I’m a Beretta guy. I love their shotguns, pistols, the Beretta name, history, and legacy. The name Beretta seems to roll off the tongue like Maserati, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. It exudes a sense of quality and that sensuous Italian mystique that German, Austrian, Czech, and American firearms can never hope to achieve. Don’t get me wrong; I love all of my firearms, but my favorites are my Berettas.
In 2014, I spent a decent amount of time shooting the Beretta Px4 Storm. I didn’t shoot much in 2014, probably only 7,000 rounds of pistol or so; of that about 2,000 was through the Px4 Storm. I had three posts that covered using the gun, including a review of the Px4 Storm.
The Beretta PX4 Storm is not a new pistol – it’s been on the market for several years. That and its unusual design features are exactly the reason we’re taking a close look at it now. We’ll talk about the variants in the PX4 Storm family later, but the sample gun shown here is the full-size model, chambered in .40 S&W.
