This will be my final pistol purchase when it's all said and done. After that I will only buy and build rifles. I am already working on a healthy amount of pistols and I don't want a ton of pistols in the same calibers and then you factor in I only have interest in 9mm and 45acp and one 40 on the way it's like how many 9mm and 45s do I really need once I hit 4 9mm's and 3 45s?

When it comes to rifles it seems like there are cartridges and setups of large varieties that serve many different purposes, ranges etc while pistols are just pistols to me.

I was able to fondle all variations of the APX at the NRA Expo in Atlanta and determined then the APX would be on my short list for next purchase. The Beretta rep out of Accokeek HQ said the APX had been submitted and should be cleared at the next roster meeting. What I didn't like is that it appears all the variations of colors and sights will be considered accessories and purchased separately from the base gun in black with three dot (not night) sights. Unless I misunderstood, that will add to the cost if one wants to customize to their particular liking. All three grip pads felt good, but the medium felt best to me. The trigger was sublime with very short reset. Appearance is very subjective, but I think they look much better than the "gold standard" Glock. Pesonally, I'd like the gray frame with night sights. Initially this will be full size only, but since the gun is modular like the P320, I fully expect compact and subcompact models to follow. And yes, guns sold in MD will have 10 round mags as part of the "special" MD sales kit.

Handled a FN 509 today next to the Beretta APX . While the FN''s grip is a improvement over the FN 9 the trigger was absolutely terrible! ! I was hoping it was a nicer handgun so I could add 1 to the collection. But with a price tag about $200.00 more than the Beretta I can't see adding 1. The APX to me is so much nicer for the money! !

Big Dogs has 1 in stock. They will transfer the gun to all pawn. Then you can pick up the standard capacity mags in VA where you bought it.
