    I really like my M9 and, I'm pretty darn accurate with it. That said, I'm looking for something that is a bit lighter. Also, I would imagine the polymer frame is more durable. I'm looking for feedback from those who have them. It would be used for the range, home defense and, occasional carry.

    Typical Beretta goodness, albeit with a rotating barrel and a plastic frame. It's cheap too.

    I fired a rental some time back. Reliable and accurate

    had a px4 once, when carrying iwb the gun did dig into my side a bit, but to be fair it was my first carry gun and i used a cheap holster. i will own a px4 inox in 9mm eventually

    I have the .40 version and highly recommend it. If nothing else, it's recoil is less than my 23,2022,FNP and M&P.

    I shot the full size 9mm. Recoiled less than my 19 (which makes sense because it's bigger). Pretty ergonomic, more accurate than me, quality feel. Not a fan of DA pistols, but the trigger was decent none the less. After shooting a couple mags through it (and several other guns), going back to my Glock 19 felt like a breath of fresh air... But probably just because I'm used to it.

    I have a full size model in 40S&W. I think it's one of the best polymer pistols on the market.

    It's the latest and greatest version of my Beretta Cougar 8000 lightened up a bit. If my Cougar wasn't so heavy it would be my carry gun. Take down is easy and the rotating barrel is accurate with less felt recoil. Fits my hand like it was custom made for me and I like the DA/SA trigger. I believe you can get the PX4 Storm in four? different configurations. Not sure if SA only is an option. My Cougar is an F model. I too will own a PX4 Storm some day in the not too distant future.

    I used to own one chambered in. 40 S&W. It never gave me any issues. It is one of the softest recoiling pistols chambered for. 40 S&W.

    I have three.

    I use one as a training gun and it has thousands through it with no stoppages at all. no finish issues either.

    These guns are very comfortable to shoot. They are small enough of a full size gun to carry without too many issues.

    great gun overall and are very, very underrated.

    A full size PX4 9mm type G is what I have on my hip right now... is obviously less confortable than glock to carry it because it is thicker.. but the benefits of a DA/SA gun as a CCW compensate that for far... no Failures of any kind, easier to field strip than Glock, very acurate and is beautifull... well... I realy like my PX's they are all neet weapons..

    I've had the ful size and sub compact for quite a while.

    Excellent guns. Very accurate and totally reliable.

    Everyone that has shot the guns like them.

    I use the full size as a night stand gun.

    I shot one of the range rentals a while back. I thought the quality was high, it was accurate and soft shooting. I'm not a fan of DAO. My fiance had frequent jams from limp wristing it. It was completely reliable for me.

    I absolutely love mine. The only complaint I have about it is that it is very difficult to change the sights on it. I finally got it done but it was a real effort. So, if you want night sights on one better just buy it with them on it and save yourself a lot of trouble.

    I have one. Nice gun. The 92 is my fav platform, but I like the PX4 design. Nice to have another DS/SA gun that works in the same fashion as the 92.

    My daughter has the compact. Very well made, excellent accuracy, and remarkably soft shooting. Fine pistol and an excellent value, IMO.

    The rail on the .45 model makes the framer bulkier than it needed to be, but then I get to mount the cool bayonet.
