Anybody have the new Beretta Pico? and if so,what do you think? is it worth it? does it shoot well? is it reliable?

I was excited to potentially replace my P3AT with the pico. Even though it's a few ounces heavier I figured it would be a bit more shootable as it has much better sites. The thing that killed it for me is the size. It's a half inch taller than the P3AT which makes a pretty big difference in the pocket.

this is for the Beretta Marketing Department: Knock it off with the weird names for your pistols and you might sell a couple.
As an adult male, I am not going to buy a gun called the PICO or NANO.....I mean look at Ruger...LCP, SR9, LC9....and Walther...PPQ, PPX, PPS. No names here.
We don't need to name our little guns to make them any cuter than they already are. Enough already.

Every time I see the Beretta Nano, I have flashbacks to the old TV show with Robin Williams , Mork and Mindy.....NANOO, NANOO....and I hated that show.

Semi-rant off.

How do you feel about handguns named after snakes? Whatever a companies marketing division comes up with for names shouldn't effect ones decision to buy it or not. I personally hate snakes but really like my Python and Diamondback.

You don't get it? Nano & Pico are metric sizes of measurement; Pico is a smaller size than Nano. Small is the operative word regarding CCW. Not everything has to be a Night-Master 3000 X-1 Platinum, Gen 2.

I don't care if they name it the Fluffy Bunny Love Launcher. The name has no bearing on the function of effectiveness of the gun.

Fluffy Bunny Love Launcher? That's tough!

And I thought I had an issue with acquiring a .357 Magnum revolver with "Ladysmith" down the side of it.

Dude, you made me spew sippin' bourbon on my screen through my nose!!!

Once I got the burning subsided and thought about your creative naming convention above, it made me seriously wonder about you. It sounds like something you'd find in an adult store. Just sayin.

Oh, and don't be surprised it one of the mods makes that your new screen name. It's too good to let it slide.
