View Full Version : Some info on the PX4 Storm, 40cal.
Ok, let me first say that I'm not a big fan of the 40cal, it's half too small and half not big enough BUT I'm going to try and "get over it" so at least give me credit for that.
Now the question, PX4 Storm in 40cal, guess they're 14+1 which is good, mags seem to be a bit high priced but I'm sure they'll eventually come down and how many do I really need. I've been kickin' around the idea of a S&W M&P 45 as some of ya'll might have seen in the other area but I don't think the guy is going to come down from $425 and my budget is tight. I can get an "excellent" condition Storm for $400 and I'm sure ammo would be a bit cheaper too AND I'll be stickin' with a Beretta. So, what are your thoughts on this gun, yes, no, wait for something else? Thanks.
I previously owned a 40 cal PX4. The only 40 cal I ever owned. I only sold it with a few other guns to have a down payment on a custom 1911 back in 2008.
Great gun. If I ever wanted another 40 cal, that would be my #1 choice again. Lowest recoiling 40 I have ever shot, the Beretta 96 is right behind it in 40 cal recoil, IMHO...
I do have a 9mm PX4 right now.
Hey Shipwreck, glad you chimed in here. Looks like there's some Beretta hate over on the main General Firearms forum but I think I made the right choice. I really liked my 92F Compact and if the PX4 is anything like it then I'm sure I'll like it too. Need to tell my Nephew to start saving his brass from the ammo that Nashville PD gives him each month to shoot, that way I'll have some 40cal brass to reload. Anyway, see ya' on the Beretta forum where people appreciate a good gun. :supergrin:
Haha, no problem...
Here is a pic of a PX4 to make ya want one :)
LOL, I've got one and I love it. The rotating barrel totally takes the "snap" out of the 40cal so it feels more like a 9x19mm to me. This gun makes me actually like the 40S&W Ctg. :supergrin:
I have a PX4 in 9mm and love it. It's usually my primary carry 9. The rotating barrel is the ticket to less recoil. I would imagine even more in a .40. I actually thought about a PX4 in .45 also. If you can buy either one of those guns for $425 or $400 TN Frank, I think you're in great shape. I think the M & P might be the better choice. Stay safe.
Want to talk about luck. I called my buddy John in Phoenix, AZ today and we got to talking about the PX4. He said he had a set of RCBS Carbide dies and a bunch of once fired brass that he'd give me. My wife is out there on a visit so she'll mail it to me, that'll keep the TSA bunch happy since she won't be setting off their nitrate detectors with all the powder residue. LOL. :rofl:
My PX4 .40 is somewhere between 2500 and 3000 rounds of utter, never skip a best perfection.
I'll just be glad when I get enough rounds thru mine to get it broken in enough to settle down and start shooting those tiny little groups that I like to see.
I have a Stoeger (Beretta) Cougar in 45acp and it's a great shooting handgun.. The rotating barrel is really nice in curtailing recoil. In addition, a just got a PX4 Storm SC in 9mm which is also a great gun.. So far I'm a happy camper regarding Beretta/Stoeger.
I have one in 40S&W and love it.
