    Strange question about the Nano

    Ok so I've been on this site a while and been carrying for a few months. It's almost summer and my G26 is on nightstand duty and I feel comfortable with putting my Nano as my CCW pistol for a the summer.-150 rounds only 1 FTF; G26 did the same thing.

    But anyway I have also decided that I'm ready to carry with one in the chamber as well. So I loaded 7 rounds and put one in the chamber and carried it at the beginning of this week. Did something stupid Wednesday night.----While talking on the phone with my brother was telling him something about how the magazine was dropping I cleared the chamber then dropped the magazine...yeah the chamber was loaded and I had to clear it again. I know stupid; the pistol was pointing toward the bed though.

    Anyway so I go to reload my magazine with 7 because Nano is 6+1. Stupid thing jammed open when I went to cycle the round in. I got it cleared easy but instead of 7 rounds I'm carrying 6. Has anyone else had any issues with Nano's or any other pistol doing something like that? Sorry for the long backstory.

    If you're trying to put 7rds in a 6rd mag that's the issue. There's too many rounds stuffed in the mag and it's not letting the rounds strip out of the mag properly. 6+1 means load 6, insert mag, rack the slide to load one in the chamber, take out the mag, put another round in the mag to top it off to 6.

    Yeah clear that up did you put 7 rounds in a 6 round mag .. That there is the issues

    You mght try other mags if you did not ... Sound like it could be a mag issues .. Had that with khar would not seat the mag if more then 4 or 5 round were in the 7 round mag .. Changed the mag no issues

    My daughter did the same. You can force in the 7th round but it does not feed well at all. Only do six rounds and you will be fine. The Nano seems to be a great little firearm.

    I've only held a Nano and never shot one but that has to be the issue. 5 pounds of you know what in a 10 pound bag. Lol

    Seriously though, enjoy your gun and always carry when possible. Best of luck.

    As far as I know, every automatic in the house will operate with magazine capacity + one.

    I never bother to load up for concealed carry use with magazine capacity plus one "up the spout." A loaded magazine is placed in the gun, a round is chambered, and away we go.

    - Good thing you decided to chamber a round in the gun. Imagine if you didn't and the second scenario happened when you needed to use the gun...
