Beretta APX handgun. ( Awsome piece of kit ).

Recommended Posts

Today I got a chance to test drive a Beretta APX handgun in 9mm.

It is a dream to shoot this firearm, in my opinion it's better than Glocks & would be in par with the Walther P99 & PPQ..

I shot 100 rounds at 25 yards & printed a 2 1/2 inch group, I was impressed with this firearm.

If I were to start all over again the Beretta APX would certainly be high on list to get.

My personal rating on this firearm would be 10 out of 10.

I want one of these Beretta APX , will need to thin the gun safe a bit, before I jump in with a purchase.

One can own handguns in Canada, providing they have a valid RPAL license with a restricted or prohibited statice.

can you carry it on your person or does it have to reside in your home? curious...

We do not have concealed or open carry in Canada.

LEO yes they can open & concealed carry.

Restricted firearms can only be transported in a vehicle to an approved shooting range & back home only.

We have tighter firearms laws here in Canada, as to the laws in USA.

I'm pretty "old school" especially when it comes to Beretta handguns. I personally prefer (love) the innate design of the open slide mechanisms especially on the Beretta 84 pistol, which I think is THE best designed pistol I've ever seen. I will rent an APX and see if I swoon in lust and desire for one. Being already invested in Glocks,  I would be hard pressed to financially justify coughing up the moola for another quality Beretta. Hopefully your review will be "good enough" for me to satiate my curiousity for awhile.....

the only thing plastic on a pistol should be the chamber safe indicator insert and maybe the grips.

This looked good on video as far as muzzle whip equates fast target requisition or follow up shots, and I did like the larger trigger guard.  disassembly is a dream and captured recoil spring is a great feature -- great first gun for a person new to guns and is adaptable great features barrel length good.    

I do not mind aluminum frames but rather have steel the best feeling 40 S&W I ever shot was a Beretta 92 full size all the others had too much muzzle whip IMHO.

That is where this is going muzzle whip is the most destructive element to accurate shooting then there is the grip if it readjusts because it is to smooth and we have to use grip tape then the original was not well thought out.

Accuracy is the only "best defense" if every shot strikes it's mark the rest is moot. most compact or palm guns have bumps for sights and that give no advantage in fact most people can't hit a human torso at 7 yards or 21 feet with one or a snub gun. add in 98% of people have never been in a face to face gunfight or in a life or death situation or been shot at and that makes the micro blaster plastic handled squirming vermin in your hand a threat to everyone BUT the criminal in the vicinity,

 Thought the Beretta 92 was in 9x19 , 9mm only.

Beretta 96 was in 40 s&w .

Ive never seen a Beretta 92 in a 40 S&W caliber.

What do I know, it could be a special model.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
