I have had one as a carry piece for 6 months. It is a bit top heavy but I have grown to love it. I have read reviews where it doesn't like light (115 gr.) ammo, but I have not had any FTE issues with them. I carry with Hornady Critcal Defense 115 grain. I think Beretta has an extended mag that is now available. I might pick one up for the range, but for carry it is good for me as is. Hope that helps!
