Beretta Announces PX-4 Storm Subcompact

Normally I wouldn't participate in so outright an advertisement for Beretta such as The Shooting Wire has done, but if it brings just one new shooter into the fold its worth it.

"Beretta USA is pleased to announce the introduction of the most advanced Sub-Compact sidearm of its kind – the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact pistol. Built around Beretta’s latest Px4 Storm modular technology, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact delivers concealed carry handling with large frame firepower.

Available in two calibers, 9mm with 13 round magazine capacity and .40 S&W with 10 round magazine capacity, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact will be available in all the traditional configurations (F, G, C, D actions) that have made its Px4 Storm full size counterpart a preferred choice of Law Enforcement agencies and civilians across the United States. This new pistol uses a very reliable locked breech, providing a more compact and lighter weight system. Additionally, the Px4 Storm Sub-Compact utilizes a stainless steel barrel which requires less maintenance and is corrosion resistant, making it perfectly suited for concealment close to active perspiring bodies."

And thats about it with regard to specs.

Figure on a ridiculous trigger pull, and if you want to learn more and click into, then be my guest but if it isn't good enough for those who employ LE then it isn't good enough for me to waste my time. I'm just leery when they don't give us the full scoop on a new gun and believe instead that creating a LEO site will somehow make the ooh & aah factor too irresistible to pass up.
