    PX4Storm

    I love my PX4 Storm in .45 It was my first gun and I got it in full size. I spent a lot of time deciding and it was the feel and styling that won me over.

    I wanted a DA/SA so I rented a 92FS at the range and found it rather large for my medium build & hands. Bought the PX4 instead and have been really happy with it.

    The one negative for the PX4 over the M9/92FS is that the accessories are not as common and way more expensive. You aren't going to find boxes of $20 dollar magazines at gun shows like you can find for the M9, but if you are ok with that, it's a great choice.

    Only 25 magazines! You sir really need to order some more. If someone broke into your house right now you'd only have 376 rounds to defend yourself with.

    I would advise you to stray away from the 92 unless you have some personal attraction to it. It is an old design and is inferior to most service pistols of today. It's heavy, has no rail (some models do), it's long, and has a capacity of 15 rounds. The Beretta Px4 is Beretta's answer to the polymer service pistols of today. It performs very well and has a good selection of holsters on the market (that are fairly easy to get a hold of). I think it is almost foolish to buy a 92 when there are just better options for you. That only applies if you do not have a lustful need for the 92 because it looks cool or turns you on. I think the Beretta Px4 storm solves a lot of problems that users have with the 92. That's my experience though.

    and is inferior to most service pistols of today. [Baseless opinion #1]

    It's heavy, [It's a full-size service pistol]

    has no rail (some models do), [Not everyone wants or needs a "rail"]

    it's long, [See above]

    and has a capacity of 15 rounds. [How many rounds do you need? Are you on the NYPD?]

    I think it is almost foolish to buy a 92 when there are just better options for you. [Really baseless opinion #2]

    I think the Beretta Px4 storm solves a lot of problems that users have with the 92. [I have had absolutely zero "problems" with my commercial M9]

    That's my experience though. [Riigghhtt]

    I had a PX4 in 9mm and sold it to buy a M&P9. I liked the PX4 a lot though. It wouldn't be a bad gun at all, I just didn't like the dual action first shot, single action afterwards. Plus I wanted something more simple, the saftey/decocker after I got comfortable with handguns I felt was unnecessary. It is a good gun though and I shot it very well.
    I loved the 92 though, and I think it is more comfortable to shoot. It is bigger and not as easy to carry, so I would really only buy one for taking to the range. Both the PX4 and 92 are really great guns though and a blast to shoot.

    The PX4 is definitely easier to conceal/carry in my opinion. But if you are not concerned with keeping your firearm a secret, either is a great choice. Recoil is about the same between the 2 pistols. The M9/92 has enough size to absorb its recoil and the PX4 has its rotating barrel design to manage its recoil. Both pistols are user friendly when it comes to break down & cleaning. Tough choice because it is hard to beat the feel of a 92 with Hogue grips at the range. Good luck on your decision...I say buy both!
