New from Beretta: The Pico

Beretta has long been a respected name in pistols, and this year the company is prepared to add another one to its storied line: the Beretta Pico.

On display at the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, the Pico is a micro compact carry pistol. It's chambered in .380, and enters the market as the thinnest .380 by a full millimeter—all told, it's just 18 mm at its widest point. The grip frame, sights and even caliber (which can be changed to .32) are all simple to modify. It features a removable, serialized sub-chassis and modular frame, which simplifies disassembly for easy cleaning and customizing.

The modular chassis can accommodate a Lasermax Laser frame and be customized with a selection of colored frames.

Technical Specifications:

Model: Pico
Action: Double/Single
Caliber: .380
Capacity: 6+1 Rounds

Todd, you must not be familiar with many small pocket pistols, Baretta is doing well to get the Pico to hold 6 rounds. Rest assured, there will be extended mags coming.

This is obviously a development along the same lines as the Nano which is a 9mm. I can't see any reason to get upset about it. All manufacturers make .380's, and they may eventually make an extended mag for it like they make for the Nano. I have a Nano, and it's an excellent CCW.

NY laws went into effect in January. It is unlikely that Beretta had enough time from concept to development to conform to anyone's laws. It is more likely that this is Beretta's answer to the pocket .380's already in existence prior to NY's laws. Mag capacity is still ten rounds in NY although you can only carry seven rounds. All manufacturers make ten round mags already. That eliminates most companies if we used that as a reason not to buy their products

It's still a .380. I would rather have a little bit larger with a 9 mm

I've always respected the Beretta Gun line... But going and conforming to New York State, Gun Laws is just despicable. Now if you live in New York, and want to buy a new handgun that isn't a revolver, really what choice do you have? Your engineers at Beretta, make me ill, right to the center of my soul. Thanks to this distasteful monstrosity you have lost a faithful follower of your brand.

I can see tricking it out with a 15 round mag extension.. Laser sight and a cool set of trijicon nite sights and a 6 point adjustable stock
