GUN OF THE MONTH: BERETTA PX4 STORM COMPACT 9MM
Recently I had an urge to put rounds down range with a Beretta PX4 Storm Compact in 9mm. Now Beretta, as everyone knows has been around for a billion years and I must say that this particular gun is not too shabby. This PX4 Compact hold 15+1, I was shooting reloaded standard 115 gr. FMJ rapid fire, emptying a full magazine in less than 10 seconds at each distance. You can see that my grouping wasn’t as tight as I would have liked but it still got the job done! The trigger squeeze was long but consistent, with trigger reset comfortable and felt intuitive. I must have had a bad magazine because the slide never locked back after the last round was fired. The safety/decocker is the standard that you’d expect from Beretta and you need to be aware of accidental flipping the safety on, I’d carry this gun loaded with the safety off, but that’s just me, some people like the sense of having and actual safety to “feel” more safe.
