    I think you'll like it Bud - got one last year complete with rail and run a red dot on it. Gonna run a load of lead thru mine tomorrow.... one of the other guys coming has one in .40.

    Despite the ''Flash Gordon'' looks of this gun I find it is emminently pointable and accuracy is well acceptable - 50 yds is very easy and even at 100 moderate results are possible. Over priced items these but - very nice to have.

    Let us know your thoughts later after shooting.

    We just got two of them at Gander Mountain East. One of them is 9x19, and the other is .45 ACP.

    We spent a dull afternoon playing "Stargate-Atlantis" with them. Personally, now that I've handled one, I'd rather have something made of metal for facing the Wraith.

    George,

    The characters on the 'Stargate' series all carry those futuristic personal defense machine pistols.

    Granted, the ones on the show are a different make and model (the FN P90), but they also appear to be made of mostly plastic.

    That, and a lot of us are SciFi fans, we've been watching the series finales of Battlestar Gallactica and Atlantis, and many of us just off seeing James Earl Jones III.

    We were playing. Adults play.

    That would probably be a better way for me to go than a 9mm AR. I might have to look into that.

    I looked at a AR in 9mm but the cost exceeds what i paid for the storm package plus Mrs doesnt like the AR too heavy for her and of course buying it made me go out and get a beretta 92 since there same mags so its not a bad thing

    I saw a new Colt 9mm in a local shop yeaterday and was quoted $1295 on it. Just too rich for my blood. I like the AR platform, but just can't justify that much for a 9mm rifle. Since I don't own a Beretta, hence no Beretta mags, I need something that uses Glock 17 mags. Do they make them also??

    Is there a fully automatic military version of this firearm? I have never seen one. In fact, it's only on TV that I've seen a FN P90.

    Were these firearms built for a government trial or are they just civilian guns that take an accompanying pistol magazine.

    I remember that Ruger had/has carbine rifles that also took pistol mags.

    Have had my Storm(in .45 ACP) now for about 8 wks. The wait was worth it. It will cycle almost any type bullet except wadcutter. It shoots the 165gr. COR-BON's just as accurate as the 230gr. whatevers. The most accurate load that I have found is the Hornady 230gr. XTP,which is a +p load.(Hornady # 9096) Sighted in these to dead on at 25yds and moved the target back to 50yds and the bullets continued to cut the same ragged hole. 10 shots went into a 1.7" group. This was from a well rested shooting bench,ammo stripped from the mag,and with a TRU-GLO red dot sight. It would be interesting to see what the little weapon would do with a decent trigger pull and a 12X Leupold. Trigger---- The pull is off my scale(over 12 lbs.)Although it doesn't have very much creep the trigger is not condusive to good groups but it can be mastered. Safety---- Would guess that it takes 15-20 lbs. of force to go either way with it. I can't take it off safe with my shooting hand without looseing my grip.(guess that could be a good thing) I'm sure that it was a lawyer thing as was the trigger. Will look into monkeying with them both in my free time. Also, cut all four of the sight ears off the front and rear sights. This weapon will be used with a red dot or some other sighting device only. I could not see the smallish open sights that came on the weapon. Origionally bought this weapon for very close range hogs and deer. The deer and hogs that we have here in NW Fla. don't get very big. Three weeks ago, at the hunting club that I belong to, I killed a 210-220lb. hog with the little rifle. She was 40 yds,broadside,and i was shootin' the above loading. The bullet went all the way through her and she went 30yds. and fell over dead. I will give this ammo a try in several of my 1911's to see how well it does in them. It could just turn out to be a good CCW load for two legged critters. Overall I would reccommend the little Beretta Storm. Especially in .45ACP. If you can live with the 9 rds. total capacity that is. I can't think of a critter(2 or 4 legged) that would take any more killin than that. I will chrono the Hornady loading in the near future to see what they are doing out of a 16" bbl. Hornady advertises 950fps out of a 5" bbl. so I would guess 1025 to 1075fps.---------
