I have a Stoeger Cougar 8040 for ccw, great quality for a decent price, flawless operation with no FTE's and no problems with various factory ammo or handloads and the most accurate out of the box semi-auto I've ever owned.

Default Stoeger Cougar or taurus PT809

PLEASE get the Cougar... I have a 9mm Cougar compact (same as full size but shorter grip holds 13 rounds) and it is awesome. Little recoil, accurate, nice trigger, easy to shoot. Stoeger Cougar though a known gun needs to be recognized as a premium weapon with a nice price tag. It is a bargain, not many people get rid of their Stoeger Cougars.

the Beretta PX4 has the same rotating barrel as the couger.
This is true. It's basically the same gun except the PX4 has a polymer
frame and the Cougar is steel. Also, the Cougar is about $200 less
than the PX4.

My Cougar 40 is alloy, it's just a Beretta now made in Turkey with a new brand, Stoeger. It's made with all the machinery it was made with in the Beretta brand. I just wish they made a compact in .40 S&W.

I have a Stoeger .40 S&W Cougar, plus a Taurus PT145, a Taurus PT940, A Taurus Model 441, a Taurus Model 431, a Taurus Model 85, and a Taurus PT101. The Stoeger is wonderful! Very accurate, easy to operate, perfectly reasonable to strip and clean, no malfunctions.
The Taurus revolvers are great - no trouble of any kind, sturdy, accurate, good looking.
The Taurus PT101 and PT145 had trivial problems with the magazine release's when I first got them, in that they let the magazines fall down a quarter inch or so. I figured out that the magazine releases had not been fully seated in the grip frames during assembly, and all it took was to carefully push them into place with my finger. Since I did that, in 7 years I've had no further trouble with them. They shoot straight, don't malfunction, and feel good in my hands.
The PT940 has never given me any trouble at all.
If asked to choose between them and only keep one, however, it would be the Stoeger .40 Cougar due to its accuracy and ease of shooting.
