I have both the tomcat (.32) and the bobcat (.22) - one warning about the older tomcat pistol is that the frame and the slide both broke on my pistol. When Beretta replace the pistol, the slide was about 1.5 times thicker (heavier) and the frame appeared to be bolstered also.
Aside from that, they are both sweet little pistols. Shoot where you aim them, relatively little reaction, and for a "close-in" weapon, function well.
I carry a 9mm concealed on my belt, and one of these in a pocket.
