Breaking in a Beretta the fun way

Last month at SHOT Show, I talked to Marine, champion shooter and firearms instructor Ernest Langdon spent a year of his life running up the rounds on a Beretta 9mm that just wouldn’t die. Langdon (who has won national and world championships with Berettas) is well known on the training circuit and he is a very gregarious guy. However, his recent Beretta journey wore on his nerves a bit.

You see, he ran 50,000 rounds through a PX4, and it still works after some routine maitenance of sorts.

“That’s a lot more ammo than most people realize,” said Langdon, who dutifully put box after box through the handgun under all conditions.
