    broke the px4 cherry

    Took the px4 ti the range for the fisrt time. Put about 150 rounds through her. Shot great very accurate. I just keep pulling to the left. But recoil is nice kinda snappy but controlable. Zero malfunctions. Only issue I really had was the extremely long DA pull. Not sure I like it very much. Its hard to tell when its gonna break so t would shock me and id shank it left HARD. But SA is crisp a little sloppy but nothing serious. Overall I like it I just have to get used to the DA breaking point and itll be gravy. Btw id post pics but i dont know how lol

    The PX4 does not have an extremely long DA trigger pull, as a matter of fact it is quite short and crisp for a DA. SA a little sloppy? I don't know what you are referring to there. Shoot a Sig P226, CZ75, Beretta 92FS or H&K USP with a stock trigger and then tell me how extremely long the PX4's DA trigger pull is? It takes much more to master a DA/SA over the consistent trigger pull of a striker fired pistol generally. Stick with one or the other would be my suggestion. The more you practice the better you get.

    Just how it felt to me. I kept anticipating the break on the DA. I misused the word sloppy, I meant there was a little too much play in mine. Ill shoot it some more to get more comfortable with the DA pull.

    Yes, the pistol is designed to have a little take up(play as you call it) in SA before the trigger breaks, or when you feel the wall. You're looking at a 3 to 4 pound pull in SA. You really don't want to have a target style trigger break with no take up on a battle pistol/self defense pistol, unless you are very proficient and confident. I once shot a Copperhead Snake's head off in DA(he was close). In SA off a bench rest I can shoot arrows in half at 15 yards and hair off a fly's legs at 10. When you learn where the trigger breaks in DA you can do the same. In DA just focus on keeping those sights on target throughout a straight steady trigger pull to the rear, as time goes on you may get better and faster.
