Well today I took for the first time my Beretta Nano 9mm to the range and
in summary I'm very happy with it.
Some specs about this gun:

This is the ammo I used today (No failures to report)
Because this will be one of my carry guns I make sure I test several boxes of what I will carry plus FMJ that have the similar grains, etc. (in this case 124) and I got two boxes laying around of 147 so I also brought that.
100 rounds of 147gr 9mm JHP Winchester Personal Protection (white box)
300 rounds of 124gr 9mm FMJ Winchester NATO (white box)
20 rounds of 124gr 9mm JHP + P Winchester PDX1
20 rounds of 124gr 9mm JHP + P Gold Dot (This will be my carry ammo)
I must say, that my first shots where not that impressive… I was shooting to the left really bad the trigger took me a little bit by surprise.
My excuse :
You know this is my first DAO/9 pound trigger type of gun so it will take me some time.
But the trigger is very smooth, so I had no problems adjusting to it once I started getting the feel of it.
My FIRST shots with the Nano! (8 yards-24 ft)
Once I got used to the trigger I was able to start hitting the target without problems. I'm impressed by the accuracy of this little gun. The only problem I had with it was that after 400+ rounds my shooting hand (palm) was not happy... so I stopped
I'm looking forward for Beretta to start offering things like extended mags and night sights on it...
I will recommend this gun to anyone looking for a small single stack 9mm.

That's it.. that's my range report.
