    Stoeger is a subsidiary of Beretta (as is Benelli and a number of others), so some may still consider the Cougar to be a Beretta. Regardless whether it's a "Beretta" proper, it's a great gun.

    I bought a px-4sub compact yesterday. This is my first cc pistol and I haven't even had the chance to fire it yet. I loved the way it fit my hand. It seems like a chunk to carry so if you guys have suggestions for a holster to carry with I would love to hear them.

    I carry mine in a Crossbreed SuperTuck. Black on black.

    Beretta pistols?

    I have a SC PX4 9mm and a .40 full size. They are great, fit my hands well and are really smooth. However they are a little chunky and have been relegated to range/home defense duty. The Lc9 has taken the sd role for me.

    In the 1990s, the Stoeger company was purchased by Finnish rifle manufacturer Sako. In 2000, Sako was acquired by Beretta Holding S.p.A. At that time, Stoeger Industries was placed under the ownership of Benelli USA, where it remains today as a member of the Benelli USA family of companies. The technology and expertise of Benelli USA are integral to Stoeger’s manufacturing processes.

    The Stoeger Cougars are manufactured in Turkey for labor costs now but of course on Beretta Machinery. Many of the parts on my Stoeger are stamped Beretta. I just didn't want to get into all the history stuff.

    Among the new crop of compact, lightweight semi-automatic pistols designed for the armed citizen who carries concealed is the Beretta Nano, a polymer-frame, single-stack semi-automatic pistol made in the United States.

    I'm kind of worried about the size of it myself. I'm going to try carrying for a while and hope I can make it work. Otherwise I'll have to find a little .380 to carry around. I don't have the $$ to keeo buying until I get it right.

    Yeah that was me. I love the feel and they are really nice to shoot not to mention have not malfunctioned not one time no matter what ammo I have fed them. The balance and ergonomics I really like but being a double stack they are both simply to "thick" for every day carry. I looked at a .380 LCP but the round didn't impress me and the LC9 was a natural fit for me.

    I'm glad your experience was better than mine. I like Beretta and I had a 9000S for around a year.
    I found it to be an extremely comfortable, ridiculously accurate gun. I could rapid fire tight shots with no problem and it just fit my hand perfect.

    The bad: The gun LOVED 9mm FMJ's at the range, regardless of brand, but I could never get it to feed Hydrashoks, HST's or any defense round I tried without FREQUENT FTF and FTE's.
    It pained me to sell it, but how can you keep a weapon you don't trust in a defense situation with self defense rounds?

    My friend had the same gun and experienced the same problems. Glad it has not been an issue for you.

    The 96A1 is an outstanding Beretta piece. I'll own one someday as an additional home/in vehicle gun.
    Like you said, not really a carry option unless you're wearing a padded down parka in Siberia, lol

    Agreeing with you linuss.....Held the Nano and Shield and the Nano just felt "better" .. The top heavy will help on the recoil and the lack of a slide stop/safety made it an easier pick for me. Excellent American made pocket/cc pistol.

    My wife has the PX4 subcompact and loves it. I have size large hands and with the flip-down magazine base, I can get full purchase on it.

    I just picked up a new PX4 Storm sub compact Model F, with 2 13 rd mags. Feels good and is accurate.
