I carry a 92FS daily and yes it's big and heavy. It really comes down to what you are most comfortable with. For me, I knew the moment I sent the first bullet down range with my father's M9 that the 92FS was going to be the right gun for me. I'm more accurate with it than most everything else I've shot and it is more comfortable to me than anything else. I like the DA/SA setup and being able to carry with a round chambered and the hammer down. I'm willing to substitute a little weight and easy of carry for that. It is also referred to as the movie gun by several of my friends due to it's capacity. Compared to some of the single stack guns it seems like the 92FS never runs out of bullets. There are those days though where I really do want to have something lighter. I wish I had more knowledge on the PX4, but I haven't spent much time with one.

I carried a Navy issue M9 in a Serpa CQC chest rig and/or thigh rig for far too many days..... Great gun! big, solid, and most importantly, reliable. This gun is a beast for a 9mm. I think the MRBF was around 30,000+ which is excellent.

the PX4 storm is Beretta's attempt at a polymer style firearm. personally I think they did a great job. I would buy the compact version over the full size any day though... Cant really explain why other than I like it better. it "feels" better to me.

Racer hit it, and sailor wrote a good review(with experience). You should try both somehow (i know shooters express lets you shoot a few rounds before you buy.)But whatever your most comfy with, can shoot the best with, and the most reliable. Maybe read around the net, or get opinions from people/customers at gun shops. Just throwin out suggestions.

I'm a 1911 guy. The advice I got from the pros a long time ago was carry the biggest firearm that you are comfortable SHOOTING and can SHOOT well. It should never be comfortable enough when carrying that you forget you have it.

My truck gun is a Taurus .38. Don't remember the model. I'll carry it if I haven't been home (from work) to retrieve the 1911.

I too have been looking at the PX4. I cannot decide between the full size or the compact. I know I cannot stand the sub-compact.

I was going to go do the rental thing, but gezzzz, it is about $50 once it is all said and done.
