partriarch: Nice review. Bought a Nano some months ago, and am quite impressed with
it, considering the small size, light weight, and shooting qualities of
this piece. Bought the Trijicon night sights for mine, which makes a world
of difference in low light situations. Also put on a Pachmayr No. 4 "Grip
Glove" for slightly enhanced controlability. Have other pistols I could
carry (.40 S&W and .380 ACP), but find myself returning to the Nano as the
best combination of values. I like this piece for personal defense, and
carry it all day where allowed by law.
Don Clark: would you recommend this over the S&W bodyguard for conceal carry??
a4dude: Nice review, i'm seriously considering buying a Nano.
DevineCrimsonThunder: That nano has a terrible bore axis. No external slide lock? I'll stick with
jfourn295: Seems like its pretty much a mini glock lol
coldgripva: @amacro11 Thanks! It's a great little gun. Handles nicely. You'll be happy
AGUIRD1: thanks for the time...what is the difference in kick/recoil between the
nano and MP compact? is it much different? i want the nano for the wife,but
if the mp has less kick than i would go with that since there both great
Shawn Hinzman: And the sights on the LCP are pretty much nonexistant... just a notch
milled into the top of the slide.
coldgripva: :) Actually, I've had the same thought!
coldgripva: .380 is "adequate". People will discuss "adequate" calibre all day long :)
LCP is a last resort pistol, meant for very short range. It is small and
can be carried in pockets, etc. where other guns might not go as well. What
you want from the gun is most important. If this is your first gun, I would
recommend something larger.
Rolwhite: The M&P sucks I had it, and sold it with a few weeks, not a accurate gun.
coldgripva: The M&P has less kick. It shoots pretty much like a full size.
jcaled24: I've heard good and bad nano reviews, but there's one word consistently
used to describe it...... solid.
okcjoesos: Lots of good point. Good review.
Karl Hammaker: The Nano was originally designed for 40 S&W, but Beretta came out with the
9mm first. They haven't announced, as far as I know, when they will produce
amacro11: Nice review I'm looking forward to getting one soon well done!
Cosmicblast77: What turns me off about a lot of guns these days like Ruger and Beretta is
all the lawyer tags that they engrave on the gun.. like (Read Manual before
Operating Firearm). Do they really need to write that on the gun. Glock
fxdwg85: great review
garageguy879: good video,the best feature is the lack of features,,no snaggs,,what part
of Va are you located? I'm at the southwestern part,,the price for a Nano
here is over $600.
BHammer: Can it use 40 S&W?
don seguin: I love my ranger green nano very nice and solid pistol
joerigg14: Do you pocket carry the Nano? If so what is our thoughts?
Vanessa Garza Vise: I LOVE MY NANO! Now to find the perfect holster:/ i ordered the one from
Beretta, but i'm sending it back. I don't like it.
LVen21: Glad you mentioned the trigger pull on the LCP, because I was thinking of
replacing my Kel-Tec due to it's long trigger pull. I had the same
experience at the range when I first went to shot the Kel-Tec. I kept
pulling and pulling and thought something was wrong with the gun. It just
would not fire. If the LCP is like that, I will save my money and buy the
Nano. It has much better sights and it's a 9mm. Enjoyed the video.
coldgripva: @bran1085 Thanks!
coldgripva: @fthcougar Thanks! i appreciate the feedback.
coldgripva: Thanks. and yeah, I agree on the trigger pull ...
heffe67: Fantastic review. Nano is one of the carry guns i've been considering, and
it's now at the top of my list!
1979rdg: according to the manual the snap caps do not protect the firing pin from
damage beretta recommends them for loading and unloading purposes they
recommend you use the derooster button to derooster the gun
fthcougar: nice vid.
coldgripva: The LCP definitely has it's place. It's a great up close personal defense
weapon; it fits in a pocket much better than the Nano. But firing a couple
hundred rounds at the range through the LCP is not a fun day. The shorter
barrel and the spring required to work the small slide give the gun more
frickbot: Pisses me off that i'm a better shot with my nano than my px4 compact
because I really like my px4 more but its all about the end results. 8/8
hitting a can at 10 yards is good for me and I can do it consistently with
crudblue: Excellent review. I have been looking at the LC9, Nano, and Shield and your
review has helped me stay with the Nano pick even with it's reported FTE
issues. I tried the LC9 at the range and it indeed does have quite a bit of
muzzle flip and very long trigger pull.
Steelers86860: The lack of a slide release makes it harder to clear jams.
William Elliott: Dude I own a Ruger lcp I'm no kitty so the so called slap isn't present for
me I just bought the nano today
MrBigden37: Actually you are supposed to slingshot the slide in any combat self defense
reload, not the slide release.
Shawn Hinzman: LCP is a VERY close range, last resort pistol. Better as a back up gun. I
will tell you that it IS NOT fun to shoot. It hurts.
Henry Cherry: Thumbs up on your review on the Nano
coldgripva: Go for it. LCP has it's place ... but I can't go fire a couple of hundred
rounds through it at the range and say I had a good time at the end of the
day ... it's great for up close personal defense; it's also smaller and
easier to put in a pocket than the Nano. But it definitely has more snap
than the Nano as a result of the short barrel and slide.
Terakasi: I agree with the author. The LCP is not something you have fun putting 50
rounds through at the range. I do carry the LCP regularly, and it shoots
well, but it starts stinging after a couple of clips. We can't all be big
burley, Sasquatch types.
Stance Punk: no slide release. just pull back the slide.
