    I might be in the market for a new 9mm and the two I'm looking into are the Px4 Storm 9mm and the Glock 17 Gen 4 9mm. I used to own a Gen 3 17 so I am used to Glocks but not the Gen 4 17. I'm also not familiar with the Px4 but I hear good things about it. So which would be better of the two? Anyone have experience with either one? Which is more reliable, durable, and accurate?

    I'm a big fan of Glock pistols, own four currently, and have owned many more then that in the past, however I would strongly caution you to pass on the Gen4 G-17 at this time. There have just been too many issues with the dual recoil springs, seriously, I'd pass on it for now.

    I own three Glocks , I would pass on the Gen. 4. I had a PX4 and never had a problem with it.

    Can't vouch for a Gen 4, but my Gen 3 17 has been stupidly reliable almost boring! It is the only pistol I would ever trust my life with. And that is an understatement. Stick with a Gen 3 buddy you won't ever regret it.

    I can't vouch for the Gen 4 Glocks, but I would definitely choose a Gen 3 Glock 17 over the Beretta, without a second thought.

    Go with the Gen 3 Glock. My PX4 has been flawless. The Gen4 Glocks are questionable.
