    Beretta Px4 Storm. 9mm with 17+1 capacity. Night Sights, which are very cool, haven't had them before.

    Its double action only, which is a little different for me but I'm learning to dig it.

    Had it used at the gun store, I doubt if the original owner put more than 200-300 rounds through it. Not a single wear mark on either of the magazines that came with it.

    Oh yeah, I was lucky and didn't have to trade one in this time to get a new guy.

    Took me a second to get used to the trigger pull on it. The pull on my glock is pretty long too so it wasn't that much of an adjustment. And once I got it the groupings were pretty tight!

    No Jam

    However, must have been around the 7th or 8th magazine I put through after I fired the first shot, pulled the trigger for the second and just a click..... looked down and the magazine had popped out the bottom a little. Pushed back in and back in business.

    Not sure if I hit the release with my hand accidentally, or didn't put it in securely enough, or what. It was the only time the incident occurred so until it happens again I'm not going to worry about it.

    Interesting. I been thinking of getting a pistol for big cats.........just defense.......9mm may be a bit small.....maybe a .357mag.

    all I got now is a little .22 semi-auto baretta. Deadly on deer but you got to put it right up next to their temple (skull). This makes for a challenging hunt so I'm thinking larger caliber since I can't get so close any more.

    Ha. Actually, ideally, I want a thompson defender in a 30:06 but I'm dreaming. I guess that don't count as a pistol but I could conceal it in my backpack and then hunt right out my front door without drawing too much attention while I walk out of town..........


    save on gas spend on gun...........

    or something similar as this

    I'm in the market for a new 30.06. I would like to get a nice 30/30, also. Dale, I got Glock 22, which is a .40, for hiking. Bigger than the 9mm and still holds 15 in each of my 3 clips. I got the generation 4 and love it.. Might want to check it out. Here it is with my mini Berretta .22

    Here is the way I look at it. Anything that a 9mm won't take, a 40 won't or a 45. None of them will stop a bear, maybe scare it or piss it off. Unless you shoot it in the eye or something.

    Other than that.... with the newer high power ammunition out there..... 9mm, .38 special, .40, .45, or even a .22...... I don't wanna get hit with any of em.

    The Denver police won't carry a 9mm because they can bounce off a windshield. .45 will never have that issue. The .45 was developed to knock a person backward when hit. It was in the Philippine war, people would attack with a machete, so they wanted a round that would not allow the person to fall forward and strike with the blade. It has way more impact force. 9mm are too small to push anything back. I don't think 9mm and .45 are really comparable. Maybe the .40. With big animals the impact force is a much larger consideration. A .40 or .45 will easily penetrate the skull of any animal. I think the sales man wanted to sell you another 9.

    Dude, seriously, I'm not going to get into a 9mm vs .40 vs .45 argument with you.

    I am fully capable of making an educated purchase and I have reasons why I buy what I do.

    No one was trying to sell me anything.
