    Beretta PX4 Storm Compact


    The grip on the sub-compact is rather small.

    I really like my XD45 and my M&P 9 (full size). Glocks just don't feel right to me. The M&P Shield is nice. My wife will be getting one soon.

    It drops the hammer on nothing. That's what it's supposed to do.

    It's a decocker as well as a trigger block.
    When you engage the safety with the hammer cocked, it drops the hammer but mechanically makes it impossible for the hammer to contact the firing pin.

    In fact, it's the ONLY safe way to lower the hammer, with a round in the pipe.

    exactly. i think the walther was the first to incorporate this. an actual block engages to keep the hammer from hitting the pin. to lower it with your thumb while pulling the trigger is dangerous. the gun can still go off. drop it with enough force (like concrete) and there is nothing protecting the pin from the hammer

    id like to get a ppk in .380 at some point to carry as well.

    Every firearm that you can buy has at least one passive safety built in.

    If they didn't, they'd be going off at all sorts of times that you don't want them to. Like when you rack the slide, or drop the gun. When that sort of thing happens, companies get sued.

    A safety that prevents the trigger from operating is what most people refer to as a "manual safety". And as far as I am concerned they only serve one purpose. To make the gun not function when you do the one and only thing that is supposed to make the gun go bang.

    If you pull the trigger the gun is supposed to go bang.
    When you don't pull the trigger the gun is not supposed to go bang.

    If you don't want the gun to go bang, you don't need a "manual safety".
    You need to not pull the trigger.

    The only way that the gun will go off, (thanks to it's passive safeties) is if you execute the deliberate action of putting your finger on the trigger, and pulling it back.

    Gotta toss in the 1911 style Kimber Pro Carry II. Nice carry in a .45. You'll need a couple of extra clips to get into a real gun fight. Only holds 8. Do like Springfields w/ 13 round clips.
