    I have a revolver now, and I'd like to add an automatic to my arsenal. Lol...I have it narrowed down to the PX4. Good choice? If you had to do it over again, would you still choose the PX4?

    Would choose it again and again and again.

    The Px4 is a nice pistol, but I HATE the stupid safety. It completly ruins the gun for me. Flip up to fire is opposite of almost every other pistol, add that to the fact that its frame mounted as well.
    I also dont understand why Beretta didnt make it to use the M9/92 mags. So now rather than buy milspec mags for what? $15 each? You have to buy new mags for upwards of $35 each.

    If it used M9/92 mags, had no manual safety, and had a frame mounted de-cocker I think I'd be in love. But, for now I'll stick the the M&P and XDm.

    I would shoot an M&P and a Glock before I committed to a Px4. I really like the 92fs but the decocker behind my thumb is a major PITA. The decocker is something you will never get used too. I had a Ruger P95 that has a similar decocker. I never got used to the decocker.

    I agree with John Deer

    The Beretta is nice but I think you get more for your money with the GLOCK or S&W.

    What model where you thinking, full size, compact ?

    For just slightly more money (not much), try the CZ 75B or CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical...THAT is what a 9mm handgun should feel like..:D

    I am biased, I own the tactical. Had the Beretta (brand new) and sold it in 3 days.

    God meant the decocker to be where SIG places it. I could never figure out why anyone, who is not an orangutan, would want a decocker on the back of the slide.

    Right turn Clyde!! Lol ...I've never shot an automatic before, so the positions of the safety and decocker won't feel awkward because I don't have anything to judge it against. It would be about just learning how to deal with them where they are at. I'm looking at the full size PX4, and all I find are good reviews. Hell, out here in CA, I called 8 different gun shops, and all of em were sold out!!

    I don't like the PX4. Does nothing for me.

    While not my primary firearm I would never sell mine. Thousands of rounds and never a malfunction even with reloads. Takes a while to get used to the sights but once you do. Very accurate.

    I wish I would have bought the PX4 first rather then my M&P. I think its s great gun. I have the compact and im fairly accurate with it for still being under a 1000 rounds down range total for all guns shot combined. If I had the money I'd buy a full size in .45 to add as well. But I'd also like to add an M9 inox too.

    I have the px4 compact I converted mine to a G model with the low profile decockers I love it, easier to carry than my 92fs which the decockers on that never bothered me until I converted the px4
    The px4 is accurate and easy to aim combat style shooting it's very good and the sights were dead on right out of the box

    It just looks so bulbous to me. Not slim and trim at all. And do you have to flip the safety up? It should go down like a 1911 or an HK. Up is something I can't get used to. I sold a PPK for that reason. And that bore axis looks really high. It would be a no go for me...but then everyone is a critic and it's about you.

    This is the sub compact which definitely looks like a fat monkey. The compact and full size use the rotating barrel where the sub compact does not I also think I read that the rotating barrel lowered the bore axis but dont quote me on that. But in my opinion the rotating barrel gives it less felt recoil.

    Look at the new Arsenal Strike One pistol. You want to talk about low bore axis, this thing has it nailed. And it's nice and flat. No rounded bloated shape here.

    If it feels good to you, go for it. It's a hell of a pistol and tough as nails...ultra reliable. Had a Glock, sold it. Never thought about it again...wouldn't ever want to part with my px4 compact!

    As far as the arsenal strike one, its not even imported for sale in the US yet.

    I have two of them, the full size .45acp and the sub-compact 9 mm. Both are totally reliable, not one malfunction and I just ran 300 rounds of Tul-ammo through the 9mm without a miss.
    I grew to love the sub-compact because in spite of its short sight radius I shoot it as well (actually better) than all my other handguns.

    It does indeed look bulbous and its intended to be carried with the de-cocker in the up position, double action on the first shot and single there after. I would suggest you actually try one before critiquing you might be surprised.

    It's true, I might, but I can't see it beating the HK I have. Guns are so 'personal opinion' and I realize that. No offense and none taken. I have my favorites and certain features I value from experience over the years doing IDPA. I don't see many PX guns out there, like zero. It will kill people, it might work great, but it's not a competition favorite.
