      My husband used to own an SR9... Very very reliable,never had any issues with it but he chose to trade it in and get a 1911 .45 which is also AWESOME! I have a Beretta Px4 Storm Compact 9 and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it! I personally would say go to a range that allows you rent and try and rent and shot the 3 that you are interested in after fondling them and actually put them to the test in your hand and base your choice not on the money but the feel and position of them as you are shooting. Good luck!!

      I would ignore the price tags and get the one I want. I don't want to look back in 6 months when the money will be spent on something else anyway, and say "I sure wish I had ........". You said it was for home defense, so I'm guessing this is not going to be a frequent and recurring purchase. Get the one you feel good about. You'll thank yourself in 6 months.

      I went back and re-read the previous posts and see you made a choice. Good job.

      Great choice! The wait is well worth it. I had to wait awhile for mine as well and I am so glad that I did! Congrats...Enjoy it!

      Check out the Armalite 24 . It's all steel , 1911 platform full sized and medium compact . They run about 400 bucks.

      I loved the feel of all of them. The slide lock/release and the mag release were all good for me on all of them with the beretta being a bit on the bigger side.


      This is for home defense and a range gun btw, we can't carry here in Hawaii



      Sooooo for me the at this very moment the ruger is winning due to the price. I still really like the beretta but I'm now also attracted to the M&P9. I don't really know where to go from here as far as deciding

      How would some of you guys work this out the 3 I mentioned were the ones you were looking at too.
      Buy a CZ 75 DB

      @ warbird1

      Thank you sir.

      I bought / sold / traded guns for years and IMHO I now have a fine stable of guns.

      Now if you asked my wife ... she's just smile & say I'm crazy.

      my wife has the PX4, she loves it, I think it shoots very well. I had an SR9, liked it, but didn't love it. Traded it for a Beretta 92A1. I have an M&P 9c, great gun. Congrats on your PX4!
