I ordered this on Saturday - it arrived yesterday... I hope to shoot it soon.
But, I like it a lot so far. I will say that it feels great in the hand with the medium backstrap that already comes on it. I have smaller hands, and I like that my hand sits closer to the trigger than it does on many other handguns.:)
Not bad for $289 NEW ($269 + $20 shipping after the $100 rebate I will get)

No offense meant to the OP but Beretta definitely has their own sense of style when it comes to designing handguns.
Me: "..and that brings us back to the age old question, how much ammo should you carry or how much is enough, doesn't it? Lol "
AzQkr: "The age old questions answer is carry more, not less. For if more isn't enough, less surely won't be. lol"
What was your "out the door" price with tax and fees- about $400ish? And then a $100 mail in rebate? That's a VERY good deal on a solid pistol- and it's NOT made in Turkey! With Sig selling new p320s with contrast sights for sometimes $449, Beretta with the APX for even less, great prices on M&Ps, CZs, and Walthers- it's a buyers market, especially on very good striker pistols.
Congratulations on the new pistol. Not a big fan of the styling but if you like it that's all that matters.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.
