New gun #2!
 
Picked it up the evening before I left for "vacation" so I sorta forgot to post some pics :zap: Some quick ones a snapped after seeing Rips thread. I held and test fired lots of firearms before I bought this one. I really was on the fence with a lot of different ones before I handled this one. Didn't even test fire it, it felt so good. Feels like s** in the hand, never even had to change the backstraps. Came with a cleaning kit, 2 mags, 2 manuals, Omega lock, firearm, 3 backstraps, and probably some more stuff I am forgetting. The tabs on the box almost broke from it being so loaded with stuff. without further ado!!

Beretta Px4 (F model, decocker & safety) full size .40 S&W, standard 14+1 mags.

I've seen the PX4 before. I thought it was weird because of the rotating barrel. Good buy. I like .40 so you did good there too! :D

Sweet, looks good. Needs wood. ;)

I like the desk of death! A .40 cal, a pack of smokes, and like 20 knives! :punk:

How's the trigger pull on that bad boy. Looks like the trigger is at an awkward angle.

Must be nice living in the FREE states. Here in Cali it's 10+1 only.:mad:

Yeah sucks for you whitey! I moved out of Cali when I turned 17. I love here in Texas!

Why does your mouse have dents?

JCS05Rubi 03-12-2008 08:21 PM

LoL, those knives are the ones getting sent out for warranty work, or I need to sharpen them.

I do not live in a free state, I live in Maryland, almost as bad as california and mass. We just got lucky and cant have mags over 20 rounds, not 10.

The mouse does not have dents, it just has a sticker or paint job that looks like it.

The trigger pull is very nice. I only have 200 rounds through it, so its still breaking in, but the single action trigger is very smooth, short, clean and predicable break, with an acceptable reset. the double action is heavy, a little gritty (which should both clean up with some rounds), and feels like it binds a little just before it breaks, causing a jerk if you are not slow and deliberate with it just before break. I don't use DA on any of my firearms (all are DA/SA), I just train myself to cock the hammer while getting into "ready." With that said, it does have a nicer DA than most firearms I have handled, and should clean up very nicely with some use.

Overall I am EXTREMELY happy with the firearm. With the changeable backstraps, I have yet to find someone that does not think it is the most comfortable firearm they have handled. The recoil is managable. A little bit less muzzle flip than a sig 229 (for my anyways, everyone sees recoil differently). Easy break down, easy cleaning, more accurate than me. I can't be happier. the superluminova sights are a nice touch, though I wish they would have gone with real night sights. I always carry a surefire, so its not a big deal, but they have a tendancy to "pop out" and have to be re-painted from what I have read. Other than that, the sights are perfect for me :)

Ha! I have REAL night sights on both my Sigs!

You said less muzzle flip? That's amazing because my 229 has very little. I'll bet that's a sweet shooter.

JCS05Rubi 03-13-2008 05:38 AM

I shot the 229 about a year ago. The beretta has some, but for me, it shoots nicer than the other .40s I have test fired. No .40 is flat shooting, but this one is very quick back onto target. I would deffinately try one if you like .40 and get the chance.
