    PX4 SC vs S&W M&Pc?

    I am looking at purchasing a new CCW.

    I have been quoted a PX4 sc with three magazines for 459.99 and quoted a S&W M&Pc for 429.99 (499.99 with trijicons)

    I know that either decision will be a good purchase.

    The m&p fits well in my hand, and I like the trigger much better. My only complaint is that the magazine release is a little on the tight side. Also it is striker fired.

    The px4sa is a sa/da w/safety, I have heard that the safety sticks out a little to far, and it is a little chunkier.

    Anyone have any advice?

    Thanks!

    Jake

    My vote is for the M&Pc.

    These are two completely different guns. For self-defense firearms, I personally prefer to not have an external safety. I haven't held a PX4sc but it definitely looks clunky. There's a member on here that has one. Do a search and you'll probably find the thread with a picture in it. Try to rent and shoot them both if you can.

    Also, the market for accessories (holsters, mags, etc.) is much larger for the M&P.

    Being a squid I am more versed in carrying with an external safety, I understand your reasoning for not wanting one though.

    I guess I will take more of these questions over to the beretta forum.....

    thanks for the input!

    Both are obviously carry guns???

    I'd choose the M&P for a number of reasons:
    1. The M&P is slimmer/smoother, with fewer external controls.
    2. The M&P has a MUCH lower bore axis, and therefore less flip for a short gun.
    3. I think the M&P is lighter, but I'd have to check.
    4. Accessories are more availible for the M&P now.
    5. I would not carry the Storm cocked and locked, and I hate DA/SA transitions.

    My thoughts.

    Doesn't it have a slide mounted saftey? If so, U can't do cocked and locked on the storm.

    I carry my new USPc cocked and locked - but its much bigger than either of those 2.

    Jake,

    I just bought a Beretta PX4 Subcompact last week for concealment and I love it! I did have a little problem finding the right holster for it but I did find it. A Blackhawk 420208BK with extra mag holder. The gun fires great and has no more recoil than a stubby .38. Just my two cents as a "newbie". Good Luck!

    Someone on the Beretta site sent their slide off to be NP3'd and have nightsights installed. He just posted pic. Sweet.

    I think it's smaller than some of the other subcompacts - at least it looks like it is.
