If you want one gun for a concealed carry and your first line of self-defense, then it’s tempting to follow the herd and plump for the Glock 19. But there are options out there and the Beretta PX4 Storm is certainly one of them.
We think the Springfield Armory XD Mod 2 9mm is the new King of concealed carry, but some people are simply loyal to a brand and, for others, it simply does not sit 100% right in their hand.
That’s why there are different handguns out there. Different strokes for different folks and all.
The Beretta has a faithful following around the world.
A Choice of Beretta Barrel Lengths
The barrel on the full size gun is four inches long and it does come with a Picatinny rail on the underside for a red dot or tactical lamp. The compact version has a 3.2 inch barrel and fits more neatly under your clothes.
We would go with the red dot in either case, as much for the psychological impact in a self-defense situation as the actual value of the target assistance.
Stronger Than a 9mm Handgun
The total length is 7.59 inches, so it isn’t the most compact gun out there, but it does pack a punch.
You get 15 rounds of .40 S&W ammo, which is fearsome firepower. You can order a 9mm version, too, and a 45 ACP. We’re drawn to this .40 S&W version on Brownells, though, which is the sweet spot between price and power.
It’s lightweight polymer and weighs in at 1.74lb.
It’s totally ambidextrous, the thermoplastic frame doesn’t just cut the weight. It helped Beretta balance the gun, too. The stainless steel barrel should stand the test of time and this is a seriously reliable gun that could easily serve as a daily carry.
The rotary barrel system helps to quash recoil and that pays off at the range. It also means this could be a viable gun for your bedside safe if you want something stronger than a 9mm as your last line of defense.
You’ll know you’ve got the chosen sidearm of thousands of law enforcement officers and military unit all round the world. You will also know it has been torture tested and should give you 150,000 rounds without major maintenance.
Slider Is Cut And Grooved
The lightweight slider comes with notches for front charging, the safety is in the right place to knock off with your thumb and it’s a nice sized gun for the average person. If the Springfield Armory doesn’t feel right then you’re not just stuck with a Glock.
Take a look at the Beretta PX4 Storm and you might just find it’s the perfect all-round handgun for your particular style.
