Default Nano

Has anyone checked out the Nano yet? Kinda looks like a baby Glock. I have a Glock 17 and really like it, the only thing I can say bad about it is it is too big for cc. I think I am looking for something that I can back pocket like a wallet in 9mm. Just wondering how the Nano stacks up to say the LC9.

There is nothing in a 9mm you can back pocket. Front pocket yes. Back pocket -- you can't hide a thick lump, you also can't access a .90 or 1" wide gun very quickly in a rear pocket and it will stand out. Last you have to sit on something that will not conform to a seat or your rearend.
Look both pistols up and do your own comparison for size or most LGS will let you try to see what you think. Add the cm9 to the group.

Check out the S&W M&P Shield. It just released months ago. Heard nothing but good reviews about it rather than the Nano. The problem is nobody has it, demand is greater than the supply.

Bought my M&P Shield a couple of months ago and love it. Tried the Nano but found the trigger pull to be long and heavy. The trigger on the M&P is a dream compare to the Nano.

I shot one at the range. I must say it's by no means a Baby Glock. The Nano is a quality pistol. My very first handgun was a Baby Glock and words can't describe the bad experience I had.

The nano is the only compact semi-auto firearm that I know of that can literally fire pressed into something, I saw a magazine guy press it down into a phone book on the ground and fire it, the action shot and chambered a round, I was shocked.
