      Looks like John upgraded to the Px4

      That means the price will go up so if you want one get it now.

      Sorry - but I'm disappointed that he won't have his 92FS - I guess Beretta pushed them to use that instead - since they have cut back a lot on their production of the 92 it seems (in favor of the 90-Two)

      Oh well....

      I think it is just the times. This installment of the story comes 12 years after the 3rd one. I think they are just updating the character with new weapons along with a new attitude. I have shot a 92FS and it is a nice gun, but I must say the PX4 is definitely a better shooting weapon and it looks sleek and modern. I agree with the update.

      Well, I have owned a few 92s over the years. And, I've shot the PX4 a few imes. in 9mm, the PX4 was just a non descript DA/SA pistol to me. I prefer the 92 much better.

      Now in 40 cal - I was impressed with how the PX4 handles recoil. On my first shot, I looked at the slide again to make sure it was a 40 and not a 9mm.

      I will admit, that while I am not a 40 fan - if I wanted a 40 cal handgun, I'd probably buy the PX4. Then again, I've never shot a 92 in anything other than 9mm.

      The PX4 was designed to be a .40, it was modified to be a 9mm later. I think that is why you can feel the difference. I agree that in .40 cal the PX4 is in the 10 ring every time. It rivals my H&K USP Compact .40 as well as a good friends Glock 23. I am impressed with it for sure.

      Actually - to my memory - the gun was designed for both at the same time. I forget which actually hit the shelves first - the 9mm or the 40. But I don't think there was much time difference.

      So, I don't think that part of it matters. It's just that rotating barrel handles the increased pressure and recoil better, IMHO...

      I watched a webcast form the 2006 Shot Show where it was explained that the PX4 was made intially in .40 but was released in 9mm also. I will see if I can find the webcast and post it. I did a lot of research on this gun before buying it so I could be confused. I agree that they were both released around the same time but intially it was made as .40 according to the webcast.

      Why oh why would they make it a PG-13, that makes me not wanna see it, i was skeptical cause willis is getting a bit old, that it may not be as good, but i was still gonna see it cause bruce is the man, but pg-13, figures they make movies pg-13 now when im old enough to see it all why couldnt all the R movies be pg-13 when i was kid?

      I and a pal did an objective review of my PX4 9 mm and M9, and there is no discernible difference in perceived recoil between the two. That's saying a lot for a pistol with a lot less mass than the standard 92.
      I only have a 96D Centurion, so I can't comment on perceived recoil of a full-size 96, but the M&P 40 tames the recoil much better, even though it is lighter.

      What increased pressure is that?

      Yeah, that's the plastic thing that doesn't set of the metal detector.
