Been debating a pocket "9" for 2 years now. I was leaning toward an S&W Shield and have shot the LC9, KAHR's and the kel-tec....My choice and it was the best (for me anyway) was the Beretta Nano... I am impressed. Just picked it up yesterday, The construction,utter reliability (3 types of ammo from 115 to 124+P) and what was most impressive is the accuracy. Popping golf balls on a consistant basis out to 15 yds. Fits an old Galco "quickslide" perfectly and the Blackhawk pocket holster also. The takedown is very simple and WOW...no dry fire trigger pull for take down. Kudos to Beretta, this one's a winner all around!!!!
