I too am using the Crossbreed.


I also have recently added the pinky finger extension to the 6 round mag.

For those that own and concealed carry a Nano; what is in your opinion on the best IWB holster for it? I am considering an IWB tuckable style from Old Faithful seen here, but considering the light weight of the Nano, is such a large holster necessary to spread the weight out or can I do with well with a more simple IWB holster like the Remora here?

Also regarding ammo. I read a few threads and saw some YouTube videos that claim issues using 115 grain ammo, but the reviews on paper claim no such issues. However they all claim that the Nano eats up higher end and 124 grain heavier ammo. What has been the experience of Nano owners on the FTF?

Given its use (concealed carry for personal protection at closed range) I don't see a benefit in swapping out the sights or adding extended magazines or laser aiming devices. Anything else you would consider necessary?
On the subject of swapping out the sights, you're the best judge of what works for you, but I've found that a Dawson FO front sight is a huge improvement on quick target acquisition. My old eyes really like to grab that bright front sight. I've also put Truglo TFO sights on 2 of my Sig's for the same reason. It makes a big difference for my putting more rounds on target in a given time.

Just an update. About 600 rounds through my Nano and I haven't had one issue with it since my initial 1 FTF when I first got it. I am still surprised with how manageable the recoil is and how naturally I can sight it in.
I have to give it a big 2 thumbs up. Yeah it may not be the best looking sub compact but its a winner in my book.

I have 150 rounds through mine with one feed issue and on FTE. Still not broken in yet.

I actually like the look of the Nano.

The Nano has become my primary carry gun in domestic areas. Who would've thought. I can pull it out and blast a can 30 feet away with no trouble. Any pop can messing with me is in for a lot of trouble.
