    My advise is rent one shoot it and see if it fits you and your needs.

    I don't know of any problems with them. I just got one and I love it. I put around 200 rounds thru it on Saturday without a problem

    The problem is finding a place that rents anything other than Glocks!

    The PX4 sure is a neat looking gun, however. Beretta has an Italian design house do the designs on thier firearms these days and the result are guns that look advanced, elegant - not clunky (no slam at you Glock or M&P guys.)

    I read somewhere that the rotating barrel made it somewhat torque-y. Maybe not ideal for one handed shooting.

    That's because Glocks are so durable! As for the PX4, I've heard lots of good things about them but I haven't shot one yet. I did handle one at a gunshop though, it felt nice but I wouldn't buy it without shooting it.

    P.S. I am not a Glockophile, don't like the grip or trigger. One must give credit due where it is due.

    True ,But I'd bet they are rented out more, because they cost the dealers a dime a dozen, more than for durability

    I just recently bought a PX4 and have put 400 rounds through it without any problems. The gun is fantastic and shoots very accurately. This was my first handgun but I tried many guns before this. The last gun I tried was a Beretta 92 and absolutely loved it. This made me start looking at Beretta and after hours of research on the internet I made the decision on the PX4 without even trying it. It just felt right in my hand and it was the best decision I made.

    I held one the other day and it felt good. Never heard anything bad about them and it's on my shopping list.

    I hadn't thought of that but it's probably true. Yet another genius marketing ploy by Ol' Gaston.

    My thoughts on the PX4

    I've had this gun for a couple weeks and I've put 200 rounds through it. I have not had any issues with the mechanics of it. I'm used to guns with longer site radius so it took me some getting used to before I could get any real accuracy out of it, but my last trip to the range yielded good results. I also had trouble getting used to the night sites. I think I agree with some that say the dots are distracting when the lighting conditions don't make them and asset.
    I am happy with this purchase overall. It feels good in my hand and the design is very nice. The muzzle flip is controlable in the .40 S&W that I have. I'm a fan of real craftsmanship so naturally being a polymer frame gun there are some areas I'd like to see improved. The gun could really use a steel guide rod. I find a bit of play at the front of the slide. If you hold the gun by the grip and wiggle the front of the slide laterally you'll see what I mean. The slide rails on the frame like a lot of polymer guns are just four metal tabs molded into the frame. They seem sturdy enough, but just for the sake of my own confidence I'd like to see something a bit more robust keeping the slide mounted to the frame.

    I have enjoyed shooting the gun and get really good groups out of it for a service weapon.

    On a bad note, however, I have now had two of them requiring a shipment back to Beretta for service.

    I liked mine overall but both myself and the local rangemaster found it had a lot of muzzle flip for a 9mm. Also calling them night sights is a stretch, they have to be exposed to light like the old luminous watches. If you do pick one up I understand meprolight is making replacement sights.

    "Is the PX4 as bad as some say?"

    That sounds like a loaded question to me.

    I have heard nothing but rave reviews from the PX4 community. I almost bought one, but the decocker/safety mechanism rubbed my the wrong way when I slingshotted the slide. I may still get one, but it will be my fifth handgun or something like that.

    Right now, I am looking hard at a Sig P239 SAS in 9mm. It will be my primary carry piece. I would like a longer gun for home defense with a rail and laser. I also want a Kel Tec. By the time I get all of these guns purchased...I may consider the PX4.

    I also want an AR-15 before the prices start to soar. If the AWB ever gets out of committee...expect to see assault rifle prices going through the roof.

    Px4

    This gun has really grown on me. It stands up well compared to other polymer guns and I love the ease of field stripping and assembly for cleaning. It is now my primary home defense gun and the only one that is always loaded and ready. I have complete faith in it to function reliably. I have a light/laser mounted now. If I didn't have the light laser combo I'd throw some Trijicon sights on it.
