Hi all new member here but I have been lurking for a little while.
Right now its pretty impossible to lay hands on any compact guns around here but I have touched a couple guns including the S&W shield and a Nano. I actually like the feel of the Nano but I am concerned about reliability. I went to my local range that rents guns and asked to shoot their Nano and they told me it was in the shop because it was broken. He then went on to say all of their Berettas break pretty often. Added to that comment, is the 1-3 year warranty compared to many other guns that are lifetime.
The shield was ok as well and I can live with not having a lefty slide release but I really want to be able to hit the mag release easily shooting left handed if I can at all.
Now I realize that any gun like this I purchase is not going to be shot like a range gun does but still. Is there any other options in the same price range that I should try to find to lay hands on or should I just drop the cash on the Beretta and hope for the best?
I see a lot of talk about Kahrs but I am not familiar with the brand.
