I was at one of my local police supply stores picking up some duty gear today. They are a S&W stocking dealer and Law Enforcement supplier so I got to fondle a M&P40 today. It is definitely on my list to aquire in the near future. But, before I left one of the salesman wanted to show off something new. I bit, and he got a Beretta PX4 Storm from the safe. They did not have it out for sale yet. It was in 40S&W. If anyone remembers about ten years ago, Beretta had a model called the "Cougar". The PX4 Storm is the polymer child to the Cougar. It has a rotating barrel and recoil spring set up like the Cougar. It has a fire control set up like the SigPro that is inserted and removed as a unit. It mimicks the M&P, Walther/S&W 99, etc with several different sized palm swells and reversable magazine releases. The trigger was smooth and stacked a little at the end of the take up. It is a traditional DA/SA. Would I go right out and buy one?...........more than likely not, but it is interesting. I remember the Cougar did not do very well here in the USA, and I predict that the PX4 Storm will more than likely do the same, but that is opinion and conjecture.......my $0.02.
