    Congratulations, you win the "doesn't understand the point of the thread" award. Step up to the front of the short bus to claim your prize.

    Here's my Storm (notice jem, I do understand the concept of "show us your Storms). ;)

    Maybe he doesn't like Storms?

    Mine is all stock, so I haven't bothered to take a pic of it! It looks just like yours, but I do have 2 15 round and 2 17 round mags for it.

    Jem, if it's really neccessary to show your utter disgust at these guns everytime they're mentioned so be it, but I don't think the same 3 pukey faced reply more than once in each thread is really called for. :rolleyes:

    My Storm is basically stock right now, as I've been focusing my attention on completing my AR. But I'd eventually just like to put a small red dot on it and get a trigger job. I like the light weight and don't want to add too much and my only complaints are the sights and the trigger. Also it seems like i'm the only one who has removed the original stock spacer instead of adding more. I dunno about you guys but I find the storm with no spacers to fit perfectly and as a small 9mm carbine I want it to be the smallest lightest package as possible.

    sorry guys, just find it hard to believe that anyone would pay that much for a pistol carbine when the pre-ban or post ban ar15's are selling at a low price right now.....they are more accurate, so much more power distance wise, lengthwise about the same, 20-30-40 round magazines, surplus ammo is cheap...all the storm is good for is for plinking anyway...

    the storm uses the same magazine your CCW gun uses. this means you can keep it in your trunk or whatever unloaded and you don't have wo worry about running afoul of the law.

    Who cares, it's a gun, and all guns are great. He likes it, you don't. He's not holding it to your head forcing you to buy one

    jem, please go away. Find some school kids and ridcule them for believing in Santa, or pour salt in someone's coffee. Your dislike of the Storm is noted. We don't care if you like them, nor did we ask for your blessing before buying one. It may dishearten jerky folks like yourself who despise other's happiness, but some of us enjoy our Storms, alot.

    Shoo.

    Life is too short to spend being mean.

    But people who like ugly guns ARE ridiculous.

    Why must life involve such conundrums?

    The Storm is a cool-looking peice, though.

    You already listened to me. :D

    You have a right to crap on threads, bullying your opinions where they serve no purpose...and I have the right to call you an idiot/jackass.

    America is a wonderful country, ain't it? My Storm farts in your general direction.

    Easy there, fellow shooters......

    I have no significant objections in responsible ownership of a purely “fun†weapon. There is room for all, and I say please enjoy your CX4 to its recreational fullest.

    However, Beretta has stated in their ads that this is a weapon that is “designed to meet the needs of law enforcement†and further states, â€is also excellent for sport and home defenseâ€. Beretta even has it listed under the law enforcement header on their website.

    Well, I’ll concede that generic “sport†category to them, but NOT those other two. Sorry Charley, “1-out-of-3†isn’t good enough when lives are on the line. This weapon has several glaring (and needless) handicaps for defense, especially when compared to a more informed choice.

    I believe that there is a significant group (within the owners of this weapon) that takes Beretta’s advertising poppycock seriously. For them, this play-actor of a carbine suddenly becomes a car gun, truck gun or some sort of a primary option for home defense.

    And with that risky mindset, is where MY objections begin.

    If a 9mm pistol is viable for defense, I fail to see how the storm is not.

    I crack up when I see people saying how horrible the Storm or any 9mm is for home defense, truck gun, etc. First of all any gun is better than no gun, I really think we take things too far sometimes in looking for the exact best for every situation. Second, as a light carbine that can accept the same mags as a pistol it can come in quite handy. Third one of the most popular law enforcement and military arms of all time is the HK MP5 which is strikingly similar to the Storm other than being select fire. Finally for those who are so deadset againt the 9mm I have a proposition for you. Let's go have a duel and I will bring a 9mm Storm and you can bring whatever you'd like. One shot each but I get to fire first. Any takers?

    PS. For those that think that an AR is so much more accurate than a Storm here is a target that I shot with my Storm the very first time I had it to the range. Bone stock, 25 yards, offhand with only my ammo box to rest on.

    PSS. For those that say surplus ammo is cheap I can get 1000 rounds of 9mm for $85-90. Other than Wolf the cheapest I've seen 1000 rounds of 5.56mm is $140

    “I really think we take things too far sometimes in looking for the exact best for every situation.â€

    Yep, if it really needs to be said, I surely want the “exact best†defensive choice available for any foreseeable situation. It all comes down to just how serious you are. Firearms are simply tools, and as such you pays your money, and takes your choice. The difference between a poor, or proper (defensive) choice depends upon the tactical wisdom and gun-smarts of the buyer. Stack the odds in your favor.

    The Cx4 is a plinker. It’s not as defensively versatile as an equal caliber handgun. The myriad of size related benefits of sidearms are already well known, and ANY ONE of those benefits could be responsible for someone winning a defensive encounter.

    The Cx4 is also of carbine SIZE, but CANNOT FULFILL most carbine mandates. Hence, it’s a poor primary choice for anything but recreational use. It LOOKS good, and unfortunately, that’s where some folks stop thinking.

    “Second, as a light carbine that can accept the same mags as a pistol it can come in quite handy.â€

    If those are your primary considerations, it looks like you found your weapon.

    “Let's go have a duel and I will bring a 9mm Storm and you can bring whatever you'd like. One shot each but I get to fire first. Any takers?â€

    And with that statement, it makes it difficult to further take you seriously. That kind of “tactical fantasy†continues to sell many, many different brands and styles of mouseguns. But all it is, is the very essence of what spawns new and like-minded comic books, video games and TV shows.
