    Beretta micro

    A sales rep friend told me months ago that Beretta was coming out with a micro. Today he showed me a photo of a pre production beretta micro. Looks nothing like other Berettas. I would have guessed it to be a Kahr. He thinks it will be offered in 380, 9mm and 40S&W. Nothing in the picture indicates size, but it appears to be very small.

    I dunno anymore. I've had six pistols smaller than my uber-reliable Glock 19 and 26. Three Kahrs, and three LCPs. The Kahrs were so troublesome that they are long gone, and while I still have the three LCPs, two have been back twice to Ruger to fix issues (one has been flawless - so far).

    So...in my experience micro pistols are temperamental and troublesome little beasts. If I could carry a revolver in my suit pocket without printing I would, but they are just too large.

    I certainly would not be the first in line to buy any new micro pistol, period. I'd wait at least a full year.

    Humm...I say more info/proof would be nice. I wonder if there is some "leak" out on the web?

    Sounds like you should give the Walther PPS a try.

    Even if the Beretta had what looked like the perfect micro, I'd wait a year to make sure the bugs had been worked out...but it sounds good!

    How much more like a kahr than a beretta did it look? Striker fired? External hammer? Manual safety? I know you said there wasn't a reference for size, but did the grip look adequate for a full three fingers?

    I took a look at one. Other than being thinner, it's not really any smaller than my Glocks, depending on which mag you use in the PPS.

    Biggest deal breaker is the PPS' mag release - completely different than what I'm used to, would require significant re-training.

    Finally, the PPS is no pocket gun. Believe me, I've tried, and in a business suit, anything bigger than a PM9 prints like crazy.

    my guess from a 20 second view would be, polymer, striker fired,no visible safety, short grip ( two finger would be my guess)
