Do you think my wife will have troubles shooting it?
I've got one and the recoil isn't bad at all.
I may be a girl, but I can protect myself!
My EDC is a Glock 27 I an 5'9 and 205 and I carry it in a fist 1a that conceals well. I have been in the market for a 9mm carry gun and the nano looks like an outstanding option
The beretta nano is a great ccw weapon. It has a 6 round magazine and a 71/2 pound trigger. The heavy trigger is a problem for some, but that is the built in safety factor for this weapon. You must commit to the trigger pull in order to be accurate with it. It is a very accurate weapon but it is not a target gun. I have had no problems with it at all. It does not come with night sites so you must add them yourself. It is very easy to conceal in a pocket holster or an IWB holster. As with all weapons, one must shoot them to become familiar with the way they operate and to be accurate. If you are a pistol shooter, this should not be a problem. The recoil is much easier than expected for such a short barrel. The trigger reset is fast. Hope this heps.
That's pretty scary!

I just picked up my Nano on Sunday. Saturday evening we stopped by the local hardware store, which I do often to see if they have anything fun or new in but more so to see if they had any snubbies in stock. I saw the Nano sitting on the bottom shelf all by itself. I felt really bad for it, I had seen some reviews on it and they sounded positive and the sticker was 409.99 which is decent from what I've found for a small semi-auto in today's market. I came home, searched the internet high and low for reviews. By midnight I had decided that I'll be there as soon as the doors open to pick it up. I went up there at 10:00am, it was still there so I took it home.
I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I can really tell that I'm going to love carrying the Nano. IMO, the size is perfect. It's solid feeling but light enough that you don't really notice it. I've been carrying a 1911 compact and an XD9 Service model around. It fits in the pants pocket, barely. I have it in a hybrid holster for a full size Sig 1911 to wear around the house. It clips in there good but isn't perfect. I've ordered a Remora holster for it, and will probably pickup a Beretta BU Hybrid later (unless I just love the Remora to much.)
The next trick is going to be finding 9mm to get out and shoot.... I have a little, but not as much as I'd like. No one around here has any to pickup.
I just recently picked up a Nano for myself and will be using it as an EDC. Since it doesn't have the traditional safety, are any/all of you carrying it with a
chambered round or practicing racking a round while you're drawing. Not new to firearms but am new to CCW....
The Nano is a good pistol. Also they are coming out with a 40 and 45.
Play in the heavens baby girl. For we will again one day see you.

To all the Nano friends here I have a set ( One ) of the Talon grips in Granulate texture that I will gladly send you. All you have to do is contact me and if you want to send something back OK ,if not I am a firm believer in Pay it Forward :) I wanted the rubber ones and they are on the way .....

Thanks for the replies Gents. I had read about the long pull and finally got to shoot her today, about 50 rounds. Not really that hard to get used to, and I also learned that my followup shots are not as accurate as the first one. Ordered a Talon rubber grip and some Pierce extensions this evening. That should help? have a Remora and a Foxx holster coming too. Can't wait to run some rounds thru it...............
