Gun Review - The Beretta Cx4 Storm

Over the years many people have asked what firearm would be best to have on hand during a zombie outbreak. Unfortunately this is an impossible question to answer as there are simply too many factors and variables to consider in choosing a firearm. However with a little common sense one can narrow down the choices to a reasonable number. After that it becomes a matter of personal preference. So from time to time I will review one of the firearms that I use or have in my collection.

My current anti Zombie firearm of choice, the one that I keep on hand. Is the Beretta Cx4 Storm in 9mm. The Beretta Cx4 Storm is a semiautomatic personal defense carbine designed for reliability and simplicity of use. It uses a blowback type locking system to ensure great reliability. It fires standard pistol ammunition for ease of supply, low cost and low recoil. It is simple and easy to use. Its smooth lines and rounded edges are snag free, facilitating easy handling and rapid shouldering and aiming.

Now there are people who will question my choice of the Beretta Cx4 Storm. They will point out that the pistol ammunition lacks the range and stopping power of rifle ammunition. They are of course correct in this statement. The 9mm or 45cal are not the most powerful rounds out their. However I believe they are more than sufficient for most Zombie situations that you are likely to encounter. I also believe that the advantages of the lower powered ammunition more than make up for the disadvantages. And lets be honest most people do not have the skill to take advantage of the benefits of high-powered rifle ammo. You may have an 800 yard rifle but can you hit any thing at that distance. I doubt you can. When the s@*t hits the fan, the best gun to have is the gun you know how to use.


  1. More great reasons to consider the CX4 are that, like its 'sister' pistol, it's fully ambidextrous, utilizes common magazines, and is low-power enough that your 'better half' is likely to be comfortable shooting it, thereby multiplying to number of folks you can rely on.


  2. Great points Snoop! Glad you mentioned it
