      Got another new Beretta.

      Like I need another Beretta...why yes, I did. This time I went way small and bought the Pico. Have not shot it yet, but am anticipating good results...well, for such a small pistol anyways.

      Cute little bugger. Sure drops in a front pocket nicely!

      I have read good things about it in the March issue of Combat Handguns. Nice how you can change frames so easily if you want to at a later point. Nice piece. Let us know how it shoots.

      Sure will, but I won't get the chance until next weekend. I ordered, from the Beretta store, a third extended finger grip magazine for 34 dollars. Three magazines is a must for me, seeing as though each only holds six rounds. I noticed the extra polymer grip frames are only 37 dollars. I just might order one in the FDE.

      I think you're going to like it if you don't mind the tiny grips & revolver-like trigger. I actually find these novelties fun to shoot because they're so tiny. I got one of the early Picos right after they were released & after one modification it's been 100% reliable with everything except Lehigh Xtreme Penetrators. It hits where I aim & goes with me everywhere. The most concealable gun I can think of that I would trust to keep me alive when the SHTF.

      Well, shot the Pico this morning, in between rain squalls blowing in. Said to hell with the paper targets because of the rain, and tossed some clays about against the backstop at random. The gun shot well, one FTF and one FTE, out of 50 rounds. It's recoil springs are really stiff yet, so I think that is why it choked twice with Federal FMJ ammo. I ran 18 rounds, three magazines, of Remington 88 grain JHP's through it without any problems...that ammo is hotter than the Federal fodder. The gun likes hotter ammo for sure.

      I have to agree with the reviewers on some of the youtube videos I watched before buying, and that is even though the pistol feels "ungainly" in the hand, it does not shoot like a red headed stepchild. Having real sights helps. The recoil, even with the stubby flat-based magazine, is a breeze. When you use the magazines with the grip extension, you can get a full grip on the gun and have no issues at all with it moving around in the hand. Basically, this little gun shoots.

      I want to get a chance to do some group shooting at about 7 and 10 yards, but that will have to wait until the weather agrees. I am happy with this little pistol, and think that Beretta did a good job with this one as well.

      I notice you covered up the serial#.
      was that intentional?

      Figured it was done as a precaution.

      Never really heard much conversation about the reasoning of the precaution.

      Sounds sensible with the many existing scams out there, and new scams coming out all the time.

      I usually photoshop out all but the first couple of numbers when I post a pic.

      Yes. Call me paranoid, but really only I need to know the serial number.
