I went to the range and compared shooting the Glock 26, the Beretta Nano, and the Ruger LC9.

The first thing I noticed was the grips. The Glock has a double stack magazine versus the single stack magazines of the Beretta and the Ruger, so the grip is wider and bulkier. The Nano has a slim grip, but it's round and that works well for my smaller hands. The LC9 has a slim grip similar to the Nano, but it feels more top heavy.

Next, I'll compare the weight. The Glock 26 is the heaviest of the three, but it felt well balanced and didn't interfere with my ability to keep it on target. The Beretta is a little heavier than the LC9 and that gives it a more solid feel. That helps me to keep it steadier. The Ruger LC9 is the lightest of the three, but the weight doesn't feel as well balanced (feels top heavy) and I have a harder time keeping it on target in comparison to the other two.

One thing I compared once I started shooting was the differences in muzzle flip and recoil. The Glock 26 has the least muzzle flip and recoil, and I think it directly contributed to me being able to stay on target better. The Beretta Nano has a surprising amount of muzzle flip and because of that, it took me longer to recover between shots and reacquire my target. The Ruger has some muzzle flip and recoil, but nothing substantial enough to negatively impact my ablility to stay on target.

The trigger on the Glock 26 has the lightest trigger pull that broke near to the front of the pull. I don't know if I'd want that for concealed carry (CCW), but I do think it helped me shoot more accurately. The Nano has the longest and heaviest trigger pull of the three. It was further back than I had anticipated, but it is smooth. I had the hardest time adjusting to the trigger pull of the Ruger LC9. It isn't as far back as the Beretta, but it isn't as light as the Glock's pull. It also felt non-uniform, and that made keeping my shots on target more difficult.

My results were that I shot the most accurately and kept my groupings the tightest. With the Beretta, I feel that any accuracy I may have gained with having the grip that fit my hand well, I lost trying to work around the muzzle flip. Overall, with the Ruger LC9, I didn't shoot as well as with either the Beretta or the Glock. I think the non-uniform trigger pull and the unbalanced grip contributed to that.

One thing that I wanted to mention that wasn't in my graphic was the sight picture for the three pistols. The Glock 26 uses a notch and post, which I don't normally shoot as well with. This time, I was surprised that I did better than usual with that style of sight. I'm more accustomed to (and prefer) three dot sights. The Beretta Nano has three dot sights and I found I could easily align the sight picture. While the Ruger LC9 also has three dot sights, the dots themselves are very tiny and I noticed I had a hard time even seeing them, and a more difficult time lining up my sight picture.

The Nano performed well for me. I put 200 rounds through it without lubrication and I didn't get a single error, misfeed, or jam. Using the same ammo, I did get one jam with the Glock 26, which I thought was ironic. I think that the Beretta is competitive within the market of pocket size (sub compact) single stack 9mm Luger (Parabellum) handguns.
