Anyone have experience with the Beretta Nano?
Local shop has them on a blowout, $209. I've been thinking a long time about replacing my j-frames in the carry rotation with a small 9. Intrigued by this, especially for the price.

I had one but got rid of it. You'd be better off with a 365.

I have one. I like it, decent trigger, handles and shoot well. Similar in size and function to the Shield.

Yeah, the P365 is a better all around pistol but for a whole lot more money. I would be all over that Nano for two bills. Smile

It's my regular CCW gun. Accurate, reliable, decent DA trigger. For $209, I would buy it immediately.

Here's two older posts of mine about my Nano and mods to it:

I bought one on clearance at Rural King for $250. Definitely worth it.

Called in advance to make sure it was there, drove an hour just to look at it and put it back on the shelf. I was really impressed with the pistol until I dry fired it. The trigger was absolutely horrible. Very long and very heavy. This is from someone who learned to shoot handguns on Smith & Wesson double actions. Unfortunately they only had the one in stock so no others to compare it to and see if this was just a bad example.

While there I did compare it side by side to the Sig P365 and Smith & Wesson Shield. The triggers on both of these pistols were remarkably better than the Beretta. I'm not exaggerating when I say the triggers on my j-frames are a dream compared to the Beretta. Disappointed and the search goes on for a small 9mm...

I'm a huge fan of the P365, it would be impossible to beat in this size.

Trust my life to one every single day, so I guess you could say I'd recommend it.

For 209? Buy 2.
