    I took my px4 for the first time to the indoor range right out of the box and it is awesome. I fired 300 rounds with Winchester 9 mm and it is flawless and definitely a must have for home defense. You just need to call Beretta since it didnt come with the back straps. Very accurate to 25 yds. but then again, once I get really use to my px4, yardage wont be an issue. Very light and easy to disassemble and reassemble. I also rented a glock 9 mm and the recoil on the px4 is a lot manageable. Trust me, youll never regret owning a PX4...Im just waiting for my 30 days so I can get a 40 mm PX4. I cant wait.

    I just had the same experience as pogieeh. Ijust got back from the range my first two shots were within a quarter of an inch of each other in the bullseye. From then on it shot 4 inch groups with me standing. I have owned many 9mm nname the manufacture and probably 75% Ive had their 9mm. None of them came close to this pistol. I rate it 6 bullets. Go out and get this piece of art. It looks great, has a great feel, creative engineering, best shooting 9mm of the 13 to 15 9mms Ive owned including Berettas 92. I hate to use this word but AWSOME.

    I hate to sound like an echo here but I too must rave about this pistol. I have noticed on other firearms related posting boards on the web, just about everyone who has bought a PX4 is saying the same thing: in a nutshell, this pistol may become a legend in its own time. AWESOME is right. I just got my PX4 .9mm Storm and took it to the range this weekend for its first shoot and mine as well - went with a great instructor and class. All told, I estimate that I shot over 500 rounds, and the PX4 was a dream to shoot. Trigger has some play in it but not much. I have an old injury in left hand that renders my two small fingers basically useless. In spite of this handicap, I had no problems firing and holding this gun, and with practice can only improve.



    Biggest challenge now is finding someone who sells the magazines - I have as of yet found no one who has any in stock locally in So Cal; am leery of online distributors, but may have to go that route. Anyone else have any sources?



    I should stress I had not picked up and fired a gun in over 20 years - still I shot some very tight groups, and was able to hit targets at longer distances than Id figured Id be able to. Minimal recoil. The PX4 Storm will fit it in the Coronado Leathers concealment fanny pack (medium size). I am presently trying to find a holster to fit it, and it looks like Galco makes some.



    I couldnt recommend it more...just be patient, the wait for these guns is around a month right now, and theyve been release to non-law enf. since January I think, so that tells you something; where I got mine, they said they couldnt keep them in stock, they were selling out so fast.

    I just got my Px4 Storm the other day and it is really awesome. My question is what are my options for laser sights? I dont see any so far that are just for "our"" gun. Has anyone tried one yet?

    Whats up guys, this pistol is amazing, I was ldoing my research before i bought it, the moment i saw it on the Beretta website i just had to buy, the weight and balance is just perfect, took it to an indoor range and shot about 300 rds, no jams no double feeds, didnt have to worry about the barrel rasing up as i shoot like other pistols I have, one word to describe it "AMAZING"""

    Bought a PX4 about 3 months ago and have been nothing but impressed. I have the 9mm type F. After about 800 rounds and not a single misfire/jam, I am a pleased customer, yet Beretta hasnt really ever failed me so I guess I didnt expect anything less. For 500 bucks, it simply cant be beat. For those who would criticize the "futuristic"" look of the gun - its called innovation, get used to it."

    Several hundreds rounds and a few months later, I am still very impressed with my purchase of a 9mm PX4 Storm Type F. I compared the PX4 to several other pistols and shopped around for while before making my purchase.



    Without any doubts, I feel that I definitely made the right choice (except for perhaps I should have gone for the .40 S&W). The PX4 Storm has been outstanding because I have had impressive accuracy, no miss fires or jams.



    Beretta did not ship the back straps with the pistol as advertised; however, a quick phone call and they shipped them to me within a week. Berettas customer service was outstanding.

    I have owned a 92FS since 1987, I just sold it and purchased the Storm 9mm. It appears to be a lot more accurate than the 92FS. It has a smoother look and feel in a slightly more compact design. If it continues to perform and stands up to use like the 92FS, I will be a very happy owner.

