Beretta APX - Anybody got one?

http://www.beretta.com/en-us/firearm...&c=Full&mpp=24

If you have one, how do you like it?
Comparisons to other striker fired polymer framed pistols?

It's new and probably not roster approved yet.

Yea I found some "in stock" as of today. Just makes you wonder. A company that can't stick to their own release dates, seems a bit desperate for sales..lMO.

Or people are desperate for the product. Either way, QT only has the early release for first responders/military personnel. I can't partake of this.

The video was informative, thank you.

I have a couple Glock 19's and just picked up a HK VP9, so this isn't a critical purchase for me. Perhaps if I was able to legally carry, the gloved hand issue per the video would make a difference? Beyond sub-compacts, the 19 is as close to perfect in my limited experience as you can get for CC

Unless the APX totally eclipsed the VP9 with regards to a full size polymer striker fired pistol, my next purchase will probably be another VP9, perhaps with the threaded barrel?

If I had extra cash laying around, it would be a nice addition to my collection.
I've always been a sucker for marketing, hence my gen 2 model 22 glock, walther P-99 and LWRC piston AR upper.

Thank you everyone for your opinions and insight.
