    I bought a Nano!

    I was headed to Academy Sports to buy a Sig Sauer P290, but saw a Beretta Nano. I compared the two and chose the Nano. I liked the simplicity and feel. I usually polish the trigger and hammer sears on all my guns, but it was so smooth I opted to leave it alone. I got a Galco Tuck n Go that fit well and a pocket holster. So far I love it. I will take it out and put a couple hundred rounds through it this weekend and post my thoughts. Here's to hoping it lives up to my expectations. I plan on it being my new summer carry. If it does well, I may be selling my S&W 642 with Crimson Trace grips...lol.

    I am also curious as fo how others are carrying their Nano. PS, I like pics ;-)

    Looking forward to a range report.

    if you get another, name them Mork & Mindy

    than your best bet for a holster would be egg shaped

    I FINALLY found a Nano locally. A bit more expensive than some places on-line. At least I was able to handle it. Now my problem is get a Nano, or an XDs...

    Neither-get a LC9 and you won't have to worry about size or reliability!

    I decided against the LC9 because of the metal shavings issues. Love the Mork and Mindy joke. Brings back my childhood...lol

    I have a Nano and like the design and concept of the gun overall. Mine went back to Beretta for a ramp and chamber polish plus a new extractor. So far it has been trouble free. I am now experimenting with different reload formulas.

    I carry mine in a IWB Blackhawk #8. Since the photo below, I have added a Talon grip, I find that it greatly improves handling and feel of the gun in my hand..

    Hmmm... did you ever figure out what was causing the shavings. I haven't heard that ever being an issue. Hope you were able to resolve it before you sold it.

    I looked at a Nanno at the range/gun shop yesterday. They seem to be pretty decent and the prices aren't bad, but I think I'd want to shoot one before taking the plunge.
    Chose a weapon that goes bang EVERY time!

    I found out about the LC9 issues before I bought it. And I like ugly guns. If its ugly to me then it ought to be downright terrifying to a BG!

    +1 for the Talon Grip, big difference. I carry mine in a Hidden Ally by High Noon Holsters.

    Hmmm.... you probably should have done a little more research as you missed one of the best (if not THE BEST) pocket pistol out there!
