You should really enjoy your PX4. I don't have one but have handled one and know many that have fired them. It's a fine handgun and you should get many years of good reliable service from it.



I own several handguns and just recently purchased a Bersa Thunder Ultra Carry SC in 9mm. It's one of the nicest, most reliable, easy to shoot, easy to field strip, accurate guns I own. The price of $300 at a gun show made it an absolute treasure!! Anyone considering a first or fifth gun should look at a Bersa. They're a fantastic pistol that comes at half the price of anything as good!

There is a bit of a difference between the PX4 and the SC. Being I'm not a big guy, (130lbs.) I had problms with the SC with FTE's, but I had none with the regular size model. I can't blame the Gun, the 300 lb Rangemaster came in and had no problems with the SC, but he could hold it like it was in a vise. He told me I could not let it kick or it would jam and also mentioned it was not a good Weapon for smaller people or Women. Otherwise it seemed to be a well made Weapon. Luckilly they took it back!

Thanks Buddy! I'll never consider myself more experienced than anyone else. We can learn from each other on a daily basis and that's what brings me back that often!! If we don't share the knowledge we all have, we all lose. I don't want that to happen under any circumstances! I'm glad you're here!!
