Ordered a Beretta APX
« on: June 08, 2019, 11:52:18 AM »
With the price of $369 online, plus a $100 Beretta USA rebate, I could not pass it up. I ordered a Beretta APX Centurion 9mm.

I guess the deal was good enough for you to put your usual disdain of striker fired  pistols.aside. :icon_wink:

Yes indeed. I will give it  shot. A sub $300 Beretta after the rebate. Cannot go wrong.

I wouldn't pass it up for $269 either. Especially it being a Beretta. Great score on that one Ship.  :th_thicon_idea:

There are 3 different sizes. Several months ago, I played with all 3. I liked the medium one the best - the Centurion. I went and played with it this morning at Academy, and then made up my mind and ordered it.

I was looking for a smaller gun and ordered a APX Compact.  It'll be a week before I can get my hands on it.  I've got a Glock 19 but really don't like it that much, even after I had it modified for "glock knuckle".  But, I have a nice MTR holster for it and others so I keep it for those times I feel "blockish".   :th_thicon_lol:

Congrats on your buy and I hope its as great a gun as all the reviews say it is.
I'm on the 7 day weekend plan.  I'm retired!!

Let me know what you think of the compact.

I have a P2000sk right now, but I almost always carry my regular size P2000 - so, I wasn't interested in a compact. But, I loved the balance of the Centurion.

Yes, I have read a ton on it, and it seems like a great gun. We'll see what I think when I get to shoot it.

I prefer DA/SA for carry - so, I don't know if I will carry it or not. But, we'll see

I will say that it feels great in the hand with the medium backstrap that already comes on it. I have smaller hands, and I like that my hand sits closer to the trigger than it does on many other handguns.

What holster are you going to use for it?  I'm looking at an AZULA OWB leather paddle holster.  Never had one of this brand.  The paddle is even leather, which is kind of a throw back to the early days of paddle holsters.  I like to use paddle holsters or snap-on holsters because I usually switch to a smaller gun in a pocket holster around the house.  And with so many doctor appointments for my wife and I (old age ain't for sissies) it's easier on the me to use a paddle than a belt holster (every medical place I've been to here or in Virginia is a "victim hunting ground" if you know what I mean).  Never got used to an inside the waist band or clip on like so many skinny guys do.

Anyway, just wondering about the holster.  I like my compact (just got it) as the factory sent it too.  With the other two backstraps staying in the box with that stupid trigger lock.  That's what them make safes for.
