After a lot of reading forums and reviews I did a little trading with local indoor range (shotgun for this beauty) and last Friday picked up this beautiful Beretta Storm 9mm sub compact. I chose the 9mm over the .40 for personal reasons. As soon as the paperwork was done, I went right in back to range and got to fire about 50 rounds. No issues of any kind and was using Wal-Mart Swiss made RWS 124 gr FMJ. My wife kept calling me on cell (I tried to claim I had on ear protection, were other shooters and I did not hear her, but she kept ringing me since company was coming). I had been a little concerned about recoil with the size of this Beretta but absolutely could say it was not an issue in any way. After a VERY few shots to adjust, I as able to shoot a tight center pattern. One of the instructors from the range indicated he had never shot this gun, so he asked me if he could shoot. Took him ONE shot to adjust and he then put ALL his shots dead center. Obviously I look forward to getting in some more shooting this week and can follow up with more details, but for now, my impressions are highly favorable for this Beretta beauty.
