    Reasons I sold my Px4 9mm (I liked the gun btw)

    1) The slide was pretty difficult to rack just the way your hand grips the sharp edges of the gun (not to mention the curvy design doesn't give you a good grip), didn't like that

    2) The clips are VERY hard to load until you get them loosened up over time

    Other then that it was a good pistol. Easy as HELL to disassemble!

    Are you sure you didn't purchase the full size model? It's smaller than a Glock 19 in most all dimensions for size comparison and the G-19 makes for an excellent ccw..

    Glock 19
    Length: 7.36 in.
    Width: 1.18 in.
    Height: 5.04 in.
    Barrel Length: 4.02 in.

    PX4 Compact
    Length:6.8 in.
    Width: 1.4 in. (includes the decocker lever)
    Height: 5.0 in.
    Barrel Length: 3.2 in.

    I gotta agree. I must like the PX4's as I have 5 and will be getting a 6th on Friday. The Storm is what got me into collecting Beretta's.

    I never Heard about the PX4 storm until i started doing a lot of research on guns. After going to many shops and holding many different guns, i decided on the PX4 Storm FS in .45 and it is one SWEET gun. I feel that some people are very biased towards striker fired guns, they never give DA/SA guns a try. This gun fits in the hand perfect, is one of the safest guns on the market due to the decocker/safety mechanism and is also a great deal for the money!

    I love my .45 and have about 500 rounds through it at this point.

    I purchased mine for my second concealed carry gun. I really like my PPS, but I wanted a gun with 15 rounds which I wear in the cool weather or when I am up in NC. Now I have a choice in what concealed gun I want to carry.
    And I have no problem concealing it, I think it is a good size. I have also had NO problems with it at all. It shoots and handles great.

    Why so limited Interest In The Beretta PX4 Storm?

    Just traded my PX4 for a SIG. Had it for almost 2 years. Probably put about 1100 rounds down range. Never had a misfire. Didn't like the placement of the safeties up on the back of the slide. It always made racking more difficult, for me anyway. I also just didn't like the grip. Changed out the back straps several times but settled on the medium with a hogue handall. Mine was a .40 and I always seemed to shoot low and left. Okay that was me not the gun. Very easy to take apart and clean. I also have a 1925 CZ 24 with a rotating barrel and the Storm's barrel functioned well. Overall it was a good quality firearm, but I don't think I'll miss it.

    I recently purchased a PX 4 .40 cal. its the full size version and i found great reviews which helped me purchase that over a Glock. But after reading ive found the general public has had some not so good reviews and problems with it. The only problem i had was with the ammo i was shooting. I had TulAmmo, it was a steel casing and kept jaming my gun versus the Winchesters or Federals which were brass casings. Can anyone explain why that is?

    TulAmmo is not goo quality. There are certain tiers of ammo. I won't shoot that stuff, personally.

    Also, steel cased ammo can stick to the inside of the barrel more than brass casings can.

    I would really like to give my input on this

    The Beretta Px4 is a pretty good firearm, especially considering that they are just as reliable as a Glock or an M&P (if you have the full size or compact, the subcompact is questionable though i hear typically they work well also)

    However, the reason I got rid of mine was for the following reason:

    1) Racking the slide is awkward due to the circular slide and the slide safety kinda hurts your hand when you go to pull it back

    2) The magazine is extremely hard to load, I couldn't even get a full clip of 17 in my full size without worrying about them popping out or destroying the clip

    Its not a bad gun by any means, just there are better ones for sure

    I just got my px4 storm full sized edition and I love it! went to the range yesterday and put a few hundred rounds through it, no problem. A few of the guys there were intrigued with the px4. I'm pretty stoked I must say.

    I almost bought a used px4 compact in 40 but went with a Taurus pt 908 instead. I just don't like poly frames.

    I got mine and love it, even though I have not fired it yet. Planning on it this weekend. When I bought mine it was the last one, so I don't know why people don't talk about them more. I am very intrigued with it and want as much info as possible. So any insight please message me on techniques, kind of ammo, or anything related. Thanks

    I've only put 100 rounds through mine but plan on going back today to put another 100 rounds through this bad boy. I think the arm is great.

    Does anyone think the Glock is better than the PX4?

    Personally I do not like Glock's, I had one several years ago and I sold it after a few months it just did not feel right.

    The PX4 was supposed to be a replacement for the US Army Beretta M9, (it passed all the tests) but the US Army never followed through. I think that this might have made the PX4 a little unknown in its early days. Today, I think it is just poor marketing by Beretta.

    When we were shopping for my wife's carry piece, we both tried the PX4 Storm (compact version, I believe) and one thing that both of us didn't like was the safety lever's shape. The leading edge stuck out and away from the slide and when we racked the slide, the lever dug into our finger. We probably could have found a work-around, but initial impression just turned us off. Ended up with a Sig SP2022 for her. So far, we both love the Sig.

    No offense but it seems like you and your wife are very sensitive. sensitive hands, etc. I've never run across the issue you stated above with my PX4.

    Oh yeah and that is the type "f" px4, which I have. they have a few different versions. I'd like to get myself a Sig but im not rich.

    Actually, the Sig SP2022 is the poor man's Sig. I probably overpaid a bit buying it at the gunshow, but I took it out the door for $475 including the NICS check, so I think it's comparable to the Px4 as I recall. I really wanted the Px4 and other than our issue, I really did like it.

    Why so limited Interest In The Beretta PX4 Storm?

    I'm a big Beretta fan and currently own a PX4 TypeF, an 87 Cheetah (.22) and an 84FS (.380). I love shooting the Storm but find it to be a little "clunky" for everyday carry and I'm not too crazy about the holsters I've found for it.

    Also, in my defense, I didn't say the safety lever hurt our hands when racking the slide, we just didn't like the feel of it being right there where it was, probably because of the way we rack the slide. I like to hold the slide between my thumb and index finger from behind the slide. That seems like the easiest way as you can pull on the slide and push forward on the frame, which seems to work good against stiff recoil springs (especially good for the ladies). I've never really liked putting my hand over the top of the slide to rack it. On the shorter barreled guns, it seems it might be too easy to get your palm over the muzzle.

    There are a couple posts above from others that felt the same about it. I still like the gun itself, but when you find one that fits your hand and feels good, you'll know. With me, it's my Ruger SR9c and both my wife and I knew it with her Sig 2022.

    I feel that I'm qualified to give my observation on 2 storms, the compact and subcompact. I've had them for over 2 years. I do not have any issue with racking the slide or loading the magazines. In fact I like the wings in case my hand was wet, bloody and/or slippery because you would be assured of something being there to rack, or release the slide. The subcompact you can't get it to malfunction easily over 2000 w/o a single hiccup. I shot 500 rounds in one outing and didn't want to stop, I truly felt that little beast could go 15,000 if I had the ammo. I had an issue w/ the first run recoil spring in the compact, but has long been replaced w/ the new recoil spring and as well you can't get it to malfunction on any ammo. Both are exceptionally made reliable and accurate and are a pleasure to shoot and carry. Would I depend my life on either, the answer is an affirmative yes. As far as a previous poster stating there are better ones for sure? In my opinion, for the value I haven't seen any better. What is better? Brand loyalty and personal preference I suppose. The Storm line of pistols do what they are designed to do and do it very well, if they didn't they wouldn't be Beretta's.

    I couldn't agree more.
