  1. According to this piece on The Firearm Blog (, Beretta has finally started shipping the Pico, roughly 1.5 years after it announced the gun.

  2. I agree with the low ratings. Half-height slots on the slide with slick upper make it very hard to work this gun’s tight action. Trigger is very hard. Muzzle flip strong. Sights ok, but not great. Slick frame makes it hard to control with standard mag (pinky hangs off), but extension (no adnl rds) helps. Mag release very stiff, too narrow to do with thumb, have to cant pistol and use other hand to rls mag. Slide release is way too thin, my thumb won’t grasp it, have to use a key to work it. My old hands won’t load first round unless I’ve already opened the slide because it’s so hard to grip. Shot 6 different brands of .380, one stovepipe and two failure to install until I learned to open the slide first. Can’t find the advertised .32 ACP conversion kit at all, but switching to that lighter round might alleviate some of the issues. Neat concept, but of 8 m/f at range, not one liked it (slide issues and stiffness even after 150 rds mainly). My Kel tec P32 works and feels better.

  3. I love pocket guns, own most. This is my favorite. I have my first one that now has well over 7,000 rds that run like a sewing machine. Stainless Steel through out the gun, the receiver, chassis, ships with a stainless steel guide rod. Love the modular design. Easy to change out grips or parts if you want to. The Trigger on the Gen 2 model is a perfect DAO. Much like the Kahr. Smooth, controlled all the way through and deliberate.
    Sights are best in class. Easy to change out to night sights. Magazines look like top end custom 1911. Even a steel follower. Folks this gun is MILD, I mean very mild to shoot without very much muzzle flip. I recently purchased my third Pico. One for Carry, One for range and one for the safe.
    I shoot pocket gun often. Usually all the others I have well fold like a cheap lawn chair with any substantial ammo down range. The Pico will keep on running. And plus P rated. I shoot a lot of hot loads and the Pico handles them fine. Beretta did a fine job of the Pico. Bravo to them.
