Beretta® PX4 Storm Sub-Compact Pistol
Pros & Cons
What an excellent handgun. Beretta has a solidly built sub-compact pistol; however, like most guns there are pros and cons.
For me, my pistol has started to chip and peel. Under the ambidextrous safety, the paint has started to chip and peel in spots. Inside the pistol, the slide rails have begun to show the same wear. I have yet to contact Beretta about the issue, because I am still happily shooting and owning this gun.
Let's save the best for last, shall we? The pros outweigh the cons, astronomically. The feel of this Beretta PX4 Storm is unbeatable at best, by Glock or Smith & Wesson with comparable models. Holding this gun, you can immediately feel it fill your hand and palm completely, giving you ultimate control. The safety is within reach for one flick of the thumb and the divots in the front of the pistol are perfect for your finger while not in a live-fire scenario.
With that being said, the firearms shoots well and has never had an issue. I actually enjoy shooting this pistol above others that I own. This gun is a bit larger and I personally would recommend a smaller gun for ccw.
Overall opinion, I love this gun and would not trade it for the world. I will; however, be buying a different manufacture for my next gun due to the issues above.

very good gun
I have had the gun for 2 years. I have had no problems of any kind. Shoots all ammo well and is accurate. I do however carry a smaller gun in warm weather because for a sub-compact it is a little heavy, but that is probably what makes it so easy to shoot. Little recoil and a great grip.

I purchased the Beretta P4 Storm and have nothing bad to say about it. I have shot several rounds and had no jams or trouble. Shoots smooth. Fits my hand beautifully. When i first started shooting it i was shooting low and to the left. I talked to the staff and they said i wasnt holding it properly when i fired. My next time out i held it like they recommended and it was right on. I would recommend this gun to everyone

Not bad, just different
The true purpose of the firearm is to conceal it. Yes it's small. But the negative about this are;
1. The slide is a bit heavier than my other guns I carry
2. The thumb safety is flared outward, basically making the feel like its an inch bigger towards the back.
3. The thumb safety does catch on my pocket sometimes. This can be a real problem if you really need to pull it.
As a positive;
1. The "heavy" slide takes away a lot of the recoil.
2. The thumb safety switch is easy to activate when needed.
Overall, the gun shoots great when you have time to aim. I have tired rapid fire from the holster... Because its only a 3 inch barrel, is very easy to miss your target at 21 feet. Practice and you will know how to hold the gun to land the bullets on target. Since the sight radius is so small, even aiming, the slightest jurk will end with undesired results. Compaired using a 4 inch barrel gun.
But it is neat and different. I have several guns, and I carry this one about 80% of the time. It's one of those guns, either you going to love it or hate it.
