Man, I saw the latest Guns & Ammo magazine and had to read more about this gun. It’s scheduled to be available in Q4 and I think it’ll be good to haul around when it’s hot or make a good nightstand gun. I really have a thing for stainless slides just so they hold up better being in an out of holsters and just being packed around. This little guy is no thicker than a deck of cards. The polymer bottom comes in several colors and it actually has real sights which I think is a plus for a gun this size. See the link below to Beretta’s website they have a pretty cool video up.

Product Description:

Pico 
Super thin, ultra concealable, and easy to configure, the Beretta Pico sets a new standard for the micro compact carry pistol. The thinnest .380 auto made…by a full millimeter…the snag-free Pico’s slide and frame is a true 18 mm at their widest point. The grip frame, sights, and caliber (go from a .380 to a .32 by changing the barrel) are all simple to modify. Extremely soft shooting with a double action trigger, the Pico is easy to control with its smooth, tip-to-parallel, straight line action. The removable, serialized sub-chassis and modular frame feature simple disassembly for easy cleaning and customizing. The modular chassis can accommodate a Lasermax Laser frame and be customized with a selection of colored frames. Even the dovetail quick-change sights can be adjusted or replaced by the user. Light, durable, and easy to draw from concealment, the Pico brings all the reliability and quality of a Beretta to bear on its standing as the leader of a new generation of concealed carry firearms.
