They push all of the PX4 models at Academy. However like others there does not appear to be a lot of interest in it.

I read an article about the subcompact PX4 and it is a different different design than the PX4 due to the short barrel.

This is my favorite smaller Beretta, it is everything that the PX4 isn't.

Sometimes it takes awhile to get used to a new gun/cal. I've rented 2 sigs in .40, 92f and a G17 in one day. I was not as accurate as I hoped I would be, but if the range didn't force me to buy their ammo to shoot the rented guns there I probably what have gotten used to the them.

Model 92 Compact Version

I had a smaller model 92 compact. I qualified expert in the Army National Guard with it. It was a reliable and accurate weapon. I liked it's size much more than a full size model 92.

I have no experience with the PX4. In 9 mm most Berettas are easy to shoot.

Never owned a PX4 but I have shot the full sized 40 and simply put.... not impressed.

pX4 Storm SC

Purchased in july, and carried it w/ me on numerous fishing trips through black and brown bear territory. It got wet, dirty, dropped from waist level, and for about 2000 rounds I never had any complaints with reliability. Just recently though, after a nice detailed cleaning it had problems with jamming at the feed ramp. Retailer is sending it back to the manufacturer free of charge, and i expect it to be fully functional upon return. Plusses in my view are the smooth feel of the thumb and forefinger finger dimples, it's made in a america, no trigger safety and ergo nice smooth trigger pull from D/A, grip and clip combos to play with, and engineering on the decocker/ safety mechanism is brilliant. Safety decocker lets you chamber rounds while keeping the weapon's safety on. In this position the trigger is fully movable yet completely inert. Negatives. It's bulky, relatively heavy, and for the purposes of concealment good holsters are hard to find. If you're a fan of crossbreed fine, but two clips are too much of a hassle to use on a daily basis for my purposes. To anyone considering this as a concealment piece I would say that for the weight there are a number of alternatives. Ruger, Keltec, and some of the more service oriented pistols made by Taurus. Regarding the Taurus plug Beretta's new Nano looks a lot like the PT 709 slim that I enjoy carrying just about everywhere in a Blackhawk size 4 leather holster for glock 26/27, and oddly enough it's cheaper.

An old thread!!! I've got around 1500 rounds through my PX4 Storm subcompact and luckily I haven't had a single failure but of course it's my wife's gun. So it doesn't exactly get dirty or see lots of duty. Hopefully it stays that way.

I own a PX4 40. I sold my XD 40 and bought about 7 months ago. Because of the rotating barrel and low bore axis, it has significantly less recoil than my xd. Both were the 4" barrel. It took me maybe 300 rounds to get used to it, and by my third range trip, it was spot on. To me at least, the gun makes the 40 feel more like a .9mm. Its also a heavier gun due especially to the larger grip and mag capacity. (14 rounds with an available 17 round mag).

With my xd, I would always aim slighly low to compensate for the recoil and would bullseye the target even at 75 feet. With the Beretta, I just aim straight at the bullseye and hit it almost everytime. Practice, practice, practice. I don't notice it being particularly loud, but then again I usually shoot my 12ga and my .308 in the same range trip. I shoot the f-ing .308 (pump action, not semi-auto) and everyone in the range looks at me like what the hell are you shooting? Its louder than my 12ga, even with 00 buckshot.

My brother owns both the full size and compact 9mms and I have shot both many times.

I still don't want one.

Its not a bad pistol...but for the same money or less...there are better choices like the SIG 2022.

Thick and chunky and the safety is awkward, being way up there on the slide.

A better small 9mm is the Glock 26 or M&P 9 compact, if you ask me.

The typical high Beretta quality is there....but the feel is just odd.

I still think that the 92FS/M9 is the best Beretta pistol.
