I've handled but not fired it. Seems well made and more robust than other polymer pistols in the size range. Nice for concealed carry because it doesn't have an external slide stop lever. I have a Kahr PM9 to fill that role. I do highly recommend the Kahr (if your hands aren't gigantic).

I will second that about Kahrs. I had always been a Glock kind of guy until I discovered Kahr pistols. I've handled several Kahr models and have been extremely impressed with the ergos, funtionality, and quality (even in the mini-.380 model). To date, I've put several hundred rounds through my Kahr 9mm without any significant issues or problems. (No stove-piping, misfeeds, etc.). Another nice thing about Kahr is that they also offer an economical line of pistols, known as the CW series. Basically, you get essentially the same firearm (sans a few machining processes, an extra mag, and an adjustable front sight), for a fraction of the cost. The 9mm is also relatively lightweight, weighing in at about 17 oz. unloaded.

Sorry, I got off topic there. :o To answer your question, I just had a chance to see the Nano up close this past weekend. I was a little disappointed, really. I was hoping it would be somewhat smaller and less bulky. (This is my main contention with Beretta's larger PX4 Storm models. It's like carrying a brick in your pocket :( ).

I hear yah Tony. I would love for carry here. It won't happen in Chicago. You might need to move down here to the better half of the state.

I am a huge fan of Beretta firearms BUT if I am going polymer I am going Glock or Kahr. That is my personal opinion. I have spent a lot of trigger time behind both and they performed as one would expect from either brand, squeeze the trigger they go bang ... everytime. I am more partial to Glocks as I just shoot much better with them. John

thanks for the replies everyone, i will have to check out the Glocks and Kars as well. My service pistol is a Beretta so that is all i have ever shot, a 92d centurian if i recall correctly. i do have some pretty big mitts so hopefully i can find something that will fit nicely.
