    I would not leave out the possibility that the gun was really dirt. The range guns often go long periods without being cleaned

    To clarify, this was in response to the gentlemen who had problems with the malfunctions with the storm at the range.

    I have never even heald, much less fired, a px4, but I am rather familiar with and love cougars.
    And my guess is that the lack of significant interest in the storm is similar to the lack of interest in the cougar. which still puzzles me by the way.
    I think a large part of it probably does have to do with marketing. Beretta doesnt seam really huge on marketing, at least here in the US.
    Another part probably has to do with the action.
    Like the cougar, the storm has a rotating barrel da/sa, safety/decocker action.
    In fact from what I've heard the storm's action was taken from the cougar and just put in a poly frame.
    While I love this action and overall think it is superior to tradition actions, because it is relatively rare there may be some hesitancy there to buy them.
    And as an above poster mentioned, it may also be that this type of action would not perform as well as standard actions under extreme conditions.

    I am a Beretta fan 100%, but I just don't like the feel of the PX4 myself. I really can't say for sure why, but it just does not feel right to me.

    I purchased the PX 4 Compact in the 9mm about 6 months ago. The gun is nice to shoot. Comfortable with very little recoil. However there is nothing compact about it. Even the subcompact is a little large for use as a carry gun.

    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.
