Default Beretta PX4 Compact revisited

I did an earlier range report on my Beretta PX4 Compact afterwhich I sent it to Robar for their NP3 electroless nickle finish. Here is how it turned out, plus a YouTube link ringing it out at the range.

I have 600 troublefree rounds thru my Compact now and feel comfortable enough to start carrying it. Of all the PX4s I've owned the new Compact is by far my favorite version.

Looks good!

How will you carry it?

Probably in an IWB holster once I find one I like. I have carried it in a vest designed for concealed carry with two hidden pockets, this works great for cold weather.

Nice looking Beretta.

I really like the two tone job you had done.

Thanks Don, it not only looks better but the NP3 finish is smoother and self lubricating which really enhances performance and reliability.

Experimenting with different loads for my PX4 Compact, all of which were 100% reliable, I settled on 3 for carry.
Winchester 147 grn PDX1
Federal 147 grn HST
Corbon 115 grn DPX
The Corbon which is a newer load was very impressive vs the marauding waterjug.
