Not quite as described but fine leather. (Done)

 

First the honey: the leather is pleasantly soft – a ‘luxury leather’ feel – but also appears strong and is nicely tanned, no dye transfer and perfectly molded to the Px4’s shape. It's really a fine piece of work. The belt loops are sufficiently angled for a ‘good feel’ at either strong-side or cross-draw carry and also nicely sized at 2” x 3/16”. The back-strap fastener at the thumb release wall is reinforced with steel and finished rivet that make releasing the snap a solid and crisp push. The ‘pancake’ design makes for a very secure, close-to-the-body holster that rides tightly but comfortably, although just a little ‘high’ for my taste, just a little. Then the vinegar: 1) unlike the description the holster is not a “closed barrel end” but an open holster (you can see the tip of the barrel, slide, and guide rod through the open bottom of the holster) which is better in my book, anyway (this sentence could almost appear in the “First the honey” section). 2) The holster does not have a second piece of leather (like many high-end holster manufacturers do), say at the top opening of the slide-side which could hold the holster open enough to make for either a fast draw or easy holster – the molded leather and the tension inherent in the two parallel pieces of leather grip the gun so it’s slow to draw. 3) Unlike the picture and there is no description either way, the holster’s back-strap fastener does not snap close unless the hammer is fully cocked and out of the way of the strap. The strap will not realistically snap close over an either uncocked or half-cocked Px4. I’ve been able to do it, and was even for a short time hopeful it was only a leather-break-in problem, but the amount of pushing, pulling, fiddling, stretching will ensure I could never draw or holster the pistol except with two hands and the stitching or leather would break under that kind of stress. Ha! So, it’s a carry a holster that you carry cocked and ____. Oh, I can’t say “locked” like a 1911, because unless you have the striker version of the Px4, you have to carry your double-action pistol cocked, safety off, which makes me sweat thinking about it, albeit safe with the strap between the hammer and the firing pin, the holster covering the trigger guard, and the very effective “firing-pin block” of the Px4. Whew, okay, this was only going to take ten minutes, but I wanted to be thorough. So, I hopes this helps in your purchase decision.

Fits the .45, too

 

Despite Beretta's admonition that this holster fits only the 9mm and .40 versions of the Px4, I took a chance and ordered one for my full-size .45. It fits well, tight but not so much that it will bind in a rapid draw when worn with a suitably stiff gun belt, such as the one Beretta offers on-line. It's a good thing, too, because it is about your only option for a decent OWB, leather concealment holster for the Px4.

Well made but does not fit subcompact.

 

I ordered this as a carry rig for my PX4SC. Turns out, the holster is too long - it is sized for the barrel length of the full sized gun. I'm pretty disappointed to say the least. I'm sure there are other pancake holsters for the subcompact.

PX4 Holster

 

I purchased this one thinking it would give a little adustment to feel next to the hip, which it does. However, I found it very difficult to holster the weapen with only ONE hand, strapping it down.

What happened?

 

This one really confused me....I recieved my order for this holster for my px4 subcompact the other day along with a pair of the green line jeans. Which are incredibly comfortable by the way...I put the holster aside to check it out later. When I did finally get to it later that evening I noticed it seemed very sturdy and well made. Maybe even to well made....When I tried to open the holster by unsnapping the retaining strap, it would not budge. I gave it a couple tugs, and still nothing. I tried giving it a little twist and pull. Not opening....At this point I was a little frustrated that a simple snap would not do its job and unsnap. I gave it another good pull and success, it opened. WELLLLL not really.....I was glad it finally opened, but what happened was the snap retainer snapped off and was broken off, but still snapped together on the strap side! How does this happen?! Is it fused together by weld or locktight!? I've sent the holster back and once it is recieved, I'll order a replacement. I'm just hoping the snap on the next one is a bit looser and functions how it should. Follow up review to come.

PX4 STORM SC HOLSTER

 

I'VE HAD THIS HOLSTER FOR OVER A YEAR AND WEAR IT WHEN WORKING AT A FRIENDS GUN SHOP AND WHEN TRAVELING OUT OF ILLINOIS. IT IS BY FAR THE BEST CC HOLSTER I OWM. HIDES WELL EVEN WITH A TEE SHIRT ON AND VERY COMFORTABLE TO WEAR ALL DAY LONG. IT FITS MY SUB COMPACT NICELY AND I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY ISSUES AT ALL WITH IT. A BIT PRICEY BUT WELL WORTH THE BUCKS.

Nice Holster

 

Very nice fit and feel to the full size PX4 9mm. Takes a little while to break in and form to your hand gun. The holster is actually an open end but the full size PX4 does not extend past the holster end. Very nice.

Beretta Pancake Holster PX4 Storm

 

Great holster right out of the box. My weapon fits perfectly. Sturdy yet moves with my body. Feels like it's not even there.

Comfortable Holster

 

This is a very comfortable holster! It is so form fitting that even when I wear a tighter Dri-Fit type shirt, you can't even see my full size, PX4 Storm under it! It even makes my firearm feel lighter, so I don't even notice that I am carrying it.
