I like the fact it has simple user adjustable sights.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
My walther has a glock type trigger. It seems everyone is making the single stack 9mm that glock should be.
That's a heck of a price!
There have been at least 2 other threads on this gun - lots of buzz about it.
Bottom line for me is that it is slightly larger and heavier than a Kahr PM9/CM9, so I don't have a need for one. A bit too large for the pocket role, IMHO. Otherwise, seems like a nice option.
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

Man is it ugly. Like, Taurus ugly.
But if it works...
Note to self: The only way to win is not to play.
Beauty is really in the eye of the beholder...I think it looks just fine.
Granted, Kahrs are easier on the eyes, and Kimber's solo is better still (though a nightmare in other ways).
Let's wait and see how the nano will do in the areas of reliability, trigger, shootability, etc.

There's been a few discussions on this since it was previewed. One of them here: Beretta Nano - redux

I need to find a gun attractive in order to get my interest.
Beretta 92? Check.
Sig 225? Check.
Desert Eagle? Double check.
Seecamp? Triple check.
Beretta Nano? Bzzzzzz.
I have not seen one of these guns, but I went to the Beretta website and looked at the picture and specs. It appears to be similar to the other polymer frame 6+1 capacity 9mm guns on the market. My main consideration in purchasing one of these would be reliability and safety. Small guns can be unreliable, so I like to have one that has established a good reputation in this regard. And for pocket carry I value safety very highly. This gun appears to have a Glock-like safety arrangement with a hinged trigger and no external safety lever. I would personally require a good holster in that case, either in the pocket or wherever else it is carried.
But 6+1 9mm guns can be very useful and concealable, and Beretta has a good reputation, so I would consider one of these. Here are the specs:
Caliber - 9mm

Overall Length - 5.63”
Overall Height - 4.17”
Overall Width - .90”
Barrel Length - 3.07”

Frame Chassis - Stainless Steel Insert
Grip Frame - Technopolymer
Slide Material - 4140
Slide Finish - Pronox
Capacity - 6 + 1 Rounds
Weight Unloaded - 17.67 oz
MSRP - $475

The "de-activates the guy" safety thing you need a ballpoint pem to work just makes me loose interest.
As they say "Beauty is in the eye of thee beholder", but the main thing to look at is how well will it shoot and is it easy to carry. At $400.00 dollars it looks like a winner.
