Default Pico

Never had an inkling to buy a .380 til I read about the new Pico in Guns & Ammo. Really can't wait to check one out!

Looks like a nice little pistol. Just curious, is there any specific appeal of it for you?

I generally carry a ruger sr40c, but in the summer in shorts and a t shirt, it is not always comfortable to carry it. I like the thought of a pocket pistol, and this one has a nice look, good price and beretta quality. Again, haven't held it yet, so I may hate it when I put my hands on it!

Oh! And it's double action only, hammer fired, which is desirable to me if its in a pocket

Can't really ask for better reasons than those for wanting a pocket gun. Seems like a neat gun. Hope it works out for you.

I have NEVER had issue with anything Beretta has ever made.

The Pico offers the best of both worlds to me, through the articles I have read so far. Pocket sized, can be carried as a Back-up or EDC. Irregardless of what most people say about the .380, it's acceptable for QC shooting...I know I wouldn't want to get shot with one!!!!! just wondering how long before the .32ACP conversion is available....

I'd buy it as a package with the conversion kit, after it celebrates year of successful sales and reviews.
