I would be interested in hearing comments concerning the pros & cons of the CZ 97 BD and Beretta PX4 Storm 45acp from this experienced group of shooters.
I welcome all of your inputs. / buddhas

I'll personally take a CZ over a Beretta any day.
But my favorite guns are the FNX 40, The HK P30, and the FN FiveseveN. S&W M&P is a great one also, and they come in .357 sig which is pretty much the best auto pistol caliber.

I don't own either, but I've handled each of them a few times at gun shows and gun stores.
The CZ 97 feels big every time I handle it. For perspective, my regular shooters are a 1911 and an S&W 4506. The grip isn't outsized like a Glock G21, but the whole gun just seems big. I get a similar feeling when I handle the FN .45.
The Berettta PX4 .45 doesn't feel quite as big overall, but the grip feels a little chunckier. It is lighter than the CZ.
If you haven't found this already, here is a review of the PX4 .45 by the late Mr. Camp.
