I bought it for a house gun for the wife earlier this year. I have always been more of a traditionalist. Insofar as firearms are concerned. I never have been overly attracted to something that looks like it came off of a Star Wars set.
However the 12 guage shotguns and large bore handguns that I keep for house guns are not a whole lot of fun for my wife to use. Since I have had the storm for a while and have been able to play around with it quite a bit, I have determined that I like it a lot. Ihe whole Idea of a carbine chambered in a pistol round just went against my way of thinking. There is no way I would want one in a less powerfull round. I would however like to have one in something a little hotter. By the way I have put about three hundred rounds through mine with one stove pipe very early on. Otherwise 0 malfunctions
Just be sure that your reloads are good to go. While the primer and a grain of powder might push the bullet out of a 4.25" barrel it will only go about 11 1/2" in the Storm. :grumble: Don't ask me how I know. Also the barrel is not replacible without sending it to Beretta along with $400.00.:barf:
