PX4 polymer grip is not as big as the Beretta 92 grip. It has replacable backstraps, and is the same size as any other polymer 9mm

Yep, on Beretta's site grip width is 1.2" and overall width is 1.4". This falls in line with the FN, XD's, GLock etc.

I have the XDm, FNX, FNP, and SR9c, with the SR being the slimmer of the four. Love my FN's though gotta tell ya.

The PX4 is not the club that the 92 is, but it still seems much larger than comparable pistols to me.

The FNX 9 trigger problem appears to be from a limited number of guns. I love mine, it is great for a lefty since it is truly ambi, and if it does have a problem FN will get it fixed.

Going shooting tomorrow. Will be shooting the USP compact, a 92FS and also a Kimber Pro Carry 2 in .45. First time shooting a 1911 so I'm pumped, been wanting to forever but never had the opportunity. I'm told his Kimber is not overly reliable to I might get some practice dealing with malfunctions, something we never experience with the HK.

I am familiar with the HK but anything in particular to look for with the other two?
