    Let's be honest, outside of maybe Beretta companies like Glock, Sig, S&W, and Springer don't REALLY need the contract.

    I say "outside of Beretta" because outside of the M9 or the civilian 92FS I can't think of anything of theirs that appears in people's safes with consistency the way the G19, xDs, or M&Ps show up.

    Hadn't thought of Beretta like that. I would have bet they sold a bunch of PX4's.

    Every gun shop guy I have talked to despise that gun and of all my friends that own guns I only know one guy with a PX4 and I swear he only bought it as his first gun because it was in some movie he liked.

    I got one buddy who loves his and you're right about most all feedback being negative. Maybe Beretta sells a shitload of shotguns in Italy or something.

    Now that Beretta lost its contract, maybe they up their game. I always like the Beretta 92F, even if my experience is extremely limited to shooting paper targets. It always feel good in my hand, and is accurate.

    Beretta has some nice designs out there like the Mx4 Storm. The sub gun version of the Cx4



    That guy looks like he could be from Scarface

    And there is the ARX 100



    I never shoot this, but did use it in Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. It looks very nice.

    I've got a friend with an ARX-100. It's pretty gimmicky if you ask me. It's cool that it's side charging handle and ejection port can be switched on the fly but other than convenience features it is nothing special, and for the price tag you can build a much better AR.

    I never said the VSO Gun Channel guys were smart. It's just one of the better vids I know of for the Faxon gun.

    Jesus, I've been kicking around their videos. These guys are dressed like they're straight out of rainbow six, shooting without ears and eyes, show no muzzle awareness, and are shooting handguns into a water filled tire. With their hands in the water. What the fuck.

    Well, the US Army has this phobia of guns with out manual safeties. I am not sure if this Sig has a Manual safety or not, but I assume that is why Glock will never get the Army contract.

    Here's the way I see it, Beretta played the "me too" card put together some weak-ass shit to regain a portion of the market. We were left with much of the same-old except the Px4 has a polymer frame and rotating barrel.

    Functionally, I have no real issues with the Px4, at least in our configuration; mostly nitpicks. What I hate is that we were stuck with a commercial failure of a pistol with little-to-no support, which is ridiculous for a duty issue pistol.

    Yeah, it's pretty bad.

    When I go shooting with my friends at the gravel pit and shit I will admit I run a chest rig/plate carrier system with a drop leg or lower than midpoint belt holster but the guy's I am with are former MARSOC, 82nd, and other JSOC or almost JSOC level guys teaching me shit.

    Those guys in their vids... full kit to shoot clays.


    Would love to hear Mat Best roast them:



    Especially given this:


    The second vid starts at a specific point so no, I am not losing my mind posting the same vid 2 times in a row thinking I have posted two different vids.

    It's a high pressure round that wears your pistol out quicker. It's also very snappy when compared to a 9mm or 45acp.
