    Anyone have a 9mm Beretta Storm subcompact and kahr 380 they could do a size comp on

    One of these two guns is going to be my next purchase probably next month. I am leaning towards the storm in 9mm, more stopping power etc but just for CC issues I was wondering if anyone had some pics of them side by side etc for size comparison. I cant find any.
    Another reason is just the 9mm is a cheaper round and I already have a Beretta Bobcat in .22 that I EDC pocket carry. Now I want to step up and carry one of these bigger calibers.

    Anyone have thoughts on these two pistols or pics they would like to share. I do love gun porn.

    I don't have any pictures, but wouldn't the Beretta Storm be a closer match in size to the Kahr PM9?

    I can tell you the profile of the PX4 - SC is just a bit longer than the KEL-TEC PF9, but definitely wider. Does that help ?
    Easy to carry, very comfortable compared to many guns. I bought mine with no idea to carry it, but it worked so well it and a revolver are my main 2 carry guns now.

    Hint: they fit into an XD - SC holster well , but slightly smaller.

    I love the look and feel of that sub compact so much. The berettas just feel like they are made for my hand. i guess closer to PM9 would be an acceptable size.

    Does anyone have a subcompact storm in 9mm they like?

    I posted above... the PX4-SC, is the Beretta Storm .... PX4- subcompact. What would you like to know ? Maybe I can help.
    IT is very good quality, shoots well, conceals easily, fits me well, and have no issues with it at all. I like it a lot more than a lot of guns. I have smaller hands and this one with adjustable backstraps allowed me to best fit it to my hand, which really helps.

    Several Police Depts use them as well.... they made an LE version, which was no different. The only difference was the accessories with it. None of them have complained. When it went public, getting hands on one took forever because there was such a backlog on them. It took me about 1 yr to get one.

    It has basically the twisting barrel to reduce recoil and improve accuracy as the Beretta Cougar... and you can also look at those posts on here. I've seen no negative comments about either one of them. The only debate I've heard is ... whether people like the decocker or not. I didn't initally, but I've found advantages to having it now. I sometimes decock the gun, then turn it back off while in the holster. It's no issue either way.

    So, not hearing something... usually is good news. LOL. At least this will bump the post up , so maybe others can pipe in.

    The Beretta subcompact PX4 is a great little pistol. I've had one since they first came out and it has been 100% reliable and very accurate. It is a great choice that you'll be happy with.

    Hmmmmm i saw the baretta PX4 storm subcompact (Drool Drool) being used in the movie A-Team by the female agent "Sossa".....

    At first i didn't know what it was, but i thought it looked farmiliar to my stoeger cougar 8000 and I felt that it was the perfect carry size as compared to my cougar (which is kinda heavy to lug around)......I knew that she seemed to be using a barretta and got onto the net and found the px4 subcompact (drool drool)......13+1 rounds i would go for the baretta

    The sub compact has a browning style tilt barrel, not the rotating barrel like the full sized PX4. Mine and my brother's have both been flawless. Can't wait to see the .40 version.

    The Beretta PX4 Subcompact is a big, fat heavy pistol compared to other subcompact guns on the market. In fact, I do believe that it is easily the largest gun on the market to call itself a subcompact.

    Here is a comparison photo that shows the PX4 Subcompact on the left, and a Glock 26 subcompact on the right. As you can see, the PX4 Subcompact is much larger and heavier than the Glock. It really towers over the Glock, and is significantly heavier in weight. Note that the PX4 Subcompact is also wider than the Glock 26 too.




    Now let's compare the Glock 26 to a Walther PPS, which has similar dimensions, EXCEPT that it is dramatically THINNER than the Glock. Here is a Glock 26 on the left, and the Walther PPS to the right:




    Next, lets compare the Walther PPS ( on the right in the photo below ) to the Kahr PM9 ( on the left in the photo below ):




    You will see in the above photo that the Kahr PM9 is about as thin as the Walther PPS. However, you can also see that it is DRAMATICALLY SHORTER than the PPS, and also not quite as tall either.

    Finally, let's compare the Kahr P380 ( on the left below ) to the Kahr PM9 ( on the right below ):



    You will see here that once again the Kahr P380 is significantly smaller still compared to the Kahr PM9

    If you add all of these comparisons up, you will easily understand that these two guns are not at all in the same league in terms of size and weight. They basically are at OPPOSITE EXTREMES when it comes to size, weight, and ease of concealabilty.

    So really, these two guns are in no way at all comparable. A wise person would get a gun somewhere in size between these two extremes, in my humble opinion. Going either too large or too small is going to have significant drawbacks.

    I was thinking a Taurus Pt709 in the 40 cal or a new taurus pt 111 in either 9mm or .45.

    Im leaning towards the pro models more rounds and I have the 709 in 9mm already.
