I'm looking for recommendations/opinions for a 9mm carbine to be used for 3 gun matches and indoor range use. I'm thinking of either the Ruger PC9 or Beretta Storm. I'm a lefty, too and I understand the Beretta can be set up for us southpaws. thanks
I have a Storm, and it can be made lefty friendly pretty easily. It's accurate and easy to shoot, and mine doesn't seem to be ammo sensitive. Some ppl are fussed abt the plastic hammer, but I haven't read of it being a problem (it contacts other plastic parts). Easy to hang doo-dads from as well.
Either would probably serve you well.

I can't speak for the Storm, but I've got a PC9GR. It's a great carbine and I really like it. Very rugged and reliable. Some may say it's a bit too heavy, but it's only a little over a 1/2 pound heavier than the Beretta.

You might also check out the Kel-Tec SUB-2000. Pretty decent little carbine and it can be had configured to use Beretta, Glock, S&W, or SIG magazines.

Try before you buy, if you can, and see what works best for you.

Good luck.
The Beretta is a no go; you'll have to go with the Ruger.

The Beretta CX4 has a thumbhole stock and are illegal in California as they were responsible for several school shootings.
