Beretta Px4 Storm as first gun?
I am looking to purchase my first handgun, and I'm considering the Beretta Px4 Storm 9mm. I mainly plan to use the gun for target/sport shooting, and perhaps for local competition down the road. I have tried the Glock 17, but found the slide lock small and difficult to manipulate, and did not like the fact that there was no safety (especially since I intend to use this for target shooting at the range, rather than for home defense or concealed carry). For the sake of accuracy at the range, I'm leaning toward a DA/SA (like the Beretta) or a SA trigger. I'm leaning towards 9mm because it will be cheaper to shoot than .40 S&W or .45ACP (but much more substantial than .22). Any suggestions? Any brands/models that you'd recommend I'd consider over the Beretta Storm? Thanks!