    I bought this gun a couple of months ago. I have put about 2000 rounds through it without a hiccup! Shoots great and is very accurate. I love the 17 round magazine. Its a little too big for conceiled carry, but I carry it anyways because I love it so much.

    I just bought the Beretta PX4, G-type, in .40 cal. (14 rd. clips). Ive fired it on three separate occassions using Winchester full metal; Speer Gold Dot; and Remington Golden Sabre. This gun is awesome. Comfortable to point and shoot; well balanced; very accurate; and better looking in person. No jams; no misfires; no stovepipes. Reliable. Go hold one in Gander Mountain, or Gabelas, or your friends gun shop. Youll love it. This is quality at any price point. Notwithstanding, the price is pretty good too! Move over Glock and HK. Beretta did its homework.

    I just bought the Beretta PX4 Storm, F-type, in .40 cal. I have not yet received it, but I was wondering what are some recommendations for ammo, both target and protection?

    Just purchased a Berretta Px4 storm pistol. Took it to the range and fired 300 rounds of assorted factory ammo. Wow, this gun impressed me. I have quite a collection pistols. This did not miss a beat. This was as accurate as i could be. This gun is truly a sleeper!! Perfect function,accurate enough for me form 7 to 25 yards.It comes with three different grips to choose from for any hand size. Well built and easy to shoot. Outshot my Glock 23 40S&W with ease. Glow sights are really bright for a short time. Would reccommend this gun for anyone who is looking for a solid 40 cal. at a good price berretta did this one right.

    In response to bjislost, for personal pretection, you cant go wrong with COR-BON - and for range rounds, Winchester FMJs have been great for me.

    I had this gun for 3 months now and without a doubt it does have some great points, low low recoil, excellent ergonomices....but it does lack decent night sights, and finish is not anywhere close to glock-like tough..i have wear marks on the tip just from holster...and the nightsights are laughable...but change sights redo finish after awhile great gun..very accurate and you cant beat 17 round 9mm clips!!!!

    I got the .40 px4 back in July and put about 1000 rounds to date. No problems at all! Little recoil , easy cleaning. This is my 1st handgun purchase and I am glad I made the choice. I am in the Los Angeles area and these guns in a .40 cal are VERY hard to find.

    I can not say enough about the PX4 Storm. I have carried and used the 92fs and that was my favorite handgun for years. But I have to say this PX4 storm is by far the most awesome I have ever owned. If I was to find one fault it is that my wife wont let me sleep with it. And to a Marine that is important. PX4 Storm dont leave home without it.

    I have not heard if Beretta pans to make a PX4 Storm in 45 Caliber. If they do I will get one.. Earlier I made a review and somehow hit the wrong button, where it came out 4 and a half. I would rate the PX4 storm a 6 if I could

    i am replying to a question DUCKTWACY asked about looking for a reliable magazine distributor. i usually go to their store here in Dallas, but they have an online website and im sure they will be more than happy to help you find what you are looking for. they have been so helpful to me, i was looking for a high cap magazine for my P99 and was constantly running into 15 rounders, when i know they make 16 round mags for my pistol. as i owned one already. when they finally did get a shipment in of magazines the guys wife, (i cant think of her name at this point) put the ONE 16 round magazine aside for me and called me right away. she also contacted me by email and she even stayed a bit later than closing waiting for me to come pick it up after i got off from work. the website, if you are interested, is www.bigstatedist.com .. they have some pretty unbeatable prices too! check em out! since i found out about them ive bought all of my subsequent magazines from them.

    I bought the px4 just shortly after it came out. Ive since put approximately 1000 rounds through it. I like the inerchangeable back straps and I really like the fact that its ambidextrious since I am a lefty. The only complaints that I have is that the finish on the slide is couldnt be worse if I had spray painted it on myself and the front sight superluminova dot fell out on me one day at the range. However a bad finish and crappy sights are well made up for by the accuracy and comfortability of the pistol.
