Introducing the Beretta Nano with Destinee from FateofDestinee
As a woman looking for new concealed carry options, I prefer the size of the Nano as it is easier to conceal in some of the tighter clothing I wear than some other sub-compact options. This one is chambered in 9mm Luger (9x19mm Parabellum), but I believe they will be offering it chambered in .40 S&W as well. It has interchangeable three (3) dot sights, which is a style I like for the sight picture. They are adjustable using a small hex wrench, and your fingers, so no need to go to a gunsmith to alter or upgrade your sights. The steel barrel, slide, and chassis (housed within the fiberglass reinforced technopolymer grip frame) give the gun a weight and solid feel that I think helps me keep it steadier, compared to some other sub compact models with polymer frames. The trigger has a double action style trigger pull (with a Glock style drop safety). I think that's good for conceal carry because that round isn't going to fire unless you mean it. These are some of my first impressions of the new Beretta Nano; however, I also want to talk to a couple of other people to get their impressions. Hippy Chick: Peace, Love, and Beretta. I'm really into this pistol. Beretta didn't reinvent the sub compact, they just made it a little better. 500 years of history in one pistol. Can you dig it? Professor Des: The fiberglass reinforced technopolymer grip frame houses the stainless steel chassis (the serialized portion of the firearm). This means that the grip frame can be replaced and is completely customizeable. Emo Girl: Features I appreciate about the Nano: black nitride finish, no snag edges, easily concealable, and interchangeable sights, so I can change to night sights without taking it to a gunsmith.
And because I think it's such a cool looking handgun, here's some gun porn.
