    My spring problem has been resolved, the newer ones should already have the new spring system. Love the way it shoots, mine is a nail driver and conceals nicely as well, about the same size as a G-19.

    I purchased a Beretta PX4 Storm Sub Compact .40 and it is a piece of junk. It jams on me every 3 or 4 rounds (I also checked the serial number at Beretta and mine does not require a repair kit). What further angers me is people keep attributing this jamming to limp wristing, however I was in the military and I expect my weapons to go through heck and back; mud, blood, one handed firing, two handed firing, wrestling, grappling and serious defensive maneuvering. If I do not have time to obtain a proper grip or am limp wristing because I have carpal tunnel; then "limp wristing" should not be accepted as a reason for failure nor relied on for personal defense in any scenario. If you are injured, good luck getting out a round or clearing it quickly. I can clear it quickly and efficiently at the range, which is great practice -- but not realistic for defense. It sure is a great looking handgun, the sub-compact size is perfect for a male to conceal and carry under baggy clothing and fits in the holster of a S&A XD Sub-Compact. However, I am a very slight framed female and must rely on a smaller weapon to fit under my more fitted clothing.

    The ergonomic grips on this weapon feel amazing...initially. I switched to the smaller ones, however they are still too large for me. If you have larger hands, then this won't be a problem. But for me, this weapon is just not a good fit at all and it is important to try and find one to fire first (in my opinion). Your warm fuzzy feelings might solidify or go away completely depending on this experience.

    Safire, the subcompact and compact are different handguns. The PX4 Compact was the only one to have the initial recoil issue w/ very early models and the recoil spring kit upgrade not the subcompact. Likewise the compact has a thinner grip as well. I likewise have the subcompact in 9mm and that pistol has never jammed after 1,500 rounds, it does have a beefier grip. I'd contact Beretta to determine the jamming issue, are you riding your hand high on the pistol, perhaps contacting the slide while firing? Very unusual the PX4 subcompact would have any jamming issues, normally they have a reputation of being ultra reliable, but i only have experience with the 9mm.
