Congrats on winning a pistol as well
I shot the 90Two and Px4 on Range day - I won a 90two and I'm as excited as Shipwreck is about his win.
I was so impressed with the Px4 that I got one last weekend and immediately changed it from the F to the G configuration (I hate safetys on DA autos). It's an easy mod, took me less than 1/2 hour and involves removing a spring and ball bearing. There are instructions over on the Beretta Forum.
I didn't get a chance to shoot it until last night when I took it to IDPA. All I can say is WOW! It handled like a dream and stays on target so nicely. Hardly any recoil.
If you're considering getting one, DO IT! You won't be disappointed!

I have the .40S&W PX4 in the F config... haven't decided if I'll do the G conversion yet or not.
Thanks once again Shipwreck. Have you heard anything yet about when they'll arrive? I'm getting excited. I tried to call Beretta today but they didn't seem to have an appropriate option on their customer service line.
I heard anything from 1 week to the first week of Sept. The vendor here said they had 40s in stock, but the 9mm wouldn't be in until the first week of Sept.Originally Posted by swilcoxaz
On the Beretta Forum had a few winners there, and they were told the opposite.
The 40 is brand new, and the 9mm has been out over a month. So, it seems like the 40 would take longer.
So, really, I don't know....
Since it seems most of you had played with the 90two and PX4, which do you prefer? I am debating on which one to get lol. This will be the first pistol I own and I love both of them on their design and looks. I didn't begin to really like the PX4 until I saw it in person and got to hold it. I still have to go look at a 90two in person. I am planning on going with the .40 cal model. I guess I could be crazy and get both, but I don't see much of a reason to when I am first starting out. I would be all over the targets like this haha j/k
Thank you for your input,
Having shot the PX4 several times, previously owning 2 92FS pistols, and having shot the new 90 - Two... I would buy the 90 - Two. It shoots very well.
I just didn't really care for the PX4 myself. I had a cougar in the 1990s too, and it reallyw asn't a fav of mine either...
Big thing is getting a holster for the 90two. I have contacted Blade Tech and the guy didn't even know the 90two existed. He told me that they will definitely start making one for it. They would have one for with and one without the laser as well. He said to check back in a couple months. I'm pretty happy they offer a military discount of 10% there too. Unfortunately they take a couple months to make a holster for someone. I am going to get my concealed weapon license, so the gun I buy needs to have a holster for it. I won't be buying a gun until November though so there is still some time. Only thing holding me back is that I live on base and if you have a gun you have to store it in the armory. I don't want those people messing with my stuff.Originally Posted by Shipwreck
Well, don't know how it is there - but here, if the bank isn't posted, we can carry a CCW in the bank.
Get a safe deposit box. Carry it in a bag, and put it in the box after U clean it. Then, go get it and put it back in a bag before U leave. Most banks even have private rooms for U to take your stuff out of the box w/o anyone looking. Just put some stuff in w/ it to absorb moisture.
The 90-Two may be a big bug to CCW, though. I find that it is the grip that gives ya away - prints. Not the barrel length. So, the grip on the PX4 and 90-Two are about the same lenth. So, theoritically, they should CCW the same. But for me, either gun would probably be too big for me to CCW unless I was dressed in winter closed (2 shirts). Thats why I carry a compact P99 - the grip is shorter. Glock 26 and Springfield subcompact XD are all about the same. I usually keep my P99c in my front pocket of my cargo pants.
Banks allow you to store weapons in the vault? I know I have seen it in movies, but never knew if they really allowed that. How much is a small box that I could store one in? Here are some pictures from a guy at another forum that shows his Blade Tech holster with it on. http://www.berettaforum.net/cgi-bin/...c;f=8;t=001228Originally Posted by Shipwreck
It doesn't appear that you can see the gun. That is with a PX4 though. Seems the barrel length is a little longer on the 90two, but everything else is about the same. The gun may go down your pants a little more, but besides that it should conceal the same in my newbish opinion.
What do you think?
Well, I've found that pics are 1 thing - seeing it in person is another. And, comfort factor doesn't show in the pic. I don't really care for IWB carry myself - not that comfortable to me.
As fo rthe bank - I don't know. In TX, CCW is legal in a bank if they do not have the proper signage. So, if ya carry in anyway, what is the difference w/ the box.
They may have rules - but anytime I got a box, none of the paperwork limited anything on what U could store there - at least none that I saw.
Your state may be different as far as CCW and a bank.
I've never done it myself, because I never needed to. But, I would think that it should matter. Keep it unladed - maybe disasembled, if it makes ya feel any better.
A small box is like $35 a year. A bigger one is like $15 a year more.
If I were U, I'd probably do that, assuming the bank has a private room for box removal like some do. I have heard of other military guys griping about the issues they have w/ storing their personal guns in the armory,a nd then having people there use it w/o permission.
Can U use a trigger lock and store it in the armory, or do they insist on the key? I guess U might ruin the gun if you kept disassembling it and removed a spring or firing pin over and over...
I'm pretty sure they would allow you to keep a lock on it. Most likely make you. I just don't like the feeling of giving my personal gun to someone with a lock or not. I don't know that I will be carrying everywhere I go or not. I guess we will see when the time comes. I know for sure I will carry when I go on trips in my car and stuff like that.Originally Posted by Shipwreck
Well, I saw someone complaining about it on another site - theyw ere in the military and in the same situation - they claimed that people in the armory would routinely use the private weapons. And, if they require a key to the gun, that would be the same as not locking it...
Anyway, good luck.
I won a free 90-Two, and am patiently waiting for Beretta to send it to my local store. Can't wait to get it
