Nice gun and great shooting, sir.......I'm curious as to how you would compare it to the M&P compact? I have the M&P and love it.

@ DrJason

They shoot about the same to me.

The Beretta is Hammer fired, has a decocker / safety - S&W is striker fired.

It just depends on which firing system you like.

Both are very nice guns. imho

Default Same as Cougar

I have a Stoeger Cougar which is close to the same gun with metal frame. Mine works great i think the rotating barrel really helps control of the gun.Stoeger Cougar Double-Action, Auto-Loading Pistol

DrJason, That's a tough one because though similar they are different. Size wise I prefer the slightly longer grip on the Beretta. Accuracy wise again the nod goes to the Beretta, it has a better trigger. That said I really like the M&P9c and carry it often. I think S&W in their effort to regain a share of the LE market hit a home run with the M&P series. Now between a Glock and the M&P I feel the Smith is a better gun. Comparing it to the Beretta is tougher and don't think you could go wrong with either. You could do like I did and buy both, that really works. I do like the simplicity of the M&P but I really like the traditional da/sa of the Beretta and feel it's a safer pistol. Bottom line though I have to say I like them both equally.
Monday I'm sending the PX4 Compact to Robar for their NP3 finish, while it's gone I'll be carrying my trusty M&P9c.
