The safety lever - Same reason as above
• Magazine - Both cost and better capacity from Glock's magazine. 10-vs-13

The Beretta Storm is one hell of a pistol, and I would strongly encourage anyone seeking a new pistol to consider it. I traded mine out of preference and not because of the lack of performance.

I acquired mine on a trade. It's a soft shooting 9mm with a 17+1 capacity in my Compact. I like the rotating. Barrel. Easy to to field strip/clean. Fun to shoot. It's a solid reliable gun that has no major issues. Feeds anything. I enjoy mine. Mags are expensive so I'd give it 4/5 stars.

It's my only 9mm, right now. The XDM 9mm is coming next week. Then I'll have a comparison.
