Hey, cool. Beretta has delivered a new run of the Px4 Storm SD pistol in .45 ACP. Apparently, the first run of these sold out in a hurry, and Beretta has been unable to keep up with demand for the .45 ACP “tactical” version of the Storm.
I’ve always thought the Storm was a cool design – the way the barrel locks up to the frame makes inherently a very accurate handgun, and when they introduced the Px4 Storm “C” model which uses a “constant action” system to produce a trigger pull more in line with modern striker fired pistols (the C is actually a single action only pistol) I toyed with the idea of buying one.
The Px4 Storm SD .45 ACP has a street price of around $850-$900, which puts it up there with the HK USP in terms of cost. Seeing as these things sold out on their first run, people apparently think that’s a worthwhile price to pay – and who am I to object? The entire Storm lineup of pistols are solid, well built guns that unfortunately haven’t gained a whole lot of traction in the LE/Military market, but seem to be popular with shooters for concealed carry.
