I fired my friends storm in 9mm. It shoots straight and was very comfortable for my small hands. I liked the interesting rotating barrel. It is a fine gun. My friend says it is reliable too. One thing to be careful about, the safety is on the back of the slide. It is easy to engage safety when you pull back on the slide. This is also true for the 92s. The troops had problems with this. This could cost you you life. First, you try to figure out why the gun is not shooting. Next, you are fumbling with the safety. I learned to be careful back when I had a 92, but you need to be mindful. If you ask people for their opinion, you will get a different answer. Are you comfortable with the gun? Do you have the peace of mind to trust the gun when your life depends on it? My two cents? Ok, a dollar now, get a compact or full size USP in .40. I list the reasons in my other posts. It has been around awhile, but military and LEOs from around the world continue to buy them. Says a lot.
