I have been away for a while in that time I have been searching for a pocket 9mm. My EDC is a Kimber Ultra Crimson. But for some reason, I just had this itch for a pocket 9mm.
I researched em all. The new SIG 938, the Taurus Slim, the baby Glock(not very pocket), Ruger LC9, Kahr CW9, and the Beretta PX4sc.
I ended up getting the Beretta Nano. What I liked about the gun were a few things. Great size, just right. 2. was the DAO trigger. 9lb pull makes it safe to carry loaded with no safeties to bother with. 3. was it came with 2 magazines. 4. was its modular design. A .40 sw I hear will be able to drop right in. If I understand right. 5. Were the positive reviews far outnumbered the bad reviews. online reviews I have come to believe are as believable as a politican's promise. So the bad reviews I read seemed just to be people with buyers remorse or just very little skill with a gun.
I thought I had more but reasons but thats what comes to mind right now. You all know, or least the people I have been around a while, know I have no digital camera. Ill have to borrow one before I can post pics. The gun I got was the 2nd the store had. One was on display and the other was in the back not touched since it was packed away for shipping. You know I got the latter.

a snipit from the above article reads--The cover story in the August issue of GUNS Magazine reviews the latest 9mm pocket pistol from Beretta: the “Slim 9” Nano. This unique striker-fired, double-action-only pocket pistol withstood an extensive series of tests by GUNS contributing editor Massad Ayoob — who gave the Nano a ringing endorsement.
“The Beretta Nano joins a growing number of ‘slim-9s’ designed for concealed carry,” writes Ayoob. “It has the very useful feature of stand-off capability, good sights, a trigger you can live with and some other cool stuff. If you are in the market for a pistol of this genre, the Beretta Nano is definitely worth a look.”
