Anyone have experience with the Beretta Nano?

I'm thinking of purchasing a Beretta Nano in 9mm. Anyone have experience with these firearms?? They seem to be a very reliable firearm and made for concealed carry. Would you recommend them for reliability and carry??

Shoots good, a lot easier to handle than I thought, fits in pockets (front and back) and up to about 50ft groups pretty good. I like it.. I have no idea about longevity, but so far so good.

Nano

Looks pretty short tho, do they make a longer mag for it do you know to prevent the pinkie finger overhang??

I'm not sure if anyone makes a longer mag for the Nano, though in my opinion it would be a little pointless. The upside to super-small single-stack 9mms is that they're super-concealable. Once you extend the grip length to accommodate your pinky you're extending one of the most important dimensions in a handgun's concealability. At that point you might as well go with one of the bigger sub-compacts that are easier to shoot, like the PPS or Sheild.

I love mine. It shoots surprisingly well for its size. Beretta started shipping a +2 magazine baseplate. Nice idea!

Very high bore axis for a striker fire gun but my fiance likes hers a lot I say if you like it in your hand go for it and Beretta makes extended mags but good luck finding them in stock

I was an early adopter of a NANO and never had a single problem until I loaded up a mag full of WWB 115 grain FMJ. I had my one and only issue and the NANO hasn't seen any WWB since. It was a year old this past Thanksgiving.

The NANO is a great gun and the retail prices have come down a lot since they came out. It conceals beautifully either IWB or OWB. It is also a pretty accurate shooter.
