With the right holster this is a non issue.I own a couple and I love Beretta, but the one issue with the PX4 is the safety decocker has a sharp point that digs into you if you are trying to concealed carry. Other than that it is a wonderfull gun. Very pleasent to shoot and accurate.
I have an M&P in .40. It does snap a little bit more then my Px4 9mm. But that's to be expected with a heavier round. Plus I have a 1911 in .45 and I would say it feels better to shoot than the M&P .40. But that could have something to do with the more weight behind it. Have you shot a Px4 .40 to compare it to the .45 version? Because from what I've read, the Px4 model is supposed to have less recoil than others. (Many claim that of course)dog2000tj said:i shot my buddies HK in .40 ... had more snap/recoil than the Beretta in .45. I also shot a Glock in .40 before I settled on the Px4. Plus I didn't like the trigger on the HK either, way to long a travel and reset as well.
