Range? Carry? Home defense?

As briefly stated above, we need more information on WHY you are looking at this pistol.
If we knew why you are looking at it, we could offer better reviews.

good shooter. very accurate. low recoil.

feels huge in the hands, especially for something that holds so few rounds.

recommend sprinfield armory xd or xdm series or fn fnp45 series to achieve higher capacity in similar size and price point.

I haven't shot the .45, but the .40 and 9mm are excellent.

Is the .45 frame larger than the .40/9mm frame? Because that frame actually feels a bit small in my hands, not large.

It will be for the range and home. Very hard to carry in Jersey.

It's supposed to be a full size pistol. Does anyone know if the pistols that are made here are any different than the ones made in Italy?

With Berettas it is generally accepted that there is no difference.

For what it's worth, my PX4 has been a champion, I'm somewhere between 4,000-5,000 over almost 5 years and never have had a failure.

The one I have is made in Italy, it is light, accurate, and soft shooting. I was surprised as I have a couple Colt 1911 pattern pistols and I was able to shoot it very well on the first outing. I have it as a carry gun when concealment is not so very important and as a house/range gun. Simple to clean as well. 100% reliable so far.
